The simple things that make me happy. We’ve been having problems with our garbage disposal clogging up. It was just replaced and the water still was going down real slow.
I had read a long time ago that baking soda and vinegar would clear it up and I tried it the last time we had a clogged kitchen drain. It had worked when I used baking soda and vinegar so I thought it would again. But, it didn’t. And I found that using baking soda and vinegar is just a myth and that it only creates more sludge in the drains. I wanted to avoid getting the chemical stuff like Drano and did a search online to see if I could find other ways to unclog a drain. I found a site that recommended using a plunger (while plugging up the other sink if you have a double sink) so I made a trip to the store and got a plunger to keep for the kitchen sink.
I enlisted the help of my hubby to plunge the sink as I didn’t have the strength needed to force the clog to unclog. After a minute of plunging, it worked! Such a dumb thing to get excited over but it did.
So if you get a clogged drain, don’t use baking soda and vinegar, but do use a clean plunger!
