Have you ever walked past your kitchen sink and got a whiff of funk? You flip the disposal switch and hope that will take care of the stench, but the malodorous cloud remains, emanating, we assume, from foodbits caught in your P-trap. Here’s an easy and SAFE way to eliminate the problem.
All you need is some baking soda, vinegar (the cheapest you can find will do nicely), and a few cups of boiling water.
First, sift a cup or so of soda directly into your drain; next, pour about a cup of vinegar into the soda. (Here you will get a flashback of elementary school science class. Remember soda and vinegar volcanoes?) Then, pour two cups or more of boiling water down the drain. And voila, no more reek-age.
Of course you can be proactive with your funk by doing this simple process every now and then to keep your pipes clean and the funk at bay.
