Success! Made my own drain cleaner/ clog remover and it worked awesome!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

so since we moved into our new apartment last month our tub has sucked at draining. Today it stopped all together. I didn't have money for drano so I did some looking online and found a super easy super cheap fix!

Baking soda, with vinegar. Pour the soda down the drain, add the vinegar cover quickly (with drain plug or a bowl) and sit for 10-15 minutes. Then pour boiling water down the drain.

Fixed it instantly!!! I can see tons of clear pvc pipe when I sign a flashlight and couldn't before and it drains all loud and super fast like bran new!

I'm so proud of myself. DH said it would never work and that I'd blow the house up lol

I do this as drain maintenance monthly. its a cheap fix and doesnt harm your pipes either. If you do it often it helps prevent clogs.
