Life seemed a lot easier when I had short hair.
In August 2014, I chopped more than 11 inches off my hair. It definitely took some getting used to. And one of things I noticed when cleaning — especially the bathroom — was the lack of long hair lining the bathroom counter and floor.
Today, my hair is past my shoulders again, and I’ve noticed my hair is not only making my counter messy but also clogging my bathroom drains. So yesterday, instead of running to the store to buy some Draino for the bathroom sink, I simply walked into my kitchen and grabbed two items almost everyone keeps in their cupboards — baking soda and white vinegar.
I wouldn’t recommend this remedy for a really tough drain clog, but it works great when you first notice the drain slowing down.
- Baking soda
- White vinegar
- Boiling water
1. Pour baking soda over drain. I never measure it out; I just pour until the drain is completely covered.
Slowly pour the vinegar over the baking soda. It will start foaming up. Keep pouring slowly until all the baking soda is dissolved.
2. Let sit for a few minutes.
3. Take boiling water and pour it down the drain. You should see results immediately.
