Natural Drain Cleaner

This is a little different post, but I figured I’d let everyone know how I cleaned my bathroom sink drain using products found in most kitchens that didn’t involve toxic chemicals. I found this “recipe” in varying forms on the Internet, but what I used was:

1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup vinegar (heated up)

I poured the above down the drain and let it foam up (reminded my of junior high chemistry experiments) as it made a chemical reaction. After about 15 minutes I poured 2 quarts of boiling water down to wash things down. I’m not really sure the salt is needed as many recipes didn’t include it. Also some used different amounts of vinegar and baking soda, but this recipe worked for me. I also read that you can pour a 1/2 cup baking soda and a 1/2 cup salt down the drain before you go to bed and rinse it out with 2 cups boiling water in the morning to keep your drains flowing. A simple Internet search will show you other combinations to try.
