A blocked drain is something that happens quite frequently in most kitchens. Most people take steps to ensure that their kitchen drains are kept clean, but no matter how many precautions you take, you still end up with a clogged drain. When this happens, you have the option of calling a plumber or using a drainer cleaner.
Many people prefer to use drainer cleaners to unclog the drains. However, not only are commercially available drain cleaners health hazards and environmentally detrimental, they are also very expensive to purchase. Commercially available drain cleaners contain caustic soda, which can harm the skin if not handled with care.
The good news is that people can make drain cleaners at home that are as effective without having any harmful effects. You can use household ingredients to make the drain cleaner. Here is one recipe to make a drain cleaner at home that is extremely effective in unclogging blocked drains.

Let this stay for around thirty minutes. Thereafter, allow the tap to run for a few minutes. You will be amazed to see the results.
You can easily prepare the mixture of salt, cream of tartar and baking soda and store it in an airtight container. Use this mixture every time your kitchen drain or drain in any part of your house gets blocked. All you have to do is pour the boiling water to unclog the drain.
