Homemade Drano


I have lots of hair.  It’s not secret.  Hair is notorious for clogging drains.  When this happens, I breakdown and buy toxic chemicals that you can smell through the entire house in order to break it up.  Recently, I decided, I’m going to try to do it naturally and see what happens.  The worst that can happen is that it doesn’t work and I have to go get Drano anyway.

Verdict is in.  It was cheap and it worked!


Get the drain cover off and pull out anything that may be obstructing the drain at the top.  Pour lots of baking soda down the drain.  Pour vinegar down the drain (use something cheap.  No need for good vinegar here).  It will bubble up on you.  Use something to cover the drain in order to contain the reaction down the tube.  Lift the covering object up and pour more.  Cover again.  Do this until it doesn’t bubble anymore.  Let it sit for 10 minutes and rinse the drain with warm water.  Put the drain cover back on.  Boom.
