Natural Solution for Cleaning Drains

There are two problems that we have dealt with when thinking about our kitchen or bathroom drains: a clogged drain, or a smelly kitchen garbage disposal.  This solution will work for both issues!  I was very excited to try this, and saw great results!  I saw an article online by Reader's Digest that gave this information. 

All you need are two basic things: Vinegar and Baking Soda!  For our kitchen sink, first I ran hot water into the disposal, and turned the disposal on to clear out anything that could be remaining.  Then, I poured approximately 1/2 cup baking soda into the disposal.  After that, I poured about 1/2 cup vinegar down the drain.  This immediately caused a foaming reaction to happen, which was good!  I let the drain sit, untouched, for 10-15 minutes. I then ran very hot water through the drain again, and turned on the garbage disposal.  Immediately, I could tell that the horrible smell was gone!  Hooray!  This should also work wonders for a clogged drain!
