If you have a sink that is draining slowly, you can use vinegar and baking soda to clear it.


Your sink has been clogged for days and now your kitchen is starting to smell bad from the stagnant water. And while you could reach for the bottle of Drano, you may prefer a method that won't involve pouring chemicals down the drain (or you just don't have time to run to the store).

Fortunately, there are many ways to unclog your sink with things you already have in your house. For example, you can use vinegar and baking soda to break down the food and gunk that's causing the clog. You can also use a plunger to work up enough suctioning power to push the food through the pipes.

Depending on how bad the clog is, you may need to follow all of these techniques and repeat as necessary. And if your kitchen sink has a garbage disposal, try running that before you begin to grind any food that could be sitting in there.

Use a plunger
If you've got standing water in your sink, the best way to get it to go down the drain is to plunge it. You'll need a plunger -- but preferably not the one from your bathroom (yuck), so use a clean one. It's a good idea to store a small plunger beneath your sink for this very purpose. 

If you have a double sink, make sure you plug the other side before you begin, to keep the seal intact and to prevent any water from burbling out the other end.

Place the plunger over the drain in your sink to create a suctioning effect and firmly pump up and down until the water begins to clear out. After all the stagnant water is out of the sink, run clean water down the drain to make sure it's clear. If it isn't, you'll need to plunge again.
