Here’s an all-natural way to clean drains: shower drains, kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, and more. I tried this on our kitchen sink (after a disgusting “mystery” smell took over, which was coming from the drain – gross!) and it worked great. The kids loved watching so they could hear the “fizz” in the drain after the vinegar mixed with the baking soda.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- equal parts baking soda and white vinegar (I used 1 cup each)
- boiling water (a few cups worth or so, to rinse afterward)
WHAT YOU DO:
- Sprinkle baking soda down drain.
- Pour vinegar on top.
- Let sit for 10 minutes.
- Rinse by pouring boiling water down the drain (turn garbage disposal on to clean blades, if one is in the drain).
