Slow Drain

If you've got: a slow drain

Ideal solution: A plumbing snake that breaks up the debris causing the clog

In-a-pinch fix: Baking soda and vinegar

How it works: When you pour a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by a cup of vinegar and then hot water, the chemical reaction forms a powerful foam that may cut through the gunk in your pipes.
