The kitchen sink in my home, especially the sink and disposal, is notoriously finicky. A more appropriate term would be to call her a high-maintenance drama queen! I’ve had some interactions with clogged pipes over time, so now I’m paying attention to what’s going on there. Items like rice, eggshell sliver, & vegetable peel are all off-limits.

It’s all about baking soda
Although baking soda is commonly found in the laundry sections of stores, its use is not limited to the washing machine! Learn more about washing soda…
A few years ago, when I was less aware of the moody nature of our drainage, I unwisely decided to throw several leftover cilantro stalks through the trash. (Yes, I agree that was a mistake!) As expected, the garbage disposal seemed to work, but the water refused to flow. Looks like he was make fun of me!
Fortunately, my husband was not home during this episode. I could have heard his objections had he found out about this adventure. So, desperate to get around his painful lecture, I decided to try a technique I found on the Internet to unclog my pelvis.
To my relief, it worked like a charm! I managed to escape the crisis and the conference that day. The effectiveness of this method can be attributed to the fizzy, non-clumping reaction that takes place between the vinegar and baking soda. This bubbling interaction helps clear any blockages in the pipes, and the subsequent flow of hot water clears the blockage. The result is a seamless drain and sigh!
