Having a clogged drain is the worst

Having a clogged drain is the worst. You wait for the water to go down, and you
wait, and you wait. Eventually, you realize that it’s not happening, or at least
it isn’t happening fast enough for your liking. What could be down there this
time? You think about heading out to the store for some Liquid-Plumr, but that
stuff is so expensive. Isn’t there a cheaper way to unclog the drain. Maybe some
amateur plumbing secrets? Well, as a matter of fact, there are. Here are a few
great ways to unclog that drain using only natural methods that won’t cost Garden

Use Water

30 gallons of water. This pressure will provide enough emphasis to remove a
small clog from the drain. If it doesn’t work the first time, try it again.

kitchen cabinets. Combine the vinegar with a bit of baking soda to make a nice
homemade drain cleaner. Pour the mixture down the drain and you’ll be
participating in one of the most natural plumbing solutions there is. Cover the
drain with a towel to keep the mixture from coming back out. Wait a half hour
and begin pouring some boiling hot water down the drain. For even medium sized
clogs, this solution will often do the trick.

can work just as well Basin
on other clogs as well. Purchase a smaller sized plunger and keep it
exclusively for kitchen sink use. You’ll find that more often than not it is
more than capable of removing even the toughest clogs, especially when used as

unclog a drain. In that case, you should always contact a plumbing professional.
