How to get rid of unpleasant odor from the sewer: you will need one ingredient
Even regular surface cleaning of the sink cannot prevent an unpleasant odor from the sewer due to high humidity, hard water, and the inability to clean the pipes properly.
Sometimes, even chemical cleaners do not eliminate the unpleasant odor. The Sante Plus publication shared an interesting life hack that will effectively clean sewer pipes.
How to Get Rid of an Unpleasant Odor from the Sewer
White vinegar is the best solution for this problem. It works effectively on lime deposits, and acetic acid eliminates plaque, the main cause of the unpleasant odor.
To enhance its effect, pour 3 tablespoons of baking soda into 2 liters of hot water, then pour the solution down the sink drain. Wait for a while and add 2 cups of white vinegar to the drain. It is advisable to leave the solution to act overnight to ensure the complete disappearance of the stench.
Baking soda is a mandatory ingredient.
Close the drain pipe and let hot water run down the sink until it is several inches full. Add dishwashing detergent and mix to create soapy, foamy water for treating the sewer.
Citric acid is an ideal odor neutralizer. Experts recommend mixing lemon with baking soda. Use a large glass to extract about 300 ml of lemon juice, add a few tablespoons of baking soda, and mix thoroughly. Slowly pour the solution down the drain. Allow the mixture to work and soak in for at least an hour, then flush with hot water afterward.
You can add salt - its abrasive power increases the effect of baking soda on limescale tenfold.
The recipe is very simple: mix salt and baking soda in equal parts and pour the mixture down the sink drain. After a few hours, drain the hot water.
