While I was pregnant, my husband and I would make regular trips to Barnes and Noble. In fact, on one trip we got some baby name books, and I told him we weren’t leaving until we had a name for our baby boy. (This was after months of going back and forth. And , Yes, we did leave there with his name, but that is a whole different story.
While we were on one of our book store adventures I found this book called, “How to Sew a Button.” It quickly became my favorite read while pregnant. This one had nothing to to with babies, but had everything to do with practical information I could use as a mom. It calmed my nerves, and helped me feel prepared to take on Motherhood.
This book is still a great reference tool to me today. One of the things I learned from the book was how to unclog a drain. The fist time I tried this I was shocked at how well it worked. I felt like I could conquer the world as a SAHM, and save us money. I have no idea why I got so excited, but I remember I couldn’t wait for Derrick to get home so I could tell him what I had done.
Steps to Unclogging a Drain
Step 1: Sprinkle 1/2 cup of baking soda down your clogged drain.
Step 2: Wash it down with 1/2 cup of vinegar, and put the stopper in. Let it set for 15 minutes.
Step 3: While waiting heat some water. You want the water hot, but not quite boiling.
Step 4: After 15 minutes. Flush the drain with the hot water. Repeat if necessary.
*To keep your drains fresh, ever few weeks treat your drains with 1/2 of baking soda followed with hot tap water.
It looks easy! Great tips!! I’m intrigued about the book 🙂 I will pin this now.
I know I’m supposed to be on break… don’t get mad at me! haha I really needed a break from all the college stuff so I visited your blog 😉 besides, I miss blogging so much 🙁 can’t wait to be back!
HAHA. I am glad you stopped by, Mariely. I was starting to feel lonely in this new blog home. I do love this book, it has all kinds of great ideas for just about everything.
Who Knew?!?! I pinned this and tweeted the pin. I am gonna have to check out that book too. Wonder how many other practical tips I’m missing out on…
So glad you stopped by. I really do recommend the book. It has great advice, and the writer has a good sense of humor so it’s a fun read.
This reminds of that time when I actually just used vinegar to declog. Honestly I was thinking it would do the job, but I ended up with a sink smelling like vinegar all morning.
Gotta buy baking soda next time.
Thanks for sharing.
Wow! It helped! Thank you very much!
