Einleitung

Both kitchen and bathroom drains get used often and clogged fast. But did you know that it’s possible to clear a clogged sink without using harsh chemicals? Just a few everyday household items and hot water work just as well as chemicals. Taking precautions to prevent burning hands and arms from boiling water and the stovetop is essential, so use potholders and work slowly and carefully. The prep time to create the mix of baking soda and vinegar is fast and easy to clean up. If vinegar isn’t available, lemon juice is a great substitute.
