Natural Ways to Unclog a Drain
Is your drain starting to smell? Is water starting to accumulate in your sink and go down much slower than in the past? You may have a partially clogged drain on your hands. This could be caused by a number of things. Soap, food, and hair are normal culprits to a clogged drain. If you can’t get your drain unclogged, you should contact a plumber service company. Thankfully, there are also plenty of ways to unplug the drain yourself.
One option is that you could create a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. You will need one cup of the hydrogen peroxide and a spoonful of baking soda. This particular mixture is powerful because it creates a chemical reaction in your drain. In fact, you will likely hear and see it fizzling. Next thing you know, your drain will be unplugged.
The next way to unplug your drain is a little unorthodox, but it’s very effective. Many plumbers will use a drain snake to reach in the drain and physically remove any debris. However, you don’t need one of these fancy tools. Instead, take a coat hanger and straighten it all out except for one hooked end. Then wrap duct tape around this end and stick it in the drain to remove and debris.
