Irisa's notes for this recipe:
This is very effect! And a whole lot cheaper...and safer than those store bought drain cleaners....:-)
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Mix the salt & baking soda and pour into drain.
Follow with vinegar
Wait 15 minutes then " slowly " pour 2 cups almost boiling water down the drain.
If it seems to be draining well, then repeat this every two weeks or once a month, or every other month as necessary.
If it still seems sluggish then repeat.

Irisa, thanks for posting this! I have a slow drain right now!! I have the ingredients to do this today!

Marcy you are so welcome.....but remember if the drain is really running slow you may need to do this twice.....I do this to all my drain's once a month, whether they need it or not....cheaper than a plumber...have a wonderful Wednesday!

Irisa I will do this once a month also once I get the drain cleared. Did not have time yet today to do this. Been one of those days! phewww! lol

Oh yes much cheaper than a plumber and also cheaper than commercial cleaners.

thanks again!

Irisa - wow wow wow! I use to have to do 2 or sometimes 3 applications with commercial cleaners! One did the trick! Thanks for the info!

Will have hubby do the tub tomorrow then once a month to keep them clear!

Thanks Again!
