I always prefer using environmental friendly way to clean everything in the house, so I went online to search a way to clean the kitchen sink and garbage disposal. On my first search, the combination of baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and boiling water seems to be the go-to solution for many people, and these items are cheaper than cleaning supplies made with chemicals. After few tries, I thought this would be the only way I clean my kitchen sink and drain until last night. The water was not going down and I tried to use garbage disposal and all the left over start coming back up. YUCK! So I called a plumber and he cleaned out chunks of baking soda wrapped with oil within the pipes.
I wish I had found this article and seen the comparison that the author did, which clearly show that the combination of baking soda and vinegar does not clean the drain but to clog it.
