A clogged drain is no fun.

Here you need to react quickly so that the water can flow again soon.

We reveal with which power combination this is possible.

The cause of the blocked drain can be different.

Regardless of whether there is too much hair or leftover food in the pipe, the solution does not always have to be a chemical agent.

The

combination of vinegar * and baking soda is

more

environmentally friendly

and cheaper for your wallet.

  • 4 heaping tablespoons of baking soda powder

  • Half a cup of vinegar essence

  • Damp cloth

  • About 1 liter of boiling water

Combination of vinegar and baking soda: Here's how to proceed

Pour the specified amount of baking soda down the drain and carefully pour half a cup of vinegar essence afterwards.

A

chemical reaction occurs between the two substances

, which releases carbon dioxide.

To intensify the process, place the damp cloth on the drain hole.

This also protects yourself from the mixture, which can splash upwards in a foamy manner.

After about four to five minutes, you can rinse off with the boiling water.

Alternatives against the clogged drain

Instead of

baking

soda,

baking powder

or washing

soda can also be

mixed with the vinegar

.

The procedure is the same.

If these home remedies are not enough to free the drain from blockages,

mechanical alternatives are

needed.

The suction cup in particular can be helpful.

And this is the best way to proceed:

  • In the first step, all other drainage openings are covered with a damp cloth.

  • Put the plunger on the drain.

    Ideally in the middle so that there are no openings.

  • In the next step, the suction bell is pressed down firmly and the tap is turned on.

    The stick must be completely covered with water.

    Once that is the case, you can move on to the next step.

  • The suction bell is moved up and down alternately, but never completely lowered.

  • Now pump until the water can drain off.

    Please note that the dirt is often pushed upwards.
