Simple Yet Effective Homemade Drain Cleaners to Try

person pouring drain cleaner down the drain Akron, OH

While there are many commercial cleaners to address a clogged drain, they often contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to you and the environment. Fortunately, you can use many natural and non-toxic household items to make simple and effective drain cleaners, which C. Lee Services shares below:

1. Boiling Water

Boil water and run it down the drain in a slow, steady stream. Repeat this until the drain is clear.

2. Baking Soda and Vinegar

Mixing baking soda and vinegar results in a chemical reaction, which produces carbon dioxide gas and creates a foaming action that helps to dislodge and break up the clog. The baking soda also helps to neutralize any unpleasant odors that may be coming from the drain.

3. Dish Soap and Hot Water

To use dish soap and hot water for drain cleaning in Akron, OH, pour a few tablespoons of soap down the drain, followed by a pot of boiling water. Run lukewarm water to flush out any remaining debris.

4. Baking Soda and Lemon Juice

Squeeze one lemon and mix it with a cup of baking soda, then pour it down the drain. Then, pour lukewarm water to flush it out.
