DIY- Unclogging a Sink

Got a sink that is clogged? Before you call a plumber you might want to try this really simple way to unclog your sink. My sink was clogged recently and I wasn't in the mood to go out and buy unnecessary products that will just make it worst than before. So, I did some research and all I needed was two inexpensive items.....

                                                                         Baking Soda


Yeap! that's it

1/4 cup baking soda
1 cup vinegar

-Remove contents from sink
-Pour baking soda and vinegar down the drain
-Cover drain with a lid for about 15 minutes
-The baking soda and vinegar will have a chemical reaction breaking down the clog
-While you are waiting have a pot of water boiling so that you can rinse it down the drain to clear out
-Repeat if necessary


  1. My wife uses that baking soda and vinegar solution! I really admire her for doing a great job in household chores. And I don’t think there’s anyone who can measure up to her efforts in maintaining everything in order. :D Kidding aside, I’m glad that you shared this to show to everyone that you don’t have to go too far in order to keep your house clean and orderly.

  2. Thank you! I'm glad to share and thanks for stopping by

  3. Just like what Darryl has mentioned, this solution works every time. What I do is I add a little dishwashing liquid to the solution to counter the pungent vinegar smell. This solution is a relief to a lot of people who have clogged sink. If clogging is a recurring issue, then it's best to consult a professional to aid you with the matter.
