How to Make Your Own Drain Cleaner

Tips to Help You Prepare a Homemade Drain Cleaning Solution for Emergency Cases

Clogged drains or toilets in your home or office can become a real disaster it you do not address the problem immediately. Plungers and commercial detergents do not always work. Sometimes you may need the help of a professional drain cleaning team.

  • You will need measuring spoons, two teacups of boiling water, and sealable container.

  • This is what you have to do: boil some water ( do it either in an electric mug, or in the microwave for faster results). Meanwhile, pour the following things in a cup, 1 tablespoon of baking soda plus 1 tablespoon of salt. Add 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar. Mix the dry “solution” well until it becomes homogene. Then pour it in your toilet. After a minute pour the two teacups of boiling water you have prepared. It will be great if you don’t have to flush the water in your toilet over the next 30 minutes, so the solution can work. However, in case one of your guests has to use the restroom, make up an excuse. For example, if you have pets, you can say that there was a small accident in the bathroom floor from your pet. Once you excuse yourself from the situation, you can show him or her to your master bedroom.

  • Additional tips: The proportions mixed in this recipe should be enough to unclog a toilet or drain, but in case the problem is a heavy-duty one you can mix one more portion and try again in an hour. If you want to maintain your drains in a clean condition, you can also apply this “cleaning method” once in a few months. If you have some mixture from the last unclogging that you did not get the chance to use, you can store it for some other time. If you want to store the left overs from the last time, you can do so, but keep in mind that it must be in a dry place.
