Do you have sink stink?
Do you dread turning on the faucet because of the foul smell that hits your nose? Use this easy DIY trick to solve that now!
If you have no idea what I am talking about…move right along to another DIY post. If you do, then you know EXACTLY what I am talking about.
This hack is absolutely perfect for the DIY’r because you probably already have these low-cost products sitting in your cabinet somewhere. I am amazed how well it instantly works. It also reminds me of an old school science experiment from after school TV. Read on…
GATHER YOUR SUPPLIES
1 cup salt
1 cup baking soda
2 cups vinegar
1 container that will hold at least 3 cups (I like to use Ball canning jars because they are already marked for accurate measuring)
Remove the stopper from the sink
Mix salt with baking soda in the container of your choice
Pour the mixture down the drain
Follow immediately with the vinegar
This will cause an immediate fizzing reaction (think Snap, Crackle, Pop)
About 15 minutes later, use hot water to wash it down.
That is seriously all there is to it. I know, right?! I just repeat as often as needed.
This post is NOT for clogged sinks. If you have a clogged sink and you have already tried liquid helpers, go out and get yourself this – the Liquid-Plumr Hydro-Pressure Plunger for sinks and drain clogs. It is great. It is NOT great if you have teenage girls in the house who shed over the sink. Then you just need to take the plumbing apart and dig out the mice-sized hair clogs trapped inside.
