Most homeowners are familiar with clogged drains that occasionally occur in a sink or bathtub. Treating clogs that occur in most drains is typically done by using a highly caustic store bought product. However, there are safer ways for a typical homeowner to clean their drains without using potentially toxic chemicals. One option is a simple non-toxic drain cleaner.

Stubborn clogs can also require the assistance of an experienced plumber. A plumber will use special tools to clean drains that are clogged. One thing plumbers will do is recommend that homeowners not pour a store bought chemical cleaner down their drains. The reason is these products will easily damage their plumbing pipes over time. Using a non-toxic drain cleaner is a better option.

The dangers of using toxic chemicals to clean drains is the best reason to have a non-toxic drain cleaner available. A non-toxic solution is safer for both adults and children in a home. The ingredients used for this product should be available in your kitchen. If you do not have all the ingredients needed to make a batch of non-toxic drain cleaner, then you will need to take a trip to your local supermarket.

All you need to make a non-toxic drain cleaner at home is vinegar and baking soda. You will see this is an option that can be used to treat minor issues that could occur with a sink. This is an ideal solution to help eliminate odors coming from a sink drain that has a garbage disposal.

The number of times to use this non-toxic drain cleaner will depend on the extent of the problem. Most tough clogs may require running the cleaner through the pipes two to three times. If you find that the sink in your kitchen or bathroom is draining slow, then this is the best time for a non-toxic product.
