Drop the Draino! We have a fabulous "green" drain cleaning tip that we have tested in our new sattelite test lab in Essex, Vermont. Caustic chemicals? No! Putrid plunger? No! We solved this problem by simply opening our staff kitchen cabinets. First sprinkle a hefty amount(1/2 cup or so)of baking soda down the drain. Next, chase it with a 1/2 cup of vinegar. Cover the drain opening with a wet cloth and let it sit about five minutes. Finally, remove the cloth flush the drain with steaming hot water! Away go all your worries not to mention the nastiness in the drain!
