Yesterday, our friend Pam told us she was done with dryer sheets (HALLELUJAH!) then challenged us to find her an effective, non-toxic drain cleaner. Voila! Mix 1 cup baking soda, 1 cup salt, & 1/4 cup of cream of tartar in a container. Pour 1/4 cup of mixed powder into your clogged drain. Pour 2 cups boiling water into drain, and let stand for about an hour, then run fresh water from the tap. Thank you, DIYLife.com.
