In this video, I’ll show you a few proven natural ways to unclog drains using baking soda, vinegar, and hydrogen peroxide.

Tip number 1 – hot water and dish soap.

This method works well because it cleans the grease that ends up clogging the pipes in the kitchen. You may have to repeat the procedure a few times, but you’ll be surprised at how well it works.
It’s important to remember that hot water can damage some types of PVC pipes, so check the type of piping you have at home before using this procedure.
Tip 2 – Have you ever tried baking soda and vinegar?
Usually, the kitchen sink clogs most often due to food and grease residue that accumulates in the pipes. The mixture will fizz and help unclog the sink’s pipes.
Pour a cup of baking soda down the sink drain and then a cup of vinegar. Cover the drain hole with a cloth and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then pour hot water into the sink.
Tip 3 – Use rock salt, baking soda and water.
Another very effective mixture is mixing rock salt with baking soda and water. These two can work wonders, especially when it comes to clogged drains.
Not to mention, it’s great for odors in the pipes. Pour 1/2 cup of rock salt and 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain. Let it sit for half an hour and then pour hot water down your sink drain to clear it.
Tip 4 – Mix hydrogen peroxide with baking soda.
Did you know that hydrogen peroxide can also be used to unclog your drain? Mix one cup of hydrogen peroxide with one tablespoon of baking soda.
