I remember when I was little, my friends and I would use mud to form a volcano in my backyard, and then we would mix vinegar and baking soda in the middle so it could erupt. It was a cool experiment that we enjoyed doing. Who would have thought that I would use the same ingredients to unclog my drain over two decades later, right?
Well, it turns out that you don’t need anything else to clean your drain and get rid of all the impurities and hair that are clogging it!
How I Unclog My Drain With Only Two Natural Ingredients?
As you already read, the two ingredients that I use are indeed vinegar and baking soda! I don’t bother going to the store to buy a special fancy detergent or a cleaner that is created for unclogging drains – it’s so much easier and more effective to just go in my kitchen, grab these both ingredients, and call it a day!
First, I start with pouring boiling hot water down the drain then I sprinkle half a cup of baking soda. After a few minutes, I pour a cup of vinegar followed by another cup of boiling hot water.
Next, I just place something like a towel on top of the drain so I can cover it and allow all of these ingredients to work their magic for at least 10 minutes before I rinse everything with more boiling water… and that’s it!
Both the baking soda and the vinegar will create a fizzing reaction which is going to loosen up all the chemicals, soap, hairs, and other impurities clogging the drain. Then the hot water will remove them completely!
Are you convinced that you no longer need to buy commercial cleaners? You will save money, time, and energy so give my method a try next time you are having issues with your drain!
