A difficult stain to remove, a stench or even an obstruction can quickly turn a sink into a nuisance. Clean drains regularly to avoid stench. If the water is not enough to clean the drain properly, you can use your own solution to make your sink work properly in a very short time.
- Pour a cup of white vinegar into the drain. Allow it to sit for about 30 minutes and then rinse the sink using hot water to remove stains.
- Boil three cups of water to remove bad odors from drainage and partial blockage. First, pour 1 cup of baking soda into the pipes and then pour the boiling water. If the water continues to pass slowly, repeat the process until both the stench and the obstruction have disappeared.
- Squeeze some lemons into the drain, wait until the juice settles and do not let the water run for at least an hour. If you do not have fresh lemons, you can use ½ cup of a lemon juice concentrate.
- If you have a white porcelain sink, pour it with bleach straight from the container. Let the bleach settle for about 10 minutes before draining and rinsing it to recover its white color. Use a bleach applicator to clean small, hard stains.
- Scrub ice in a smelly grinder. If a shredder works well but smells bad, fill it with a few cups of ice cubes and pour just a little cold water as they grind to reach all areas with accumulated dirt and also use an “abrasive” Damage steel blades.
