2 Simple Solutions to Clean Your Drains
Do you feel like you’ve tried every drain cleaner at the supermarket to unclog your bathroom sink drain? It’s easy to believe that this is the only way to fix the problem.
But the fact is, off-the-shelf drain cleaners can be more harmful than you might think. These types of cleaners can corrode your pipes and even cause cracks or leaks.
In this article, we’ll walk you through 2 better solutions for cleaning your drains, so you can avoid a broken pipe leaking all over your floor.
Start with a Mixture of Common Kitchen Ingredients
This recipe can be made with household items and is much safer than supermarket solutions.
- 1 cup of baking soda down your drain, followed by
- 1 cup of vinegar
- Plug or cover the drain for 20 minutes or until the bubbles die down
- Flush the drain with 4-6 cups of boiling water
Just like a 3rd grade volcano science project, the baking soda and vinegar will react and bubble. This is a simple, environmentally friendly way to clear your drain,without damaging your pipes, and can be repeated multiple times if needed.
Need Something Stronger? BioOne to the Rescue
The best and safest drain cleaning product is called BioOne. It’s perfect because it eats away at stubborn clogs better than anything else and doesn’t harm your pipes.
Chemical cleaners run down your drain and carve a channel along the bottom of your pipes. BioOne, on the other hand, uses natural bacteria that attacks hair, grease and buildups in your drain and thoroughly clears them, while leaving your pipes alone.
We highly recommend BioOne or products like this to clear clogs and keep your drains clean long term.
