1/1 Photo of Natural Drain Unclogger
Based on a recipe from my Shaw’s grocery store’s Wild Harvest November 2009 holiday pamphlet. It says, “Along with potato peels and onion skins often comes a clogged sink. Thankfully, there is a way to unclog sinks without sending toxic chemicals down the drain and out into the environment.” Cook time is boiling water time. I can honestly say that I use this regularly in my kitchen sink and it works as well for me as Draino did.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Clean any debris from sink.
- 2Boil a gallon of water. Slowly, pour this down the drain. For minor clogs, this may do the trick. If not, continue with next steps.
- 3Pour baking soda down the drain. Immediately follow this with the vinegar. The interaction between the two should be enough to break up the clog.
- 4Allow the sink to “rest” in this state for 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil.
- 5Pour two quarts of the boiling water down the drain after the 15-20 minutes, to rinse away the vinegar, baking soda and clogging debris.
- 6Place the cup plunger over the sink drain and plunge to thoroughly dislodge the clogging materials.
- 7Finish by pouring two more quarts of boiling water down the drain.
