Does vinegar unclog drains?

Vinegar can be used in combination with baking soda to unclog a drain. Follow the steps below for help unclogging a drain:

1.      First, use a bucket to remove as much as the standing water as possible.

2.      Then, remove any items you may find in and around the clogged drain. This could be food scraps, hair or other objects.

3.      Pour ½ cups of baking soda into the clogged drain. Follow up with 1 cup of vinegar. Let the clogged drain sit for 15 minutes.

4.      Slowly pour a pot of boiling water down the drain to help loosen the clog.

5.      Apply a layer of petroleum jelly around the lip of a plunger. This will create a seal between the plunger and the drain.

6.      Place the plunger over the drain and plunge away!

Lastly, run water into the drain to see if the clog is fixed.
