      Probably safer than Draino and toilet cleaner. Just a thought.

      I would have to look into it. I know it is cheaper for cleaning the coffee maker, I think it is cheaper than draino, and I think it is cheaper than a toilet cleaner as well.

      Three tablets from that amazon link comes out to 13.2¢ - not sure if that helps or not.

      Is this cheaper than other methods or just an alternative?
