I love this easy all natural drain cleaner recipe! All you need is baking soda, salt and cream of tartar!
I use baking soda, salt and cream of tartar to clean my drains.
Mix 1 cup soda with 1 cup salt.
Add 1/4 cup cream of tartar.
Combine dry ingredients.
I use 1/4 cup of the mixture in my sinks, 1/2 cup of the mix for larger drains like the bathtub.
Follow with 2 cups of boiling water. It will foam and bubble your cloggs away!

    I want to do my upstairs drains. But I can't carry the boiling water up the stairs. Does hot water work? Is there an alternative?

    Cream of tartar is expensive. I've been using a cup +/- of baking soda (bi.-carb.) BUT I buy it in bulk from the swimming pool shop - we use it in the pool occasionally - then with a good glug of cleaning vinegar; then if you are really keen, a good rinse out with boiling water. Do this for the outside drains as well.

    What kind of baking soda do you use? I apologize!
