Posted on August 30, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

Clog-free drainHair, soap scum, goo. Just a few things that can build up in your sink, causing your drains to empty slowly, giving you something else to contend with during your bathroom cleaning ritual.

An Ounce of Prevention

Before sharing a few easy drain cleaning tips, let’s discuss prevention. Have you considered an inexpensive drain strainer? This may help keep hair and some other items out of your drains, which reduces the number of times you have to unclog.

Drain Cleaning Recipe 1

Drop a couple of Alka Seltzer tablets into a slow drain and follow with a vinegar chaser. After a few minutes, rinse with hot water. Your drain will be as good as new.

Drain Cleaning Recipe 2

Would you like another bathroom cleaning tip?  Baking soda will not only clear up clogged drains, but it will also keep them smelling fresh. Try this: pour a half cup of salt and one cup of baking soda down the drain and let it sit overnight. In the morning chase it with a pot (two to three cups) of boiling water.

You will get the best results if you do not wait until your drain is clogged to use these cleaning recipes. Instead use them periodically to stop obstructions from piling up.
