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!
