Green clean for drains August 14, 2007

Filed under: alternative, cleaning — terra @ 3:40 pm

Here’s a good way to clean your drains – as a preventative measure, or if they’re clogged. We tried it last night and it really works!!

1/2 cup baking soda
1-2 cups cheap household vinegar

Pour the baking soda down the drain, followed by the vinegar. Put a plug in the drain and fill the sink with water. Wait a few minutes, then pull the plug and let the water push everything down the drain, cleaning as it goes. Awesome! -Heloise

(more on the magic of vinegar later)

    I am for sure doing this. Every so often I take apart all the pipes under the sink and clean them out. That is the grossest ever but I sure feel betting knowing what is not there anymore.
    love my Terra,
