I have this annoying drain in my bathroom. Not only does it not drain well, it also always looks dirty. Every time you wash your hands it takes so long to drain that the sink looks gross. Since I can’t clean the sink every time someone uses it I decided to clean the drain.
Cleaning the drain is so easy to do. I don’t like using things like drain-o in the house. Not only does it have a bunch of chemicals in it, but it’s not cheap either. So, I like to use baking soda, vinegar, and hot water to make my own DIY drain cleaner. If you haven’t made your own homemade drain cleaner before I highly recommend it. This DIY drain cleaner is easy to make and is the best drain opener.
Start by putting about 1/4-1/2 cup baking soda down the drain. You may need to push it down the drain a bit. I just use my fingers to get most of it down the drain.
Then add 1/2 cup vinegar to the drain and close the pop-up section. If you don’t have a way of closing the drain then I recommend adding a plate or bowl over the drain so the mixture doesn’t all come out.
Let the mix set for about 30 minutes. Open the pop-up section or remove the plate and pour some hot water down the drain. I heat my water up on the stove to get it really hot.
Now your drain should be clear and water should flow through it. I love how easy this DIY drain cleaner is. This DIY drain cleaner does a fantastic job of cleaning the drain without all the chemicals or cost.
