Do those commercials for drain cleaner make you think about that slow drain you keep meaning to fix?
While watching television this weekend a friend asked me whether, in my professional opinion, those chemical drain cleaners were worth the money. I've had customers ask me the same question many times.
Even after setting my personal preference for snaking a drain rather thank chemical cleaning aside, I usually don't recommend buying a cleaner. Using a combination of baking soda and vinegar as a homemade drain cleaner can effectively clean drains and save you money.
Use baking soda and vinegar as part of a regular drain cleaning maintenance cycle to keep all of your drains clear, but don't forget to physically remove debris from drains also.
