DIY: Drain Cleaner/Declogger

One of the best things about this here interweb is that there are tons of do it yourself home cleaning recipes out there for all of us to share with each other. Now, I'm no fan of cleaning, but I do love the smell and look of a clean house. This includes making sure that there's nothing backing up in any sink, tubs, etc. in my home.

So today I figured I'd spread the word and share with you this easy peasy declogger/drain cleaner recipe I found a couple of years ago and what I use in my house bi-monthly. Even if I don't have a clog I try and use this every once in a while just to clear things in our drains. And you know what, I haven't had to rush to the store to buy Drano and have saved a few bucks in my pocket. Anything helps!


DIY: Homemade Drain Cleaner/Declogger

Pour your baking soda in your sink/tub/drain first.

Drains should be good to go!

  13. Like you, I've been looking for a DIY drain cleaner and declogger too! Aside from your mentioned baking soda and vinegar mixture, you can also try pouring hot water with salt to your drains at least once a week to prevent any accumulation of dirt that might block the drains.
