If you have PVC pipes in the home, you want to use mild cleaning ingredients when cleaning the pipes. The strong, chemically-based cleaners found in many drain cleaning items are too harsh for the PVC and end up eating holes through your pipes. Instead, use a homemade pipe cleaning solution that causes no harm or damage to the PVC material but is still effective in cleaning your drainpipes.

Things You'll Need

  • Pot
  • Water
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar

Bring 1 gallon of water to a boil on your stove, and pour the water into the drain. This loosens and buildup inside the pipes.

Pour 1 cup baking soda and 1 cup white vinegar into the drain opening. Let the mixture work through the drain for one hour.

Bring another gallon of water to a boil, and pour it down the drain after the hour has passed.
