Homemade “Natural Draino”

    We are trying to get away from harmful chemicals in our home, as well as find frugal ways to keep things clean, etc.  Here’s a recipe for homemade draino that I have come across many, many times and have finally decided to try for myself.  One thing at a time right?? =)

    1.  Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain, immediately following with 1 cup white distilled vinegar.

    2.  Cover the drain so that it doesn’t bubble over while it’s working on clearing the blockage (some recommend a wet washcloth to do the job!).

    3.  Follow with a pot of boiling water 30 minutes later.

      1. I have tried that but if it is really plugged, it is usually lots of hair that needs to be pulled out.

      2. Yeah…I usually try to remove any obvious hair clumps before-hand.
