Secrets of Success

Drano No!!!




I was told by a plumber that instead of using Drano or other harsh chemicals to pour baking soda down the drain, followed by vinegar, then cover the drain. It is better for the pipes too. Have been doing this for years, works like a charm and is cheap.

  • Yes, it works for me, too. Been using it for a while. The only difference is that I let the hot water run over it for a few minutes afterwards. No chemical smells of drano or anything else. My nose loves this recipe.

    Misha72b, I play it by ear, so to speak. I guess enough to cover the drain opening with the baking soda and enough vinegar to dilute all of the baking soda. - by SUSHENO
