Our sink has been draining gradually for quite a long time; however, complete laziness has shielded us from taking care of business. The previous evening when we were brushing our teeth, we understood that we’d let everything go excessively far. Thus, today, equipped with a teapot, a Q-tip, a container of baking soda, and a jug of white vinegar, we got to work…
To clear a slow drain that you think is clogged with gunk (perceive that this strategy might not work as well if your problem is a hair-clogged drain), this is what you ought to do:
- Set a full tea kettle on the stove to boil.
- Dry your sink out with a rag.
- Now, measure a 1/2 cup baking soda and dump it down your drain. In most sinks, the sink stopper will be in the way. We used a Q-tip to push the majority of the baking soda down the drain. Don’t worry if you can’t get it all down, the next step will do the rest of the work for you.
- After the baking soda, measure a 1/2 cup white vinegar and dump that down the drain. Admire the fizzing for a minute or two.
- Now, the full tea kettle should be boiling. Carefully pour the whole kettle full of boiling water down the drain.
- Turn your faucet on and see if your sink is now draining at a normal speed. Ours was and we were thrilled!
