Vinegar and Baking Soda
Click here for our recipe card that offers the specific instructions for preparing and applying this drain cleaning process. Essentially, you can put baking soda in the drain. Then, mix lemon juice and vinegar. The lemon juice helps create a fresh smell and has natural antibacterial properties. You then pour the liquid down the drain. Bubbles should slightly erupt from the drain because the baking soda and vinegar create an acidic mixture when combined. Finally, pour boiling water down the drain to rinse away any remaining debris.
If you don’t have a clogged drain but would like to prevent one, you can pour a gallon of boiling hot water down the drain in small amounts. This will rinse any residual grease or dirt through your drain and prevent things from sticking—which leads to clogs. We recommend doing this to your drains every 2 weeks or so.
As with any DIY project, there are limitations to at-home remedies. If you have a more serious drain cleaning problem, these solutions will not correct it. Before beginning any at-home plumbing project, be sure to contact a plumbing expert at Roby’s Plumbing for expert advice and tips. They can also help schedule a plumbing maintenance call to help with new residential or new commercial construction.
