READY IN: 2mins

For those of you who hate poison-type drain cleaners, use white vinegar and baking soda. This will clean and unclog a drain. Also drops of white vinegar in your pet's water will keep away fleas and ticks!

Mirj -- great idea to post this "recipe". It works very well, I've used this combination many times. Here's another one for you: I had already tried this remedy on a REALLY bad grease clog, to no avail. My grandpa just happened to call at that time, and I --- well, I whined to him. He told me what he used to do when he was the manager/fix-it guy for a trailer park: get out your handheld blow-dryer. Make sure there is no water on the floor where you're standing so you won't electrocute yourself, then open up the access to the drain pipe - that little trap thingy. Aim the hot air right on that, and it will melt the grease and let everything slide on through. My Grandpa Rocks!


  1. Pour baking soda into drain.
  2. Follow with vinegar.
