Make Your Own - Natural Drain Cleaner

Natural Drain Cleaner by Conscious by Chloé

Drain Cleaner


  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 gallon of boiling water



  1. Pour a pot of boiling water down your drain.
  2. Pour 1/2 cup baking soda into your drain. Be sure that it all goes down. You can use your fingers or a long tool such as a chopstick to help.
  3. Pour 1/2 cup white vinegar into the drain and cover immediately with a stopper or a rag in order to keep the bubbles in the drain.
  4. Wait for 2 minutes.
  5. Pour the second 1/2 cup of white vinegar down the drain and, like in step 2, cover.
  6. Wait for 15-30 minutes, no more.
  7. Uncover and pour another pot of boiling water down the drain.


Repeat, depending on how clogged the drain is. Clean your drains regularly with this recipe to prevent build-up.

This recipe was inspired by Lauren Singer's of Trash is for Tossers. And here's the complete Natural Cleaning Products Guide.
