Some Natural And De-Clog Chemicals For Sinks And Drains


Even though the chemical cleaners may look like the magical solution for your clogged sink or drain, they are caustic and toxic so there is always a danger for you to get burnt or poisoned. They may also lead to pipe corrosion, especially between the street sewer and house. At the same time, the dry chemicals efficiency is limited, and you may still end up having to disassemble the plumbing trap and unclog it mechanically while it has been already filled of dissolved chemical.

Some precautions could be taken such as not pouring a second portion while waiting for the first one effect, and telling the plumber who would come next about the chemical used. However, the best way to prevent any harm caused by the dry chemical, is to avoid using it. You can either apply the plumbing snake or plunger technique first, or use some simple natural substances such as boiling water, baking soda, and vinegar. Moreover, the latter are harmless, really cheap, everybody has at home, and are pretty efficient.

Just pouring slowly boiling water down the drain is the quickest and easiest way to for dealing with light clogs. Do it in two or three stages to allow the hot water make its wonder for a few seconds meanwhile.

You can pour them consequently in equal proportion or 2:1 in favour of soda. Alternatively, mix them in a measuring cup in proportion by a third cup of each. The fizz and foam will show the reaction is going on, and the combination is able to remove any hair, gunk and grime from the pipe. Immediately apply it into the drain, and flush tap hot water.

A chemical reaction by a combination of salt, baking soda, and boiling water is capable of dealihg with the really nasty clogs. Mix by half cup of table salt and baking soda. Pour the combination down the drain, and let it work for twenty minutes. Pour down boiling water.

It is a recipe for unclogging a bath drain. Mix baking soda and vinegar in a measuring cup in proportion by a third cup of each. Apply it into the drain, and put the stopper over. After about an hour fill the bathtub, and remove the stopper. The pressure by the water will displace the blockage. You could help it through plunging or by applying the drain snake.

Sodium Hydroxide or caustic soda can be purchased from the store, but it is a dangerous chemical, which is toxic, and may cause burns. Be very careful, and always use it with some eye protection and rubber gloves. Mix about 3 liters of cold water and three cups caustic soda in a mop bucket. Take an wooden spoon, and stir well, while it is fizzing and heating up. Put it into the drain, and wait for about half an hour. Pour boiling water into the drain. If necessary, repeat.

You may employ a bottle of bleach for unclogging sinks or toilets. Pour it in the drain water, and wait for a few hours. Flush hot water for a while. As a prevention, you can do the same once in three months using half a bottle of bleach and hot water.

Quarter a cup of dish detergent in the bowl to break up any grease. Pour boiling water down, and plunge. If it does not work, do it by hand covered helped by rubber gloves.

Remember, use the less harmful first. Soda, vinegar, salt, and boiled water are really efficient de-cloggers.
