1. Unclog Congested Drains & Pipes
Are you tired of using harsh chemicals to clean out the drain? Have you been looking for a natural solution for getting rid of grease and gunk? Mix equal parts sea salt, baking soda, and vinegar and say goodbye to clogs. Pour the mixture down the drain and let it sit for an hour to work its magic. Follow it with a kettle of hot water to melt away any remaining grease and build-up. Repeat this step until the sea salt mixture is completely gone. Pro tip: avoid grease buildup by disposing of high-fat substances (bacon grease, coconut oil, nut butters, gravy, etc.) in an empty can and let it cool before throwing it out in the trash. Although it’s convenient to flush food particles down the drain when washing dishes, use a drain trap to catch solid remnants such as eggshells and coffee grounds as they are notorious for causing clogs and slowing down water flow.
