Store-bought drain cleaners are expensive and caustic, learn how to make your own homemade drain cleaner using this simple recipe:

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 5 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Pour half a box of baking soda down the drain.

  2. Pour vinegar over top of the baking soda to create a foaming action.

  3. Allow the foam to settle, and repeat until all of the baking soda is gone.

  4. Enjoy a fresher smelling drain, and more money in your pocket.

Tips:

  1. For maximum effect, allow the drain to sit unused for a while after cleaning.
  2. Run hot water down the drain the first time you use it. This should help to remove any dirt or debris left behind.
