How To Unclog Bathtub Drain With Household Products?
Yep. That’s what I am here to talk about today.
I know I am usually sharing makeovers and DIY projects, but I am also passionate about cleaning and organizing and finding ways to do household chores easily. When I can figure out a way to do something with products I always have on hand, it is like winning the lottery! I get just as excited about these little hacks as I do a beautiful furniture makeover or room reveal.
Our bathtub was not draining efficiently last week. Water was collecting in the tub when we would take a shower. Instead of heading out to get liquid plumbing stuff, we wanted to try to do it with pantry staples we already had on hand. I use vinegar and baking soda to clean all kinds of things and the reaction they give when they are mixed together is perfect for unclogging a bathtub drain.
Ingredients: How To Unclog Bathtub Drain:
1/2 c. baking soda
1/2 c. vinegar
First, I removed the stopper from the drain. I cleaned it really well with vinegar and baking soda and then pulled out any hair I could see in the drain (okay, let’s be honest… Matt did this part.)
Next, I mixed the vinegar and baking soda together.
I watched it react the way it does and then poured it down the bathtub drain.
I waited 10 minutes for it to work its magic.
After 10 minutes, I filled the tea kettle with water and waited for it to boil.
I poured the water down the bathtub drain.
There is no more water collecting in the tub when we shower! I was so happy about this working that I couldn’t wait to share it all with you here.
What is your favorite cleaning tip or trick? I love hearing about hacks that actually work so please share them with us in the comments.
