So the sink or tub drain is getting slower and s-l-o-w-e-r. What are you gonna do?
Well, you could dump that scary toxic stuff down there, but it’s expensive and … well … toxic.
If the drain is … um … draining, but is just slower than it should be, try this.
If it is out right blocked, get someone strong to try this. (Preferably, not wearing their Sunday best. The fun of it just might get out of hand.)
Once the sink is cleared and without running water first, dump some baking soda in the drain.
Get ready ’cause this is the fun part.
With some kind of stopper, even a baggie over your hand is fine, dump in some white vinegar and very quickly block the drain and hold it. Tightly.
Whee! Look at the fun.
A little kitchen chemistry saves the day.
Your kids will think you’re a genius– and very cool.
