Once a week, I put the sink stopper, drain strainer, dish brush, and sponges in the dishwasher to run with the load of dishes. It is just a tiny little thing, but it makes a world of difference. These items stay nice and clean and never smell bad!
unclog drain using vinegar ,baking soda & hot water
Once a month in the bathroom sink I pour half a box of baking soda down the drain & then a pint bottle of vinegar let set half hour then take a pan of boiling water pour down the drain & have a plunger ready & plunge real good all this black gunk comes gushing up.Then I take out the drain stopper & use an old toothbrush to clean down the sides of drain. If the water in the bathtub starts to drain out too slow I use this method also
