Inexpensive Solution for a Clogged Pipe


My family lives in a house built in 1926 so you better believe we've worked on more than our fair share of do-it-yourself projects in the last few years.  Our latest issue has been a clogged pipe in our upstairs bathroom.  I've tried plunging it and dumping hot water down the pipe without much success.  I wanted to avoid using one of the commerical chemical products so I started looking for natural solutions online.  

Luckily I found an article about 150+ Household Uses for Vinegar and their suggestion completely did the trick.  I poured 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain followed by 1 cup of common white vinegar.  The pipe foamed up a bit and then I flushed the pipe with hot water.  Voila!  It worked like a charm!
