- 1 cup of baking soda
- 1 cup of white vinegar
- Pour the baking soda down the drain. I find a spatula helps get it all down.
- Pour the vinegar down the drain and immediately close the plug. This will force the mixture to push the blockage down.
- Wait 5 minutes
- Run water, if still blocked, try pouring 4 cups of boiling water down the drain. If this doesn’t work, repeat the above steps.
I recently tried this in my bathtub and it took two tries but worked like a charm. And the best part was I didn’t have to buy any harsh chemicals, hurt my respiratory system or pollute the water.
