Our bathroom sink was not draining properly so my loving husband spent some time cleaning out the tubes. Unfortunately our sink tubes needed more in depth cleaning and my husband was waiting for a free moment to tackle this task. But before my husband had to unscrew one billion bolts, I remembered about an e-mail that I received from my church friend months ago. I was unbelievably happy that I saved her e-mail just in case.
She suggested using the following ingredients instead of Drano or any other commercial unclogging liquids.
1 cup baking soda - pour down clogged drain
Follow with 1 cup distilled white vinegar
Wait 20 minutes
Pour a pan of boiling water down the drain (I used a 2 qt sauce pan)
At first I was skeptical that it would unclog the drain, but decided to try anyways. After consulting with my father in law to insure that I won’t mess up the tubes, my hubby and I began our mission to unclog our sink. I followed my friend’s recipe and in about 30 minutes the sink was operating like brand new…no joke. I was so excited and proud of myself and I could have issued a money saving/time saving medal to a creator of this brilliant recipe! Seriously, I couldn’t stop smiling the night we unclogged the drain in less than 30 minutes and very little effort, that I was wondering if other sinks around the house were showing the sings of clogging (unfortunately I found none).
