Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

The cleaning hacks that we find on social media are true game-changers, aren’t they? This one is especially helpful to anyone who has been struggling to deal with clogs in their sink.

When these types of clogs arise, we can be left very, very frustrated. If you have ever purchased a store-bought item that was supposed to unclog the sink and didn’t, you know where we are coming from.

Now, one man is providing a helpful video for getting those drains unclogged and we have to give YouTube the props for coming to the rescue.

Once you have had the chance to see it, you are sure to have a new video to add to your bookmarks. We are definitely holding onto this one for the next time that our drains end up clogged.

This is a much better alternative as compared to wire hangers or plungers. The toughest clogs refuse to budge and can have us trying things that we know good and well are not going to work. That’s just what frustration does to a person. There are a few things that we need to mention before we proceed with Pan The Organizer’s hack. First of all, the industrial strength unblocker that we usually use happens to be somewhat expensive.

It’s not the best for the plumbing in the home either. That’s why Pan The Organizer is looking to help out. According to him, all you need is some hot water, vinegar, and baking soda. Most of these ingredients are already present in any home, so you will not have to run to the store in most cases.

It starts by taking a kettle of piping hot water and sending it down the pipes in question.

Next you add 1 cup of baking soda down the drain and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

Follow the baking soda up by an equal amount of basic distilled white vinegar and let that also sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

Then another pour boiling hot water again down the drain.

Finally run the hot tap water for 5 minutes to clear out any residual residue.
