Here Is Why You Need to Pour Normal Salt Down Your Drain Overnight

According to statistics, 9% of people have had to deal with a clogged drain in their sink. 15% of homeowners have trouble fixing backed-up drains. All those things can be managed better with one simple thing — salt.

1. Salt dissolves materials that clog your pipes.

Salt dissolves grease and oil. As part of regular plumbing maintenance, it can help to avoid any serious problems with pipes in the future. Also, drain flies live in moist places with plenty of food. Salt will discourage drain flies.

If you have a clogged drain, pour half a cup of salt down your drain and then add a cup of white vinegar and baking soda.

2. Salt can soften hard water.

Hard water leaves a buildup that is difficult to clean. You can see this buildup on a faucet. As a result, it harms your pipes, because you can’t wash them.

The solution is to just put some salt down your drain, and let it sit overnight. This way, you can prolong the life of your kitchen and bathroom equipment.
