Step 2 – If Using Household Products Like Baking Soda
If you are using household products like the mixture of baking soda with water, make sure its thick enough to slowly penetrate down the drain.
Step 3 – Follow It Up With Vinegar
Once you are done pouring the baking soda paste down the drain, take a few ml of vinegar and pour it gradually. This will create a foaming reaction which will clean up the grease, food particles and dirt which is clogging the kitchen sink. Give this 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 4 – Pour A Pot Of Hot Water Afterwards
Create a brine solution with hot water and salt and pour it down the drain after 10 minutes has passed since the baking soda treatment.
Step 5 – Finish Up By Running Hot Water Through The Faucet
Irrespective of the method used to unclog (chemical or the baking soda mixture) the sink, be sure to finish up by running hot water through the faucet for at least 10 minutes. This should unclog your kitchen sink.
