The garbage disposal and drain in my kitchen sink is temperamental, to say the least. (A more accurate description would be to say that my drain is a diva of the first rank!) Over the years I’ve had several unpleasant experiences with backed up pipes, so these days I am extremely careful about what I put down it. No rice, no eggshells, no vegetable peels, etc.
But a few years ago, before I had learned my lesson about our finicky drain, I made the not-so-smart decision to put a bunch of discarded cilantro stems down into the disposal. (I know – what was I thinking?!) And sure enough, the garbage disposal was running but no water was going down the drain. It just sat there mocking me!
I was grateful that my husband happened to be out of the house at the time, because I could already hear the lecture that he would give me if he found out about this incident! So in a desperate attempt to avoid receiving that lecture, I decided to try a method I had read about online to unclog a sink.
And guess what? It worked like a charm! Both the crisis and the lecture were successfully averted that day. The secret of the method I used is the bubbling, de-clogging reaction that takes place between vinegar and baking soda. The bubbling reaction helps to dissolve whatever may be clogging your pipes, then a flush with hot water whisks the clog away. The result is clear pipes, and a clear conscience! 😉
