Eco Cleaners: Baking Soda

Did you know that you can use baking soda to help clean/unclog your drains? Well, I didn't until yesterday when I stumbled on this little tip while looking for something else.

Here's the scoop!

Pour 1 cup of baking soda down the drain followed by 1 cup of hot vinegar. Try heating the vinegar in the microwave before adding it to the drain. Wait 5 minutes before flushing the drain with 2 quarts of hot water. You can repeat this process a few times if it is necessary. If this is the first time you have cleaned your drain in a long time it may be necessary to repeat the baking soda flush a couple of times.
