Drain Cleaner: For light drain cleaning, mix 1/2 cup salt in 4 liters water, heat (but not to a boil) and pour down the drain. For stronger cleaning, pour about 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain, then 1/2 cup vinegar. The resulting chemical reaction can break fatty acids down into soap and glycerine, allowing the clog to wash down the drain. After 15 minutes, pour in boiling water to clear residue. Caution: only use this method with metal plumbing. Plastic pipes can melt if excess boiling water is used.

Only in the last couple of years has the government started to collect property taxes. Basicly it depends upon the value of the property you purchase. If you purchase a residential property and it is worth RD$5 Million Pesos or less (about US$150,000) then you pay 0 (zero) annual property taxes. If the home is worth more than that amount, you pay 1% of the value over and above RD$5 Million Pesos (or US$150,000). If you purchase raw land or undeveloped land, then in that case there is an annual property tax calculation regardless of the value.
