Then, pour a kettle of boiling water down the drain to get rid of the product and take all the grease and grime with it.
The experts warn against using too much product because the soda crystals could clump together and block your drain.
They added: “If it does clog the drain, just add an acid like white vinegar or citric acid because that will force a chemical reaction which involves the acid and alkali neutralising each other.
“It’s why the ‘mix bicarb and white vinegar’ effect beloved of cleaning influencers works; but it’s more effective (and cheaper) to simply use soda crystals and hot water.”
