Baking soda and vinegar, when combined, have a chemical reaction which makes it fizz and foam.
This reaction, when it happens in a slow drain, can help physically remove the clog which is slowly building up in your drain, cleaning it naturally and safely.
– 1 cup baking soda
– 1 cup white vinegar
– 1 gallon boiling water
– pour the baking soda down the drain.
– slowly pour the vinegar into the drain so that it fizzes and foams.
– wait until the vinegar and baking soda stop bubbling, which could take about five minutes or so.
– slowly pour the boiling water down the drain. It will flush away the clog that was already loosened by the reaction of the baking soda and vinegar.
Repeat this step a few times, depending on the severity of the clog.
