Bad odors can usually occur in the pipes in our house. This often happens in the medium or long term. Generally, these annoying odors are present due to some blockage, but they can also appear, due to the accumulation of sediments, food remains or even the remains of insects or little animals that could have been caught in the pipelines.
It is true that in the supermarkets we can find many products clean the pipes. Some are meant to remove clogs, while others just clean and disinfect. However, much of these products contain dangerous chemicals that can affect our health when we inhale them; thus, the importance of having natural solutions on hand.
