Between me and my daughter our hair clogs the bathtub every couple of weeks. If I catch it early I usually can use my plunger to loosen things up and everything is fine, but every couple of months I need to get it unclogged by my buildings handyman who has a snake. Today I decided to see if there was a way I could unclog my tub with items I already have in my apartment. I found out that if I take a cup of salt, a cup of baking soda and boiling water it not only will unclog my drain but it will also take away any odor it may have. I have salt, I have baking soda, and I have a kettle. I figured what the heck, I’ll try it. I poured the salt first then the baking soda, and then I started pouring the boiling water, it started working immediately. I am so excited that I discovered this because that means I will never have a clogged tub again. I plan to do this at least once a week to keep my drain clear and odor free.
- 1 cup of salt
- 1 cup of baking soda
- boiling water (I used a full kettle)
- pour salt followed by the baking soda, then pour in the water.
