Stinky drain? We have a simple solution that’ll de-stinkify your sink in no time flat. This drain refresher is one of the easiest cleaning products you’ll ever make. But don’t let the short ingredient list fool you, this is a powerful diy cleaner!
A couple of months ago I shared with you a coffee drain refresher that’s pretty much the best thing we’ve ever used. However, there’s one thing that’s not so nice about it: the list of ingredients and the waiting time. It’s a great cleaning recipe, but you have to allow time for the pods to air dry. And while most of the times I’m okay with that, when I’m about to have visitors over and I have none of it ready and my sink is smelling horrible, well let’s just say I need an immediate solution.
For me the reason why this is so good it’s because it uses a combination of vinegar, baking powder, and salt. The vinegar helps deep clean the drain while the baking powder gets rid of pretty much all the nasty smells. The salt? Well, it’s like a scrubbing session for your drain leaving it clean and free of food residue.
I don’t advise making a big batch and save it for later because this diy drain cleaner works best when it’s made fresh, but honestly, it takes something like 2 and a half minutes to whip from scratch.
Add a couple of heaping spoonfuls on the drain and pour some water on top and let it works it’s magic on the way down. I usually repeat the process 3 times to make sure everything is looking and selling nicely.
