Do-It-Yourself Drain Cleaning Tips

Hi Neighbors!

The drains in your home are subjected to a number of different types of debris. Over time, these drains will begin to naturally collect this debris and form clogs. If the plumbing in your home is quite old, then you may experience clogs more frequently than other houses with more modern plumbing. Fortunately, there are a few do-it-yourself ways to keep your drains clean and clear of debris. However, it’s also equally important to know when you should call a drain cleaning company for assistance. Whether it’s a San Diego or San Antonio drain cleaning company that you need to contact, don’t wait until it’s too late to do so. Otherwise, here are a few easy and safe ways to keep your drains in tip-top shape.

Natural Ways to Clean Your Drains

There are a number of household products that can be safely and effectively used to clean your drains. One of the best household products to use on your drains is regular old baking soda. You’re probably familiar with the cleansing powers of baking soda. Yet in addition to being a great household cleaner, baking soda also effectively (and safely) eats away at the debris within your drains. Baking soda is a safe way to clean your drain and won’t hurt your pipes, as many chemical drain cleaners will. Simply run hot water from the faucet and add a tablespoon of baking soda. You can do this on a weekly basis to keep debris from building up in your drains. 

Rinse with Hot Water and Vinegar

Vinegar is another natural household cleaning product that will work wonders in your drains. Simply run hot water from the faucet and pour a fourth of a cup of vinegar directly into the drain. For extra cleaning power, you can add baking soda and let the mixture fizz for a moment before rinsing. The reaction between vinegar and baking soda creates a powerful cleaning agent that also helps to remove small clogs from the drain. If you believe that you have a substantial clog in your drain, however, it’s best to call a professional drain cleaning company. Whether it’s a San Antonio drain cleaning company that you need to contact or a San Diego one, don’t wait to do so. It’s better to take care of this type of problem before it gets out of control.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
