The three ingredients you’ll need to unclog your sink without using harsh chemicals.

A BLOCKED SINK is a common annoyance that can result in you spending a lot of money to try to unblock the drain on your own.

There are, however, some low-cost home remedies that can work in place of harsh chemicals.

A blocked sink can be an annoyance, whether it won’t drain or you’re suddenly confronted with a pungent odor coming from the plughole.

While there are a variety of products on the market to help you unclog and clean your drains, you may already have some at-home remedies in your kitchen cabinet.

Here are three common household items that can help you get rid of odors and get your sink back in working order.

Baking soda, also known as bicarbonate of soda, is well-known for its numerous uses around the house, including unclogging clogged drains.

Baking soda, on the other hand, must be combined with vinegar in order to work its magic.

According to experts from Coastal Drains, mixing the two ingredients together creates a chemical reaction that can remove stubborn dirt and grime.

However, this method may only work for minor clogs; more serious blockages may require the attention of a professional.

Baking soda costs as little as 65p in supermarkets like Asda.

Vinegar, such as white vinegar, is available for around 29p in supermarkets.

“To unclog your drains using a combination of baking soda and vinegar, start by running hot water through your drain and then adding half a cup of baking soda,” says Coastal Drains.

After that, let the baking soda sit for 10 to 15 minutes before adding half a cup of vinegar, according to the experts.

“Watch the bubbles build up in your drains as these two ingredients combine, working to dislodge those nasty clogs, before flushing out your drains with hot water,” the experts added.

Salt is another non-chemical option for unclogging small blockages.

Because of its antiseptic and abrasive properties, salt is an excellent cleaning ingredient.

“Learning how to unclog a drain with salt is extremely easy and does not require a trip to the store for all the ingredients,” according to Coastal Drains.

It’s also a low-cost option, costing just 27p in Asda and 29p in Morrisons, and is a common ingredient.
