How do I make a DIY solution to clear a slow flowing drain?

How do I keep a slow flowing drain moving. I saw a hint using cream of tartar, salt and something else, but haven't been able to find it again.

    Remove as much as possible with a snake or drain cleaning tool. Pour ½ cup baking soda then ½ cup white vinegar in the drain and cover, letting sit for 20 minutes. Boil water, remove cover, and pour water down the drain. You may have to repeat the process.

    If its a bathroom drain, I would get a drain snake at the Dollar Tree or hardware store and clean all the hair and gunk out.
