We all know that when the sink drain is clogged, it smells badly. For cleaning the kitchen sink drain we can use some baking soda or white vinegar. There is also a professional drain cleaner that you can buy and try it. But first of all, do the following parts:
Boiling water: begin boiling the 4 cups of water. The water must become in the boiling temperature (212 degrees Fahrenheit, 100 degrees Celsius). If your pipes are PVC or plastic, they can tolerate a maximum of 140 degrees Fahrenheit or 60 degrees Celsius. So do not pour water hotter than the temperatures that we have explained. If you pour water hotter than 60 degrees Celsius, your pipes will be damaged.
Pouring hot water into the sink drain: when the hot water gets prepared, pour it very slowly into the sink drain. Pour the water completely into the sink to flush out all the grease in the pipe. You can add some dish soap to the hot water for getting better results.
Pouring cold water: after you have poured hot water, then it is the time for pouring the cold water into the kitchen sink drain. Prepare 4 cups of cold water and pour it into the sink drain. At this time, there is no need for adding any dish soap or any other washing powder. Remember that, pour the cold water, five minutes later than pouring the hot water. This will result in removing any remaining debris or grease in the sink drain.
Pouring hot water again: after pouring the cold water into the sink drain, then it is time to pour the hot water again. Pour 4 cups of boiling water into the sink drain. The debris and grime will be removed completely. You can do the above instruction weekly so that the sink drain won’t be clogged.
Baking soda and vinegar to unclog sink
Pouring baking soda: pour a cup of baking soda into the sink drain. The baking soda will remove the bad smell of the kitchen sink. In addition, it is a great way to clean out the drain.
Boiling the white vinegar: start boiling 4 cups of white vinegar on the stove. White vinegar receives to the boiling temperature sooner than the water, so be careful!
Pouring the white vinegar: when the white vinegar starts boiling, pour it into the sink drain. It deodorizes the kitchen sink drain. The combination of hot white vinegar and baking soda is a great way of cleaning the sink drain and make it smell better.
Wait for one hour: after you have poured baking soda and the vinegar, wait for one hour. We suggest you do this instruction at night. You do not need your sink, so the mixture does its job better.
Pouring the hot water: after one hour or when you wake up, pour 4 cups of boiling water into the sink drain. All the grime and drains will be removed.
