Easy DIY Drain Cleaning Steps

A persistent smudge, stench or even a clog can quickly turn any sink into a bother, and that is just nothing but irritating. Clean drains routinely to avoid odors. If you notice water no longer drains properly, you can use a quick do-it-yourself fix to have your sink working properly in no time.

Bend Drain Cleaning Steps

Step 1 of 2 of Bend Drain Cleaning: Get Rid of Stains and Odors

  1. Pour 1 cup of white vinegar down the drain. Let it sit for 30 minutes, then rinse your sink with hot water to remove the stain.
  2. Boil 3 cups of water to remove drain odors and partial blockage. Pour 1 cup of baking soda down the drain first and follow it with the boiling water. If it still drains slowly, repeat until any odor and clog is gone.
  3. Squeeze a few lemons over the drain and let the juice sit without running water for at least 1 hour. If you don’t have fresh lemons, a 1/2 cup of lemon juice concentrate will work.
  4. Fill a white porcelain sink with bleach directly from the bottle. Allow the bleach to sit in the sink for 10 minutes before draining and rinsing it to get your sink white again. Use a bleach pen for stubborn small stains.
  5. Scour out a stinky disposal with ice. If a garbage disposal runs well but smells bad, fill it with a few cups of ice cubes and give it only a little cold water as it grinds these to scour out buildup with an “abrasive” that will not hurt its steel grinders.

Clear a Clogged Drain

Plungers work great on bulky, not too strong clogs in toilets. Pull out the plunger’s inner skirt to fit the drain, plunge, and rinse in clean water as the bowl refills.

  • Keep a separate plunger for the toilet.
  • Some plungers include a tidy storage caddy.
