Does Lemon Juice Unclog Drains?

Try Out This Natural, Handy House Hack for Your Clogged Drain

When it comes to household tips and tricks, homeowners are always looking for the next best cleaning alternative. In recent years, homeowners have truly embraced the elevated sense of health and cleanliness that natural cleaning products bring. At Meyer’s Companies, Inc., our team is here to support you in keeping your household running the way you like it. We are here to offer the top-notch repairs and installations you need, but we are also here to offer convenient “house hacks” we’ve learned along the way.

If you need to unclog your drain, we would love to be the first ones you call, but we know that you might want to try some at-home remedies first. Lemon juice is one of the “tried and true” unclogging remedies that many homeowners love. To put this trick into action, you will first want to pour some boiling water down the drain to loosen any existing buildup. If you can feel the buildup loosening, but can also feel that there is still some buildup, you might want to use a sink plunger to clear out some of the rest.

Next, in addition to lemon juice, you will want to use about 8 ounces of baking soda. This is what you will pour down the drain next, but you want to make sure it does not become clogged in the drain. Finally, you will add the magical ingredient: lemon juice. The lemon juice and baking soda will react to create a foaming sensation. This should clear up a clogged drain pretty effectively. Finally, you should flush the drain with boiling water again. The purpose of this step is to remove any remaining residue to clear the drain effectively.
