No chemicals or vinegar: how to clean a clogged drain in the kitchen and bathtub with the home method

Ordinary hydrogen peroxide cleans pipes safely and effectively

Every bathroom or kitchen sink gets clogged from time to time. Hair, pet hair, soap suds, small particles - all this accumulates in the drain and periodically needs to be cleaned.

Usually, quite aggressive alkaline products are used for this task, which can hardly be called environmentally friendly. Another common option is to combine baking soda with vinegar. However, as OBOZREVATEL has learned, there is another method that requires a liquid that is available in almost every home.

We are talking about hydrogen peroxide. To flush a blockage with it, first remove all the dirt you can from the drain. Next, dilute a full glass of peroxide (250 ml) in a liter of cold water and pour the mixture down the drain. Leave it to act for 30 minutes.

After this time, flush the pipe with hot water. It should not be boiling water - it can damage and deform plastic pipes, but still take water of a sufficiently high temperature. 2-3 liters will be enough for flushing.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL told you how to properly wash greasy pans and pots so as not to clog the pipes.
