Unclogging Drains

Firstly, keep a jar by your stove to collect as much grease and oil from cooking as you are able. These are the main culprits for clogging your drains.

Secondly, act as soon as you notice a blockage. The longer you leave it the bigger the build-up, and subsequently the more difficult it will be to unclog.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup baking soda
1/2 cup vinegar

Method
Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain, then add 1/2 cup of vinegar.
Cover the hole with a wet towel.
Wait about 5-10 minutes, then pour hot waterdown the drain.
Repeat if necessary.

Microwave

This is an especially great method to clean the gunk that gets splattered at the top.

Ingredients:
microwave safe dish
¼ cup vinegar
water

Method
In a microwave safe dish place 2 cups of water and ¼ cup vinegar. Microwave for 3-5 minutes so that it boils.
Wipe down microwave with damp cloth.

You can reuse the cooled vinegar solution around your kitchen.
