Natural Homemade Drain-o

I just read this article and recipe from a site called Bonzai Aphrodite (via Lifehacker) and had to share!

I have used baking soda for cleaning in the past and vinegar but not together. What a great idea! What is funny is we just had to buy drain-o like a month ago...I wish I would have known about this.

I am always looking for ways to clean that are not only natural, but better for the environment, and more cost effective too.

If you have any thoughts or suggestions I would love to hear from you! :) Thanks Bonzai Aphrodite for a great tip!

Drain De-Clogger Recipe:

1/2 Cup Baking Soda

1 Cup Vinegar

1 Gallon Boiling Water

  • Carefully siphon all the baking soda down the drain
  • Pour in 1/2 of the vinegar, covering the hole so the fizz is forced down, not up (No need to cover the hole if doing this on a toilet)
  • Add the second half of the vinegar, following the same procedure
  • Allow to sit for 15 minutes or so
  • Then flush with an entire gallon of boiling water
