Homemade Drain Cleaner

Over the years we’ve spent a small fortune on drain cleaner products. I had no idea it was so easy to make homemade drain cleaner or that it worked so well.

Homemade Drain Cleaner Recipe

  • 1 box of baking soda
  • vinegar

Get a small box of baking soda and pour about half of it down the clogged drain. Top it off with just enough vinegar to really get it foaming.

Wait for the foam to settle, then repeat with the other half of the baking soda, followed again by vinegar.

Let the mixture sit in your drain for at least an hour, longer if you can, then rinse it with plenty of hot water.

    I do this once a week and I have the fastest running drains that I have seen. Plus my five year old likes to help me make the volcano. LOL

    This mixture will also take the place of products like Rid-x for your septic system. If you use it in all of your drains and your toilet, it will break down the solids just like those expensive toxic products.

    It works good on helping to maintain clear drains. However, should it not help a clogged drain, call a professional to auger/snake the drain. Do Not use the caustic acid drain cleaners as they can cause damage to your pipes and to the enviroment. As to taking the place of RidX it doesn’t. Rid X and similar products are bacterial enzymes that help by breaking down the solids and papers in your septic tank. These products are safe for you and the enviroment. Even better is to maintain your septic tank by regular routine cleaning of the tank. Usually every 3-5yrs. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. This advice is coming from a Roto Rooter employee for 12 years.
