   DIY Natural and Effective Drain Cleaners
 

I have two drains that tend to clog more often in my house, the tub and the laundry sink. The tub drain gets clogged with hair and body care products. My washing machine drains via a plastic pipe into a laundry sink so fibers and lint build up in the drain.Now, for a dose of reality, no one is perfect. We have a lazy moment, or the kids are washing the dishes and aren’t paying attention, or we get too busy to notice all that hair in the tub.DIY Natural and Effective Drain Cleaners will be comming Sooner or later, you’ll end of with a clogged drain.


Before you try a DIY drain cleaner.It’s best to remember to use your steam cleaners  routinely before the clogs happen. When you are trying a DIY drain cleaner, it will likely take longer than a commercial drain cleaner. You also may need to repeat your efforts more than once. Many DIY drain cleaners will take up to an hour to work.


Boiling water
Most clogs develop due to various types of fats and oils that get cold in the pipe (think bacon grease) and solidify. Sometimes just using a kettle of boiling water will clear the clog. Boiling water can also be used with the above mixtures. However, take care to pour directly into the drain to avoid damaging plastics or cracking porcelain.


Baking soda with lemon juice
Lemon juice (one cup) is a little more costly than cider vinegar, but it smells a lot better and works just as well as vinegar. You may want to use this mixture in your kitchen sink simply for the better smell. Again run plenty of hot water after the baking soda and lemon juice foam up for a few minutes.


Baking soda, the top DIY drain cleaner
The most commonly used DIY drain cleaner is using one cup of baking soda and one cup of cider vinegar floor cleaner. The intense foaming action, followed by running plenty of hot water, is good routine maintenance. I have to admit I was surprised the first time I saw the drain pop open after trying this. The tub drain was still pretty slow, so I repeated the method.


Salt, borax, and vinegar
I found this formula, 1/4 C. salt, 1/4 C. Borax, and 1/2 C. vinegar, on Sage & Simple. I tried the mixture (followed by plenty of hot water) in my laundry sink and found that it took a while, but did clear the drain.


The problem with commercial drain cleaners is they corrode pipes, are bad for septic systems, are toxic to ground water, and they can damage the materials that your sink or tub are made of. I recently had to change the drain and fixtures on my bathroom sink due to corrosion from commercial cleaners. After that experience, I decided to try non-toxic and far less corrosive methods for clearing pipes.


Just like in the Heimlich maneuver, look first to see if you can actually see the clog. It’s not a fun task, but put vacuum cleaner  on your rubber gloves and dig the hair and goop out first. You may also want to try plunging the drain and running hot water alternately a couple of times. If the clog is minor, that may be all you need to do.
