How to unblock clogged drains quickly and cheaply

Clogged drains in the bathroom and kitchen are a common problem that can lead to unpleasant odors and even breakdowns of household appliances. Aggressive chemicals can't always cope with this, but on the contrary, they damage the surface.

OBOZ.UA has found effective life hacks that will effectively clean the pipes without extra costs. You don't have to call a professional, you can do it yourself with affordable and safe ingredients.

Baking soda and white vinegar

The combination of these ingredients creates a chemical reaction that will quickly unclog clogged drains. Thanks to its alkaline properties, baking soda dissolves grease and dirt easily. Pour half a cup of baking soda into the sink and cover with one cup of vinegar. Cover the hole with a cloth to "hold" the ingredients in the pipe. Leave it for 15-30 minutes.

Then remove the cloth and rinse everything with hot water to clean off any remaining dirt.

Washing powder

Laundry detergent contains substances that will not only clean clothes from dirt, but can also soften grease in pipes. Boil water in a saucepan and add two to three tablespoons of powder. The hot liquid "activates" the cleaning agent. Turn off the stove and leave the solution for 20-30 minutes. Then pour the mixture into the sink.

Clothes rack

You can use a metal clothes hanger to pull debris out of the pipes yourself. To do this, unwind the hanger to form a hook at one end. Insert it into the hole and gently "hook" the debris blocking the drain. Repeat the steps until the pipe is free of dirt. Then rinse everything with hot water.
