Have you ever looked at the drain trap in your bathroom? Ever wondered how much mold is growing in your drains? Ever had to unclog your bathroom sink drain from hair and who know what else has fallen down your drain? Do you hate the chemicals that you and your family are inhaling when you have to use the store bought drain cleaner? Well here’s a simple, safe, chemical free and fun way to clean your drains!
All you need are two simple ingredients – Baking Soda (you maybe able to find this product cheaper at Sam’s Club) and White Vinegar ( You maybe able to find this cheaper at Sam’s Club). That’s it! It’s simple and takes about a minute to do. Pour baking soda around the drain of your bathroom sink. It’s fine if some of it goes down the drain, it will provide a deeper clean. Slowly pour some white vinegar on the baking soda and watch the magic happen. My kids love to help with making the “volcano”! The faster your pour the vinegar the faster the reaction happens.
I usually do this twice a year, unless I notice a smell, mold or my girls drain start to slow down. I use 1/8 of a cup of baking soda each time I clean the drain. You will be able to tell if you need more or not. Play around with how much you use. You will be able to tell if it’s all-clean and disinfected if the chemical reaction is less.
After you’ve cleaned your bathroom sink with baking soda and vinegar, your sink will be clear of clogs, mold and any other bacteria that grows in your drain.
