My bathroom sink has been clogged for a couple of weeks now, filling fast and draining slowly. It has made it hard to brush my teeth, wash my face, you name it. I am assuming it has been clogged with hair and/or hair product, soap scum, and who knows what.
It's gross, I know. I am embarrassed and icked out, but the reason I am telling you about this is to share with you the Fastest Easiest Best remedy in case you ever find yourself in my position.
There are numerous sites online that recommend the following recipe, and having finally just tried it mere moments ago myself, I can verify that it really works!
- Pour 1/2 cup baking soda into your clogged drain.
- After about 30 seconds or so, slowly pour 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar down the drain on top of the baking soda. (It will fizz and bubble--this is normal).
- Wait a few minutes and then slowly pour boiling water down the drain on top of the soda and vinegar mixture. (I filled my plug-in tea kettle with water and by the time it boiled, it was time to pour the water in).
