Dear Eco Cleaning expert Bill Capsalis,
I’m turning to you for some expert eco cleaning advice. I’m writing the editor’s letter for this issue of elephant, on the importance of toxic-free cleaning and the mindful life (I think it’ll complement your article nicely).
I myself have some pretty nasty clogs in my drains—lots of hair in the the bathtub and bathroom sink—and I tried using vinegar and baking soda and boiling water, but it didn’t make much of a difference. I’m faced with the possibility of having to go out and buy Draino or some other nasty product, but I can’t in good conscience do that while I’m in the process of writing a letter that preaches to our readers how bad those products are.
Do you have any suggestions for unclogging my drain the eco way? Your help is much appreciated!
Cheers, Heather Merete Mueller.
