How to clean your clogged drain naturally and in a more fun way
Our bathroom sink's drain was really clogged last week and I was thinking about how to clean it without using chemicals like Mr Muscle that I've used in the past. Now I am not sure if the chemicals in Mr Muscle are bad for the environment or not but I wanted to try to do it with stuff that we had at home.
Before, the water took ages going down the drain:
So after some googling I found this tip and thought it was easy enough. Here it goes:
Put some water to boil and get three cups, one with baking soda, one with salt and one with with vinegar. Make sure that the sink is dry.
And then you just drop then down the drain one at a time:
1. Baking Soda
3. Vinegar, once you get to this stage the fun begins, buzzing, bubbling and steaming
4. Last pour the boiling water on top.
The kid in me really enjoyed this little home made chemistry and the best thing is that it worked! No more clogged drain, without needing to buy any chemical based stuff from the store and it was fun too!
