MY EXPERIENCE -

I have had a slow draining bathroom sink for a long time!!  

I decided that was the perfect opportunity to try this drain cleaner out for you.  It took doing it 3 times, but that is no different than when I used a store-bought drain cleaner the last time this sink was draining slowly!!

The 1st time I followed the directions exactly.  The sink still drained slowly.

The 2nd time I followed the directions exactly, but remembered the last time I used a store-bought drain cleaner and the instructions said to turn on the hot water faucet and let the water run for a while.  I added that step five minutes after letting the vinegar/hot water mixture sit in the pipes and do its job. Bubbles started coming up from the drain to let me know something was working, but the water still drained slowly.

The 3rd time I followed what I did the 2nd time AND THE WATER DRAINED FREELY FROM THE SINK.  NO SLOW DRAINING AT ALL!!

YAHOO!  NO CHEMICALS!  NO STORE-BOUGHT DRAIN CLEANER!  I HAD ALL THE INGREDIENTS IN MY KITCHEN!  MY SINK FLOWS FREELY!!

save this great idea for when you need it!!

Happy Week!!
