How to Clear a Clogged Drain with Vinegar
Drain any water from the sink or tub. If it’s really slow-draining, this may take a while, but if you remove the water, you drain-clearing mixture will be able to work on the clog much faster.
Gather household cleaning/kitchen items. You have several options for creating a non-commercial drain opener. Most involve vinegar and another substance that create a chemical reaction when combined. See if you have any of these drain-opening agents on hand:
- Vinegar (white or apple cider vinegar work) is the acidic base for creating the foaming reaction.
- Lemon juice is acidic like vinegar, but smells refreshing. This makes lemon juice a good option for clearing out clogged kitchen sinks.
- Baking soda is frequently used as a multipurpose cleanser.
- Salt will help eat away at the clog.
- Borax is frequently used as a multipurpose cleanser.
Pour vinegar and another drain-opening agent down the drain. No mixing is needed before pouring down the drain. The mixture will foam up on its own as the chemical reaction occurs. 
- For a vinegar and baking soda combination: use 1/2 cup of baking soda and 1/2 cup of white vinegar.
- For a lemon juice and baking soda combination: use 1 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of lemon juice.
- For a salt, borax, and vinegar combination: use 1/4 cup of borax, 1/4 cup of salt, and 1/2 cup of vinegar.
