Homemade Drain Cleaner Recipe

If you have been standing ankle deep in dirty shower water lately or your bathroom sink has been filling up with slime water every time you brush your teeth, then chances are you’ve got a clogged drain.

Store bought drain cleaners are very powerful, but can also be very expensive. Not only do they eat away the stuff that is clogging your drains, but they can eat away your wallet too. So, before you head out for the hard stuff, try this natural homemade drain cleaner first. It works great on smelly sink drains too!



What You’ll Need

1/2 cup baking soda

1/2 cup sea salt

1 cup vinegar

Boiling Water


Mix It Up

Step 1 – Pour baking soda and sea salt into a bowl and mix well using a fork.

Step 2 – Pour the baking soda and sea salt mixture down the clogged drain.

Step 3 – Pour vinegar  down the drain. (Stand back and be amazed by the foaming action.)

Step 4 – Let sit for about 30 minutes.

Step 5 – Slowly pour a kettle full of boiling water down the drain.


Now, your drain should be unclogged. If you find your drain is still clogged, make another batch of the recipe and repeat each step. Using this recipe once a month will keep your drains smelling fresh and also help to prevent future clogs.
