Baking Soda - Salt and White Vinegar – Hazel

Wouldn’t you know it? My kitchen sink did not drain again. I was fresh out of Mr. Plumber, but I remembered my Hints from Heloise that I had recently saved to my word documents.

I did a quick search and found her simple recipe and I soon mixed it all together. Before you could count to ten, we had sweet smelling drains for only a few pennies.

Here it is for you to copy and paste because you may need it later on.

Unclog drains. Combine one-half cup of baking soda with one-quarter cup of table salt, and then pour the mixture down the drain. Pour one to two cups of white vinegar in after it – The drain will foam and bubble. Place a rag or stopper in the drain and wait 30 minutes. Fill a large kettle with water and heat it to boiling. After waiting 30 minutes, remove the stopper from the drain and gently pour in the hot water to flush the drain.

Moving on - - to consider that which clogs our daily lives; I don’t believe the Soda, Salt and Vinegar will work. Perhaps it is time to pause and reexamine our priorities.

It may be time to go through the garage, our closets and cupboards, and gather encumbered items that we are not using and pass them on to someone who truly needs them.

There are times in life, when our daily duties seem to be bogging us down, and we cannot accomplish all that we must do, or think we must do.

Perhaps it is time to eliminate a few non essentials that congest our day. We may even pour out a few tears to God, and ask for wisdom allowing Him to show us how to clean out our surplus activities.

Our Spiritual life often gets cluttered too. If we find we have been too busy to read our Bible, or to pray, and our fellowship with the Lord gets out of whack. The oil of Gladness and Washing of the Water with the Word will make things better here too.

If sin is an issue, the best cleansing element is the blood of Jesus which will wash away every confessed sin.

  1. Love this. Good example of what it's like to have the purity of our Father flood our system and overtake our grunge.
