How To Clean Up Your Bathroom Sink And It Of Black Stuff
Over the course of time black sludge builds up in your sink drain. Particles of old toothpaste long ago washed down the drain alongside bits of hair and other particles begin to bind together to form this black sludge. In short, it’s molding.
To rid your sink of this mold, you’re going to need to gather a few tools and roll up your sleeves. You’ll need the following:
1 Cup of Baking Soda
1 Cup White Distilled Vinegar
1 Pipe Snake
1 Gallon of Boiling Water
Bring 1/2 gallon of water to a boil and pour it into your drain. The sudden shock of the boiling water will frequently break the sludge and clog up enough to plunge it down the drain.
Now take your plunger and place it over the drain and apply pressure. This should help to break things loose and force the clog further down the drain.
Now take your 1 cup of baking soda and pour it into the drain. It’s going to clean, freshen and deodorize the drain. Allow this to sit for at least five minutes.
Now take your 1 cup of white distilled vinegar and pour it down over the top of the baking soda. These will work together to help freshen and deodorize the drain. Now cover the drain and allow them to sit for awhile.
Pour the last 1/2 gallon of boiling water over this after it has been allowed to sit for a time.
If your drain still seems sluggish, get the pipe snake out and run it through the drain to completely dislodge any remaining clogs or debris.
Repeat this as required to keep your drain running smoothly and smelling fresh. You’re using all natural ingredients that aren’t hard on the environment or your health.
Unclogging the Drain
Pour 1 cup of distilled white vinegar down the drain onto the baking soda. Cover the drain so the ingredients can work their way down through the pipe. The white vinegar and baking soda will create a foaming reaction, which will work its way down the pipe to disinfect and break apart the sludge, rinsing it down the drain with little work required. Both the vinegar and baking soda work as deodorizers, which will also eliminate the foul odor in the drain caused by the sludge. Read entire article here
