“Baking soda has sodium bicarbonate that reacts in an explosive effervescent manner when it comes in contact with vinegar. The bubbles help in loosening up any grimy sludge that is clogging the drain. Once you add hot water to the mix, any fat and other debris responsible for the clogging gets washed away, thus clearing the drain.”

“It’s never fun to unclog bathroom drains… My bathtub was semi-clogged recently. I hate having sloshing water at my feet when I am in the shower. (Who does?)

“Hair and goo can build inside your sink causing your drains to empty slowly, giving you something else to contend with during your bathroom cleaning ritual. Drop a couple of alka seltzer tablets into a slow drain and follow with a vinegar chaser. After a few minutes, rinse with hot water. Your drain will be as good as new.”
