The next time you're thinking about spending money buying clog-cleaning
chemicals at the supermarket, consider picking up a bottle of
inexpensive bottle of white vinegar instead:
The thing about using harsh chemical drain unclogging solutions is that they're usually quite abrasive, and can sometimes make your pipes leak after the clog is dissolved.
The trick here is to pour half bottle of white vinegar down your drain every three months to prevent clogs from forming. Once it's down the drain, let it sit for 10 minutes before flushing with hot water. You can also add a quartered lemon, lime, or other small citrus fruit to give your drain a fresh scent.
