I love using baking soda and vinegar for cleaning but I have never had much luck with this particular application I have to say. It doesn’t seem to do much in the way of unclogging at all. Maybe I am not using enough? Hmm, I will give it another try I guess.
Catherine, your clog may be more than the baking soda and vinegar combo can handle. Have you tried a zip it tool? Love that thing and it is super cheap.
I’ve done this in the past before but I forgot about doing this. In fact I have a sink that is a bit clogged & I completely forgot about doing anything about it until now. Thanks for the reminder & another great tip!
