This easy method with 3 ingredients is a great way to clean drains naturally.

Many store purchased cleaners have hazardous, corrosive chemicals with strong odours that can irritate people with asthma, allergies or sensitivities.

These natural ingredients are safe to use, environmentally friendly and are good for sensitive noses, children and pets.

Blocked and stinky drain prevention tips
There are a few things you can do to stop drains from blocking and becoming stinky, including;
Use a drain strainer to collect food, hair or other materials. Empty the strainer regularly.
Collect fat and oils in a jar rather than pouring it down the drain.
Pour 1 kettle of boiling water down the drain once a week to dissolve any fat build up.
Repeat the 3 ingredient drain cleaning method above weekly to prevent blockages and keep your drains smelling good.
