Everyone hates a clogged drain, but before you reach for the store-bought drain cleaner, consider trying a more natural alternative. Luckily, Ecofriend posted a home remedy for unclogging a drain, and it’s ridiculously simple. All you’ll need to clear your drain is one cup of baking soda, one cup of table salt, one cup of white vinegar, and some boiling water.

How to Use a Natural, Homemade Drain Cleaner

Ready to clear your drain? Great, it’ll only take you a couple of minutes and two steps! See, we told you it was easy.

  1. First, make sure there is no water in the sink. Pour one cup of baking soda followed by one cup of table salt, and then pour a cup of white vinegar.
  2. Wait for ten minutes and then flush it with boiling water. After that, the drain should be clear!

    Ecofriend does have a disclaimer that if the problem persists after this at-home method, you should call a plumber.
