Unclog Your Drain With Tablets Of Alka-Seltzer

Posted: Updated:

One of the more disgusting chores out there is when you have to unclog your drain -- especially if you don't have any handy tools. But we came across this tip from One Good Thing By Jillee on how to conquer this task with ... Alka-Seltzer.

First, drop four tablets down the drain. Then, pour a cup of vinegar down there, too. Wait about 10 minutes, and then rinse with boiling water. Apartment Therapy notes that this won't work for serious blockage, but will do the trick if it isn't severe.
