The sink is one of the most germ-ridden fixtures in the house, according to a joint study conducted by the Foundation for Health and Social Security Studies (FESS) and the University of Barcelona. They found that the sink can have up to 100,000 times more microorganisms than the bathroom. To combat this, they have revealed a foolproof trick.

Cleaning and disinfecting the sink regularly is crucial to eliminate dirt and unpleasant odors, as well as to prevent potential clogs.

The first tip is to remove food scraps before washing dishes or utensils. This helps prevent the accumulation of debris and clogging the pipes. It is also advised not to pour cooking oil down the drain as it is harmful to the environment and can solidify, leading to blockages, especially when mixed with food residue.

Chemicals other than dishwasher detergent, such as paints or disinfectants, should also not be poured down the drain. These products are usually greasy and can cause obstructions.

How to easily and affordably unclog a sink

In the past, we have discussed the benefits of vinegar and baking soda for cleaning various appliances, utensils, and kitchen surfaces. This combination not only helps remove dirt, but it also disinfects and degreases. Additionally, it can be used to unclog sinks.

Baking soda

To use this method, simply pour a cup of baking soda down the drain, ensuring it reaches the sink hole, and add a cup of vinegar. Then, cover the drain and let it sit for half an hour. Afterward, flush the drain with plenty of hot water and check the results. If the clog persists, you can repeat the process multiple times.

This alternative is much gentler on the pipes compared to chemical unclogging products, which are often corrosive and can cause significant damage. While there are high-quality and user-friendly alternatives available, they are typically more expensive. Therefore, this homemade tip is a cost-effective solution.
