Commercial drain cleaners are costly and the chemicals can corrode and damage plumbing. What's worse, the toxic vapors can be dangerous to your family's health. A safer, less expensive was to keep clogs away? Pour a 2-liter bottle of cola down the drain once a month. Let it sit for an hour, then flush with hot water for 1 minute. The phosphoric acid in the soda dissolves the buildup of organic matter and soap scum without harming your pipes - or your family. Thanks to All You magazine for this tip! Note: At my local Dollar Tree store, they sell 3-liter bottles of generic cola for $1.00. Use most of it for the drain and have a little left for refreshment.
