Drano vs Baking Soda

January 16, 2009

ok, so yesterday I posted an email I had gotten about how toxic our cleaning products really are… today, I want to share something really cool with you.

A practical, non-toxic way to unclog drains!! YUM.

Drano/ liquid plumber is a major culprit when it comes to poisoning our homes. The statistics are overwhelming! Google it, if you are skeptical.

___ Drain Cleaner - WARNING! - Burns mouth, tongue, throat, and stomach, causing permanent damage. Can cause severe eye damage and blindness.

That totally says YIKES to me… how about you?

We have a little expirament for you… pour baking soda down your drain, followed by 3 cups of boiling water (carefully)… Watch and see. No fumes, no plastic toxic bottle, no chemicals, no FEAR! Best of all, no clog!

Or try this concoction for really tough clogs:
1 cup salt - 1 cup vinegar - 1cup soda down your drain. Let it stand 15 min and watch it fizzle. Flush with 2 qts. boiling water, followed by flushing with hot tap water for 1 min.

It WORKS!!

So if you are frugal like I try to be, check this out… Gel drano $9.20 vs Baking Soda 99 cents plus vinegar 30cents plus salt 50 cents= $1.80.

$9.20 for toxic chemicals or $1.80 for something safe - which one makes cents for you?

Save money, save your health and for the environmentally savvy, save the earth all at the same time!

It is a WIN -WIN!!

My Challenge to you dear readers, is to safely rid yourselves of the Poison called Drano today! It may just save a life.

    So true. Better to use the non-toxic household products first as they are safer, better for the environment and usually cheaper.
