This is the Easiest Way to Unclog Your Drain in 3 Steps

You probably have these ingredients lying around the house.

Too often we leave our shower drains untouched. It isn't until we notice slow drainage that we decide to take action, and by then, it can even be too late. Instead of waiting until it's too late and getting stuck using harmful chemicals, we've found the perfect solution for you: We found an amazing, two-ingredient drain cleaner that attacks the toughest of clogs without the use of harsh chemicals. And it's eco-friendly! YouTube user SweetPotatoPatterns demonstrates how to unclog your drain using everyday ingredients in a video everyone should watch. Here's how she does it:


First, sprinkle baking soda in your bathtub drain. Remove the plug first, if necessary.


Next, pour white vinegar down the drain. As the liquid hits the baking soda, you'll see it start to bubble and fizz. That means it's working!


Flush the drain with hot tap water and rinse away all the debris that the baking soda broke down.

The next time you turn on your water, your drain will work just like new. No more standing water in the shower for your family! Check out the video from SweetPotatoPatterns below for more important instructions on how to beat that stubborn bathtub clog and how to prevent future clogs from forming.
