Cleaning A Clogged Drain

These ideas may or may not work for a really badly clogged drain, depending on what's clogging it, but it's worth a try.


Mix 1 cup salt, 1 cup baking soda, and 1/4 cup cream of tartar. Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture in the drain and add 1 quart of warm water. Keep extra mixture in an airtight container for regular cleaning maintenance to help keep the drains from clogging in the first place.

The other idea is to drop three Alka Seltzer tablets down the drain followed by a cup of distilled white vinegar.
