How to unclog a sink drain naturally

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi. I'm Julie Edelman, the accidental housewife, here on howdini.com, and today we're going to do a little science experiment which I call-- or I should say, my son calls-- Mt. Saint Helen's. And it's a great way to unclog your sinks from all of that hair, all of those contacts that I throw down there, or anything else that'll go it's way. Very simple to do. All you need are three things. Baking soda, white vinegar, and while you're boiling up a cup of tea for yourself, boil up some extra water, because you're going to need that, too. All right. Let's get going. Very simple. You take half a cup of the baking soda, you pour it down. Now, if you have a stopper that you can remove, terrific. This one you can't, so you pour it down as best you can. Then you're going to follow it with a half a cup of good old white vinegar. And this is where the Mt. Saint Helen's gets really fun. Watch what happens. Look at that! Isn't that cool? I love it, too. I'm like a little kid when I do this. So you're going to let it continue to bubble. When it's all done, what you're then going to do is take that pot or kettle of boiling water. Pour it down. It'll continue to fizz a little, and then you'll see a little bit of debris coming up. All that yuck that you've thrown down there. So there you have it. I'm Julie Edelman, the Accidental Housewife here on how howdini.com, helping you unclog your sink. And if it doesn't work, pour yourself that cup of tea with the extra water, and call your plumber, pronto. [MUSIC PLAYING]
