    Default Unclogging your shower drain

    Step 1 - Put the DRY baking soda down the drain. I use about 3/4 of a cup.

    Step 2 - Pour 1/2 cup of vinegar down the drain after the baking soda. Be sure to cover the drain immediately afterwards with a rag or plug, filling the hole completely so nothing can escape. This is because the interaction of the two will cause a “mini volcano” that will want to come up and out of the drain..you want to keep it down there.

    Step 3 - Leave this concoction in the drain for about 30 minutes. While you are waiting, boil a tea kettle full of water.

    Step 4 - After 30 minutes, remove the plug and slowly pour the HOT water down the drain.

    All done! Your drain should flow smoothly now. If not, just do it again. We normally have to do our tub drain often because of my long hair, but it cleans it out every time.

    Wow, I had heard of that before but wasnt sure it worked. I have been looking for a non toxic way to clean out our drains. We have kitties that like to lay in the tub and sink and I hate to even think of a caustic chemical getting on the little patty paws.
