Here’s how to make a cleaning solution out of baking soda and vinegar. Oh, by the way, you can replace vinegar with lemon juice in case you run out of the former.
1/4 to1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 to 1 cup vinegar (balsamic, apple cider, or white distilled)
1/2 to 1 gallon of boiling water
1. Find a stick or wear a pair of rubber gloves, and remove any stuff around the outer part of the drain.
2. Pour baking soda first down the drain.
3. Pour half of the vinegar, and immediately cover the drain.
4. Pour the rest of the vinegar and cover again.
5. Let the liquids work on their own, so keep the drain covered for at least 15 minutes.
6. Boil water, and once boiling, uncover the drain, and pour the water down the drain slowly and easy.
