Homemade Drain Cleaner Recipes

Drain Cleaner Recipe 1

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • Boiling water

Pour baking soda down the drain. Add white vinegar and cover the drain, if possible. Let set for 5 minutes. Then pour a kettle of boiling water down the drain. (The vinegar and baking soda break down fatty acids into soap and glycerine, allowing the clog to wash down the drain.) Do not use this method if you have used a commercial drain opener and it may still be present in the drain.

Drain Opener

Use a plunger (plumber’s helper). It may take a number of plunges to unclog the drain. Do not use this method if you have used a commercial drain opener and it may still be present in the drain.

Drain Cleaner Recipe 2

Use a flexible metal snake. The mechanical snake may be purchased or rented. Thread it down the clogged drain, and you will be able to push the clog away.

Drain Cleaner Recipe 3

  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/8 cup cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 6 cups boiling water

Mix salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar and pour directly into the drain. Follow with boiling water. Allow to set for several hours – overnight if possible. Flush with cool water.
