You are there using your sinks when you notice that the water runs slowly. How many times has this happened to you?
Clogged sinks, in fact, are household errands that we sooner or later face due to the accumulation of food debris, hair and dander.
But did you know that there is a DIY trick that can free them quickly and effortlessly? Let’s see it together!
Vinegar and baking soda.
The first remedy we want to suggest you is to use two ingredients that you will surely have in your pantry: vinegar and baking soda , products known for being natural disorganizers and for exerting a strong anti-limescale action.
So all you have to do is first pour a cup of baking soda down the drain . Then wait a few seconds for the baking soda to go down, then pour in a cup of vinegar.
You will notice a little foam forming and you will feel a ‘bubbling’ due to the effervescent chemical reaction between the vinegar and the baking soda. It will be this reaction that will help you to clear the drain. Finally, you can pour in very hot water to further free the drain of any residue.
Caution ! There is a long debate about the use of vinegar in drains, as it seems that its approach is not exactly green. Therefore, it would be ideal to give preference to alternative methods, first of all citric acid
Another trick is to use citric acid, an environmentally friendly compound found mainly in citrus fruits. Thanks to its effectiveness, it can be used not only for plumbing problems but also for deep cleaning of household appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines!
Dissolve 150 g of citric acid in a liter of boiling water and then pour the solution down the drain. At this point, leave it to act overnight without opening the taps and that’s it: your pipes will be free!
Did you know that kitchen salt can also be useful in these cases? In fact, combined with baking soda, it becomes a super effective drain cleaner!
In addition, thanks to its absorbent function, it also absorbs bad odors due to clogged pipes. It is no coincidence that it also serves to eliminate the stench of dampness in the house!
The procedure is really very simple, as you just need to pour 200 grams of baking soda and 200 grams of salt down the clogged drain. After that, slowly pour a pot of boiling water and let it act.
This remedy is very effective especially in case of clogged channels due to hair accumulation.
Baking soda :
Sure, it sounds too easy and good to be true, but they seem very effective.What are we talking about? Soda , which thanks to its “bubble” can help clear sink pipes.
Pour the contents of the bottle or can of soda down the drain and let it sit for a few minutes. After that, turn on the hot water and rinse.
Alternatively, you can also mix 2 cups of soda with 1 cup of baking soda and 1/2 cup of salt. Pour it all down the drain and let it act. Finally, rinse with water.
We recommend that you use this remedy periodically as a remedy to prevent clogged drains.
Finally, let’s see together how to use brewer’s yeast, useful not only for food purposes but also to clean the pipes and eliminate bad odors that are released. You can also use it to eliminate the stench of the toilet drain!
Pour a 200 ml glass of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil . Then add a small piece of brewer’s yeast and let it melt.
Finally, pour the solution down the drain and let it sit overnight – the next day, rinse it out and you’ll notice that the drain will get rid of everything!
