Declogging Without Harsh Chemicals

We had a SUPER DUPER GROSS mess in our house last week.  I’ll spare you the details, except to say that it was revolting.  I’ve traveled to 3rd world countries and seen some scary stuff.  This was up there.

We needed a super-hero for our drain, and FAST!  I didn’t want to use harsh chemicals because, well, I didn’t.  I also didn’t want to spend $7 on a drain declogger.

Vinegar and Baking Soda are my new heros.  As well as my husband, because he cleaned up the SUPER DUPER GROSS MESS.

My husband hero dumped about 1 c of baking soda in the toilet, and then followed it by a cup or two of vinegar.  Neat bubbles ensued.  Then he chased it with some boiling water.    (A variation on this could make a great homeschool project – perhaps a volcano?)   He used the baking soda and vinegar heroes a few times and, voila, we had a UNCLOGGED DRAIN!    We were so happy to have saved a possible plumber bill and found an all-natural way to eliminate clogs!
