Solving Bathtub Drain Clogs
Bathtub drains don’t suddenly become clogged – the stoppage often takes time to build up, draining water more slowly with each use. The two main culprits? Hair and soap scum. Follow the tips below to defeat any clogged bathtub drain.
If the problem occurs near the top of the drain, it can often be solved with a bit of manual labor. All you need to do is remove the hair from the cross hairs in your drain basket. This can be done by using an unraveled wire coat hanger to pull out the hair. Once the hair is removed, flush the drain with hot water to see if the problem is solved.
If you’re not very handy and the thought of using tools to fix the problem makes you cringe, there is a powerful natural solution. Baking soda mixed with vinegar is a stubborn clog’s nightmare. Simply pour 1 cup of vinegar, 2 cups of baking soda and 4 cups of water down the drain. Let it sit for 30 minutes and run hot water through the pipes.
