Our bathtub was clogged a couple of days ago and I didn’t have any Drano. And maybe I’m the last person on the planet to discover or enjoy this science project, but after searching the internet for a solution, I found out that if you put baking soda down the drain (you might need a knife or something to make it so liquid can flow through) and then pour an equal amount of white vinegar on the baking soda (I used a cup of each), wait 20 mins and then pour a pot of boiling water down the drain – VOILA, drain unclogged! (note: this is also great entertainment to kids as the baking soda bubbles volcanically when vinegar is added).
…beats paying $6 for a chemical drain unclogger!
In my search, I also came across what I believe will be one of my new favorite search sites here…for those of you looking for organic or eco-friendly cleaning solutions, they have some incredible suggestions…as well as a “how to” for just about anything else you can think of.
