Clog Drain

If your drain isn't flowing as easily as it should, then it's probably a bit clogged. Instead of paying big bucks for chemical-filled concoctions, try fixing the problem yourself with a homemade drain cleaner
What You'll Need:
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup cream of tartar
2 cups boiling water
Mix together the baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar in a small container. The salt and baking soda work together to help scour pipes and break up buildup, while the cream of tartar naturally cleans metals. Shake the mixture and sprinkle half down the clogged drain.
Pour in the boiling water and let the drain buster work its magic for about an hour. Then rinse with cool water. You should notice a difference in your drainage.

    Mine is a small, hand held Haan. It works great but if I had it to do over I would get one that held more water so you don't have to fill it so often. You will really appreciate using it for all kinds of things. Unclogging and cleaning drains is my favorite but it cleans shower, sinks and all kinds of things. Remember it is hot water tho. I used it on some wood trim and made the trim sticky cuz it melted it. Did the same thing on my sofa and it melted the spot a bit. I promise you will love how it cleans tho. All kinds of things you haven't thought of yet

    I use baking soda 1/2 box and white cheap vinegar works every time. I put the baking soda in first and then the vinegar let it work for about 10 minutes and then flush with hot water for about 1 minute. Works for hair in the shower too.
