home remedy that won’t kill fish.

The glamor-factor of this blog, if there ever was one, has plummeted. I’m going from talking about Coco Chanel to drains (Al Gore would approve, yes?). Skip this if you prefer killing fish with Drano, I mean… if your kitchen sink has never been clogged because you always clean plates properly. Also, this remedy involves the always-thrilling volcano effect that happens when you combine vinegar and baking soda. The sight of this is as satisfying as popping bubble wrap.

White gold... Baking Soda.

White gold... Baking Soda.

My kitchen sink is now all fixed thanks to the following:

1/2 cup baking soda
1 cup vinegar
1 gallon boiling water

Carefully siphon all the baking soda down the drain. Pour in 1/2 of the vinegar, and watch it fizz, reminiscent of those elementary school science projects. Once the ‘explosion’ (ew) has subsided, add the second half of the vinegar, following the same procedure. Allow to sit for 15 minutes or so, and then flush with an entire gallon of boiling water. De-clogged! The green way!
