Three ingredients to unclog your drain!
  • 8 cups of boiling water

Also, I recommend chopsticks or something of the sort, to poke the drain with. That's all you need! Now for the steps...

First things first, boil 8 cups of water. I used a measuring cup and poured the water into my tea kettle. I recommend using a kettle because it will be much easier to pour the water.

Once the water boils, pour 7 cups of the boiling water down the clogged drain. I poured the water from the kettle, into the measuring cup, down the drain.

Next, pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain. This is where the chop sticks come in handy. The baking soda needed a little extra push down. Don't worry if it doesn't all go down, the next step will take care of that!

Now, pour 1 cup of white vinegar down the drain. (Cue fun sizzle effect.)

Then pour the remaining 1 cup of hot water.

All done! An easy chemical free way to clean your clogged drain! Not to mention it makes the sink sparkle.
