Helpful Hints

Drain not doing its job?
Try one of these home remedies:

  • Pour in a cup of plain yogurt and leave it for several hours.
  • Pour 1/2 cup of salt down the drain, then a good amount of boiling water, flush periodically with hot tap water.
  • If the drain is plugged with hair, pour in a bottle of Nair; after half an hour, add very hot water.
  • Shake in half a box of baking soda, followed by a cup of vinegar; after things stop foaming, flush with very hot water.
  • Use a toilet plunger, apply strong force down over the plugged drain, then release.
  • Use a drain-cleaning snake.
  • When all else fails, call a plumber!
