I've had this recipe from Lindsey Coulter for quite a while. Lindsey is the Queen of Green from the David Suzuki Foundation website (http://www.davidsuzuki.org/). She has provided me with several really great recipes to make my own household cleaners. As part of the download file, a drain de-clog recipe was also provided. I tried it out today and it really works!
Pour a generous amount of baking soda down your drain. Add white vinegar (watch it fizz!). Let is sit for a while, then pour hot or boiling water down the drain. Depending on what is clogging your pipes, you may need to repeat a couple of times. It works like a charm.
The inspiration for this blog came after reading Vanessa Farquharson's book, Sleeping Naked is Green, and wondering if her new eco-lifestyle was really applicable to a family of 5 that was already fairly environmentally friendly. At the urging of a friend, I took on the challenge of trying to improve my family's "green-ness", using the book as a template. This blog will record our attempts to improve our environmental foot-print one small change at a time.
