Keeping drains clear

Q.  Some time ago I read in your column about a solution to keep drains clear. I have used Drano, but that may not be the best. I am sorry I didn’t cut out the information in your column. Would it be possible for you to repeat the information here?

A.  The product I mentioned is Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda. You will find it in the detergent section of your supermarket. There are instructions on one of the side panels for use in plumbing drains. Follow them carefully as I have seen  improper use resulting in drains being clogged by the Washing Soda when it turned into a cement-like plug.

Super Washing Soda is for use in sluggish drains or as regular maintenance. It is not to be used in completely clogged drains. Regular use of Super Washing Soda should prevent drains from clogging.
