Whenever dirt, soap scum, food and other particles builds up, drains become clogged. This usually happens in the kitchen or the bathroom. When all these build up happens, your drain won’t function properly making your daily routine difficult to carry out. Resolving this problem right away is essential so you could go back to your normal activities.
The first thing that usually comes to mind when drain becomes slow is Drano. This is a product which reacts with water and produce heat, pressure and instability that would force the clog to go down the drain.
There are safer methods you can use to take care of problems with your drain. These methods also produce the same result but without the harsh chemicals that could harm your family, pet or the environment.
For minor clogging, combine ½ cup of salt with 4 liters of water. Pour the salt solution down the drain and let it sit for 15 minutes. Pour hot water down the drain.
The salt will help dissolve the clog while the hot water will further soften the clog and eventually unclogs the drain.
Baking Soda and Vinegar
Take out remaining water on the drain. Add 1 cup of baking soda, followed by 1 cup of vinegar. Don’t be alarmed if you notice a bubbling effect because this is normal and it means that the combination of baking soda and vinegar is working. Ones this chemical reaction happens, the clog will gradually be broken down and the clog will be detached by itself.
Cover the drain and allow the solution to work for about 15 minutes. Check every now and then. When the bubbling subsides, carefully pour hot water or boiling water down the drain. You can only use boiling water if your pipes are made of metal but not if it’s made from plastic because it will melt.
Vinegar, Baking Soda and Salt
If the 2 approaches won’t work, try combining vinegar, baking soda and salt for ultimate de-clogging effect. Pour 1 cup of salt and 1 cup of baking soda down the drain followed by 1 cup of vinegar and leave for 10-15 minutes. For much better result, let it sit overnight. Pour hot or boiling water the next day.
These methods can be used in de-clogging any drains in your home. The next time you have this problem at home, you can handle it yourself using things you can easily find in your refrigerator.
