You will need:

  • 1 cup of white vinegar
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • Boiling water
  • A drain stop or drain plug

Step 1

Sprinkle the baking soda into the drain. Then pour the vinegar down the sink. Quickly put the drain plug on to the drain and let it sit in place until the fizzing has stopped. After it has stopped let it sit for 30 minutes.

Step 2

After 30 minutes, boil a pot of water. Once the water is boiling, remove the drain plug and pour the boiling water into the drain. The hot water mixed with the vinegar and baking soda will clear out any clogs, freeing up your drain pipe.

Your drain should be back to working like a charm!
