Clearing blocked drains naturally and cheaply

Dealing with a clogged sink can be frustrating, but before you call a plumber or reach for chemical drain cleaners, consider a more natural and cost-effective method. Over the counter drainage uncloggers or filled with forever chemicals (PFAS) that are just nasty.

Unclogging your sink using common household items like baking soda, vinegar, and hot water is not only eco-friendly but also gentle on your plumbing.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to clearing your drain without harsh chemicals

Here’s the sweet part – you may already have two of the required items gathering dust in your pantry. Our method will require a little more work than those expensive over-the counter branded uncloggers (which sometimes won’t work much better).

Necessary Items:

  • Baking soda (or baking powder)
  • Pure white vinegar
  • Boiling hot water (use with caution!)


  1. Prepare the Drain: Begin by clearing any standing water from the sink. Pour a generous amount of baking soda directly into the drain. Ensure that you do not block the drain opening completely; the pathway should allow liquids to flow freely to enable a reaction with the vinegar.
  2. Chemical Reaction: Slowly pour white vinegar into the drain over the baking soda. The combination of vinegar and baking soda will create a fizzy chemical reaction that helps to break down the gunk and grime clogging the drain. Allow this mixture to work its magic for about 20 minutes. This natural reaction is safe for your pipes and the environment.
  3. Boiling Water: After the reaction has had time to work, boil about a gallon of water. Once ready, carefully pour the boiling water down the drain. The heat will help to dissolve any remaining residue loosened by the baking soda and vinegar reaction. Pour slowly to prevent splashing and ensure it mixes well with the existing solution in the drain.
  4. Final Rinse: Finish by flushing the drain with cool water from the tap or poured from a bucket. This helps to clear out any remaining debris and tests the effectiveness of the unclogging process. If the water flows freely, your drain is clear!
