Judy has shared her tip for how she makes a vinegar and baking soda drain clog remover.

Judy says:

I put 1/4 cup of baking soda down my drains and pour in 1- 2 cups of vinegar at least once a month.

Let them work for a half an hour or so and then turn on the hot water and rinse it away.

I have been able to get slow running drains unclogged by using this method and haven't had to call a plumber.

Baking soda and vinegar are two of my favorite products.

Taylor says:

Thanks so much for sharing this tip for making a vinegar and baking soda drain clog remover Judy.

This is an example of one of the classic ways to use these two versatile and natural cleaning products together, to take advantage of the chemical reaction they have when combined which fizzes a lot (as can be seen from the picture above).

This fizzing is a great natural way to dislodge gunk in your drains to keep them cleared. As Judy mentions, this works best for slow moving drains, and not those that are completely clogged.

Further, it is really a great preventative measure that you can do for the drains around your home, and if done on a regular basis as Judy does it, can keep you from developing larger clogs that are more difficult to remove.

If you've got some more tips for using these two products together, I'd love for you to share your baking soda and vinegar uses, combined, here, or click the link to see the tips already submitted.

vinegar and boiling water

For maintenance put 1/2 gallon of vinegar, followed by a tea kettle of boiling water, down the drain. Try to remember to do this quarterly.

For a clogged or very slow running drain this may have to be repeated multiple times but it works with patience.

Do the maintenance and you won't have to go through the trouble of the multiple applications and patience.
