Introduction: Unclog a Sink Drain

My bathroom sink was recently clogged and I really needed to unclog without having to run out to the store to buy some Drano.

Instead I used this clever hack and found some great results

Step 1: Boil Water

I started by boiling about one gallon of water on the stove

Step 2: Add Baking Soda

Once the water was boiling I threw about 1/2 cup of baking soda down the clogged drain.

Then I dumped about 2 cups of the gallon of boiling water down the drain.

(for small clogs just baking soda and water will solve the issue. For bigger clogs continue reading)

Step 3: Add Vinegar

Since my sink was still clogged I had to go for the big guns.

I dumped about 1/2 cup of vinegar down the sink. Then I quickly covered the opening of the sink with a cup to keep the reaction of baking soda and vinegar from exploding into the sink.

After the fizzing went down, I poured the rest of the still boiling water down the sink, clearing up the clog.
