1. Hot water and dish soap
The easiest drain cleaner for your kitchen sink is dish soap and hot water because they are already there! Simply, boil 2 liters of water, then add a few tablespoons of liquid dish soap.
You can slowly pour the mixture down the sink, and for excellent results, it’s best to do this method a few times. If you are dealing with greasy clogs, then this homemade drain cleaner will work like a charm.
2. Wire coat hanger
Yes, a hanger from your closet can be a great drain cleaner. Just straighter one out (leave the hook), keep a grocery bag or anything to discard your findings nearby, then use the hanger to fish out whatever is clogging your drain. Once you remove as much as you can, run hot water down the sink.
3. Vinegar and baking soda
If you have vinegar and baking soda
in your home, then don’t worry about clogged drains. These two ingredients can be great drain cleaners when mixed together, and the process is easy.
First, you have to clear your sink, then put down the drain ½ cup of baking soda, then add ½ cup of vinegar. Plug your drain and wait for one hour. When it is time, unplug the drain and pour boiling water till the drain is completely clear.
4. Borax, salt, and vinegar
Also, an easy drain cleaner to make with ingredients
that are already in your house. Go to the drain and pour ½ cup of vinegar, ¼ cup of Borax, and ¼ cup of salt, then you can start running boiling water and give it one hour to clear. Again when it’s all done, clear the entire area, including your drain, with hot tap water.
