Our bathtub drain is clogged. Woe!
Drano isn’t very good for the environment, so here’s an alternate, natural solution that works just as well. Baking soda and vinegar. As a tip, buy baking soda in bulk if possible, it has a lot of household uses and it’s much cheaper this way. I buy a 12lb bag from Costco for $6.21.
Take 1 cup of dry baking soda and pour that down the drain.
Then take 3/4 cup vinegar and pour that down the drain after it. Plug the drain immediately afterward. Leave this in there for 30 minutes. While you’re at it, boil 4-5 cups of water.
After the 30 minutes, pour the boiling water down the drain, slowly. Your drain should now be clear!
NOTE: For small drains such as those in the bathroom sink or bathtub, put less baking soda and less vinegar. You may want to run it 2-3 times before pouring the hot water down.
TIME INVESTMENT: 5-10 minutes for baking soda and vinegar, 30 minute wait time.
