In our (almost) 12 years of marriage we have lived in 6 states. There have been good things with each one but North Carolina will always be one of my favorites.
While we lived there I became close friends with a women who is about 25 years older then me. She is very much a southern women and she taught me many wonderful southern things such as what yonder means and how far a tator chuck is.
She had some fantastic cleaning tips, but the one that has been the most useful is homemade drano.
You will need
Pour some baking soda in your sink. Pour in some vinegar until it stops bubbling. Let it sit awhile. Pour the boiling water down the drain.
The southern folk don't measure things. They have this gift of knowing exactly how much of something they need, so I can't tell you how much baking soda and vinegar you need, but here is what I do.
I grab a box of baking soda and just pour it in. It usually comes out to around 1/2 to 1 cup.
Then I slowly pour in the vinegar a little bit at a time until it stops bubbling.
The Verdict: This doesn't work great for really clogged sinks. It's more of a preventative item, but I have had success on drains that are slow and getting close to clogging. My friend told me she does this to all her sinks and tubs/showers once a month and she has never had a clogged drain.
So if you have drains that are off like a heard of turtles then this drano will help the water get through faster then green grass through a goose.
Ya'll come back now, ya hear?
