Step 1

Pour 1/4 cup baking soda down the drain.

Step 2

Drizzle 1/2 cup of white vinegar down the drain, atop the baking soda. The two ingredients will foam, which is normal.

Step 3

Cover your drain, and let the foaming combination move down the drain for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Rinse the drain with a pot of boiling water, and repeat if any odor remains.
