1. Remove the drain cap.

2. Mix equal parts baking soda and salt in a bowl.

3. Pour baking soda mixture down the drain.

4. Next, pour warm vinegar down the drain and let sit for a few minutes.

5. Finally, pour boiling water down the drain until it clears.

TIP: Store the mixture of baking soda and salt in an airtight container for whenever you have a clog. We repurposed a mason jar using this handy trick.
