Natural Cleaning Tip - Unclog Drains with Baking Soda and Vinegar

Oh baking soda and vinegar…my match made in heaven, the dynamic duo…man these two ingredients really pack a punch when put together!  I want to show you how easy it is to unclog your drains with baking soda and vinegar … yep, another natural cleaning trick!  And a cheap one at that!

How to unclog your drain naturally To finish, run hot tap water down the drain for about 30 seconds to a minute.  This should get rid of any of that gunky black sludge that has built up in your drains…yuck!  That being said, this method isn’t going to unclog every drain every time.  If you have some major blockage, you may need to try another method.
