It’s inevitable! Sooner or later, the sink in your kitchen or the drain in your bathtub will clog up with food, hair or fatty deposits. Women with long hair who use heavy conditioner are more susceptible to this as the conditioner tends not to break down easily and gets clogged around lumps of hair.

Here’s a simple, quick and non-toxic way to remove sink blockage fast!

You will need:

  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 cup of white vinegar


  1. Pour the baking soda down the drain. I find a spatula helps get it all down.
  2. Pour the vinegar down the drain and immediately close the plug.  This will force the mixture to push the blockage down.
  3. Wait 5 minutes
  4. Run water, if still blocked, try pouring 4 cups of boiling water down the drain. If this doesn’t work, repeat the above steps.

I recently tried this in my bathtub and it took two tries but worked like a charm. And the best part was I didn’t have to buy any harsh chemicals, hurt my respiratory system or pollute the water.
