Over time, the permeability of sink and tub drains decreases, because a significant amount of waste is collected in the pipes. This leads to complete clogging after a while, and the water will not drain at all.
When this happens, you do not need to call an installer or spend a lot of money on drain cleaning solutions. You can unclog the drains with a mixture of ingredients that can be found in any household. The procedure is short and simple, and no tools or special tools are required.
How can you unclog drains?
- 200 g baking soda
- 200 g salt
- 150 ml vinegar
How to prepare the cleaning mixture
First mix the salt and baking soda, and carefully pour the mixture into the drain. Boil up the vinegar and pour it into the drain too. The abundant foam is the result of the chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar, and it will loosen up the dirt that has clogged the pipe.
After the foaming subsides, pour hot water into the drain to wash down the dirt. Repeat the procedure if necessary. In most cases, the water will drain without any problem after the first treatment. The ingredients will dissolve all deposits without causing corrosion of drain pipe.
