I'm not one to just jump on any old bandwagon. When I first heard about Pinterest, I was very skeptical. I thought it was a stupid idea! Reluctantly, I joined in February of last year and since then I've found some pretty good ideas there. (Follow me! My Pinterest)
I tell myself that I need to do more than just pin pins, I actually need to use them. I think I've done a pretty good job of that lately, but I want some accountability. So I've decided to use at least one pin per month. That's definitely undershooting things (because I pin a million pins whenever I visit the sight) but I feel like it will at least get me started with using Pinterest as a resource rather than a time killer.
The other night, I decided to try one of the pins from my DIY – Chores Made Easy board. Every now and then the kitchen sink drains will emit an odor. I cook a lot and I don't use drain covers, so a lot of food gets washed down the drain. Again, with my sensitive nose, I notice smells the average person doesn't. Stinky smells particularly work my nerves. So I tried a pin that's supposed to help freshen the drains with nothing more than baking soda, vinegar, and salt.
The directions called for baking soda and salt to be mixed together, poured down the drain, then followed by hot vinegar. On my first try I dumped the baking soda/salt mixture out without even thinking! This didn't work so well. I tried to move the mixture back and forth over the drain with a spoon to get it all to go down, but it wouldn't go! I thought, maybe pouring the hot vinegar over it will make it go down...NOPE! Lol. Eventually I worked it out after playing with it the whole 15 minutes it had to sit in the drain. I learned my lesson! With the next drain, I spooned the baking soda/salt mixture into the drain, poured the hot vinegar, let it sit (and bubble) for 15 minutes, then I ran hot water for about a minute. That was the proper way to get it done!
Either way, both drains ended up smelling fresher than before so I was happy. Here's the link to this method: Cleaning Drains With Baking Soda & Vinegar
