This holiday season we are all doing so much cooking and baking. Even after Thanksgiving all that cooking can do a number on our sinks and drains. We are just doing so much more, and with the kiddos home from school for winter break it’s also soon to be more laundry and dishes on top of last minute holiday cooking and baking.
Between all of the cooking, cleaning, dishwashing and showering going on, the experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing have put together some DIY tips for keeping drains, disposals, and toilets unclogged during the holidays.
5 Tips For Avoiding A Holiday Plumbing Disaster
- Unlog Your Drain With Baking Soda and Vinegar – Pour a pot of boiling water down the drain then 1/2 a cup of baking soda. Then pour 1 cup hot water and 1 cup vinegar down the drain. Then flush again with another pot of boiling water. This is also great for cleaning your garbage disposal.
- Use A Sink Strainer – I always thought these were gross but they really do trap the food and help keep your drains clog free. Simply dump the food in the garbage can.
- Save The Grease – Get something to save your grease in. We don’t make a lot of meat but it’s important to not dump those fats down the drain. We store our container in the freezer to eliminate and smells then throw it away.
- Keep a Plunger on Hand – Many clogs can be simple and can just be cleared with a plunger. Keep one on hands for guests to use as well.
- Throw Leftovers In The Trash – It’s simple but it does make a difference. Throw any leftover food into the garbage and do not add it to your drains or garbage disposal.
