How to clear a clogged drain (baking soda + vinegar)

The bathroom sink drain has been clogged since we moved in. The water tends to pool after I run it for a few seconds. Instead of buying a Snake and sticking a coil down the drain, which will inevitably pull up items I do not want to see, I decided to try this all natural method using only baking soda and vinegar.

Directions:

Rinse the sink. Pour a cup of baking soda down the drain. Then, pour a cup of white distilled vinegar down the drain. Rinse with hot water (if you have a pot of boiling water, that might be even better). Run the water for a few minutes. Your drain should be unclogged!

I’ve heard this also works on shower drains.
