Anywhoo...after staring at my own spit and toothpaste funk for one morning too many, I'd had enough. I've seen this done all over blog land before so I figured it couldn't hurt to try. Although, I was still a little....shall we say
Here's all you need to unclog your drain without using nasty chemicals:
|Salt, baking soda and vinegar.|
First put a kettle of water on to boil.
While the water is boiling you can pour 1/2 cup each dry baking soda and salt into the drain.
|Baking soda going in.|
Then follow with 1 cup vinegar.
|Vinegar and prayers headed in.|
Next hold your breath and pray your sink doesn't explode like your 4th grade build-your-own volcano project. It will bubble and fizz quite a bit.
|Plop plop fizz fizz. I'm childish I know.|
Then pour the entire kettle of boiling water into the drain and watch it work it's magic.
|I think my kettle needs a good cleaning.|
|Hot! Pour carefully.|
You can even see the oogies (very scientific terms used around here) floating up as they are being unclogged.
This worked great! I patted myself on the back and sat down to enjoy a nice cup of hot tea.
Darn it- why did I empty the entire kettle?!? Hindsight and all that. Learn from my mistakes. Pour yourself a cup of tea before unclogging the drain :)
