Keeping the drains in your house running well should be a pretty high priority, Captain, natural drain cleaners are the key!
I don’t like to wait until I have a clog in my pipes before treating them, giving the pipes in your home continuous attention will go a long way in preventing problems in the future!
Natural Drain Cleaners
Here are a few of my fave ways to keep the pipes in my home flowing without issues and avoiding using a lot of chemicals at the same time!
- The very best thing you can do is to run hot water down the drains every single time you use them, especially in the kitchen. Hot water will help keep everything moving until it is out of your plumbing system
- Once a week I will throw a handful of baking soda down each drain and run hot water behind it. Baking soda is an amazing all natural cleaner and will do a lot to keep your pipes clean.
- Once a month put 1 cup of white vinegar down each drain, wait 30 minutes, then run lots of hot water. Vinegar does a great job breaking down what could cause problems in the future.
- If you do happen to have a slow drain here is a handy way to get that water moving quicker! In the evening before bed pour 1/2 c baking soda and 1/2 c salt down the drain, then follow it with 1/2 c white vinegar – allow that to soak overnight. In the morning run lots of hot water to flush the debris away.
