DIY - How to clean your drain naturally


I love this DIY - How to clean your drain naturally. It is a great money saver! Recently I shared with you how to remove hair build-up and residue naturally.
From that post we got a tip that I wanted to share with you all on how to clean your drain naturally.
Put 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain, then 2 cups white vinegar.
Cover drain with a plate to force foam down.
Wait 30 minutes, then rinse with hot water!
Wow! What an affordable solution to chemicals! I did it and it works great! You can add 5 - 10 drops of lemon essential oil for disinfection and to help the drain smell better too!
Be sure to use HOT water after to rinse the solution through.

    Can anyone tell me where I can get baking soda from in the UK. Can get very small tubs of baking powder amongst cake making items in supermarket but is this that same thing?

    I've been doing this for years but never thought about plugging the drain to force the foam down! Best thing to remember is to never put any oil/grease/food down the sink.
