The kitchen sink is indispensable to your daily routine, but you don’t really appreciate it until something goes wrong. A clogged sink can be a disaster, as dishes stack up and cooking comes to a halt until the drain is clear. If your kitchen sink is running slow or is clogged now, follow the steps below to unclog the drain and get your kitchen running again–without harmful chemicals.
Make a drain-clearing solution. Combine 1/3 cup baking soda with 1/3 cup vinegar in a large liquid measuring cup, pitcher or bowl. The solution will fizz up rapidly when you combine the ingredients, so make sure the container is big enough to leave you plenty of space at the top.
Pour the solution down the drain. Quickly pour the entire contents of the container down the drain. The faster you can do this, the better, because the fizzing action will gradually die out
Wait 5 minutes. Give the solutions time to clear the drain.
Rinse with warm water. Turn on your tap and rinse the solution down with warm or hot water. The clog should be gone, and the water should go down the drain normally.
