Clogged Drains

If you have a clogged drain, after bailing out water, pour baking soda and vinegar (white or cider) down the drain. A foaming action will occur cleaning out the drain. Very eco friendly.

    This is a awesome tip, and I like that I am not pouring harmful chemicals down the drain. The fact that it saves me money is a bonus.

    Good timing, I've needed to clean my drains for a week but never remember to buy the stuff that eats holes in pipes. I'd forgotten this simple, cheap and green idea. Thanks.
