It's a kitchen drain, not a garbage can.
Rice grains, bread crumbs, apple seeds - believe it or not, these tiny things are often the ones to blame when it comes to clogged drains. They may be minuscule, but the buildup over months and years can shake even the toughest drain installation toronto.

Keep it clean.
Mix some of your dishwashing liquid with boiling water, pour it down the drain. Do this every so often (once a week at least) to prevent clogs and build-ups in your kitchen drain. You can try baking soda mixed with vinegar, which is a tried and tested way to freshen and unclog drains.

Avoid corrosive chemicals.
Stay away from those cleaning fluids, as they actually do more harm than good. They tend to be corrosive, and can cause potential damage inside your drain pipes.

Odor away.
Your kitchen sink needs to smell good, too. Simply pour some concentrated lemon juice or vinegar into the drain at least once every two weeks. Flush it with boiling water afterwards. This will keep your kitchen sink fresh and odor-free.

An ounce of prevention is always better than a pound of cure. But when the situation calls for it, and the clog is too stubborn for even the toughest plunger, then it's time to call the toronto plumber - or hit the dial tone for the plumbers from down under,

I'm aware of these but sometimes, the househelp is the one who is lazy in removing the crumbs so she lets everything go down to the sink.

OH! It's my recent problem and I hate clogged drains! It's really messy. But sometimes due to handful chores I get short cuts when it comes to dishwashing not that I don't clean the plates well but I get lazy when it comes to removing the small stuff that makes it clogged. HAY WOES of housekeeping.

I'm guilty of letting everything down the drain. My quick solution is that boiling water and dish washing soap. Bye bye clog!

Baking soda and vinegar--I forgot about those! Thank you for reminding me--also I have found that a plunger works if you are like me and forget to do this (baking soda and vinegar)!

I use vinegar and baking soda in the kitchen and in the bathroom showers. It really helps to keep the drain clog free and smelling good.
