Hi Reena,

I want to know the best way to clean my drains.



Dear Donna,

In a jar combine 2 tbps. cream of tartar, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 tsp. salt. Drop in the drain and chase with boiling water. Repeat as necessary. Another option is to pour a 1/2 cup of salt down the drain, followed by boiling water or vinegar. Extra tip: don't toss flat cola into the garbage; instead pour it into drains to keep them fresh.
