How Hydrogen Peroxide Can Fix Your Slow- Draining Sinks And Tubs
For those seeking an alternative to chemical-laden drain cleaners, hydrogen peroxide offers a safe, effective, and eco-friendly solution to address slow-draining sinks and tubs.
To use this method, start by removing any visible debris, such as hair or grime, with a plunger. Then, pour a cup of baking soda down the drain and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Next, pour a cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide. You'll notice fizz and bubbles, a sign of the baking soda and peroxide reacting, which helps break down the buildup in the pipes.
Allow this mixture to work its magic for six to eight hours, ideally overnight, for the best results. Finally, flush the drain with hot water to clear away any loosened debris.
If the clog persists, feel free to repeat the process. This method not only clears blockages but also kills bacteria, reducing odors and leaving drains both clean and fresh.
