Next time you have a stubborn drain clog try this home remedy:

•Pour a pot of very hot water down the drain
•Dump in about a 1/2 cup of baking soda and let it sit for a few minutes
•Then pour a mixture of 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of very hot water down on top of the baking soda
•Cover the drain with a plug and let it sit for 5-10 minutes
•Flush once more with another pot of very hot water

Why it works:
The baking soda and hot water treatment will loosen up any grimy sludge that's hanging out at the bottom of your drain, and the explosive chemical reaction with the vinegar will jolt it all loose. Then, one final super hot water rinse will make all the bad stuff go away!
