Tip 1: Boiling Water

Pour boiling water down the drain. Boiling water can help dissolve any grease or soap buildup causing the blockage. Remember to be careful while handling boiling water.

 

Tip 2: Baking Soda and Vinegar

Mix equal parts baking soda and vinegar. Pour the mixture down the drain and wait for 10-15 minutes. The chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar can dissolve any blockages.

 

Tip 3: Plunger

Use a plunger to create pressure and suction to remove the blockage. Fill the sink or shower with enough water to cover the plunger. Apply the plunger forcefully and repeat the process a few times.

 

Tip 4: Coat Hanger

Straighten a wire coat hanger to poke and prod the blockage. Be gentle, as you don't want to damage the pipes.

 

Tip 5: Wet/Dry Vacuum

Use a wet/dry vacuum to suck out any debris causing the blockage. Remember to cover the vent to create a seal between the vacuum and the drain.

 

Tip 6: Dish Soap and Hot Water

Pour some dish soap down the drain and let it sit for a few minutes. Follow up with hot water. The dish soap can break down any grease or fat buildup.

 

Tip 7: Enzyme Cleaners

Enzyme cleaners are natural and environmentally friendly. They can break down any organic material causing the blockage. Follow the instructions on the label.

 

Remember, prevention is better than cure. Here are a few tips to prevent blocked drains:

  • Don't pour cooking oil or fat down the drain
  • Use a hair catcher in the shower or tub
  • Don't flush anything other than toilet paper down the toilet
