How to Unclog a Drain: 3 Tips

A lot of stuff makes its way down the drains in your home. Bits of food in the kitchen sink and hairs in the bathroom, all combine with soap and can clog your drains. The good news is there are easy ways to fix this problem. Here are a few tips:

1. Try boiling water

Boil a full kettle of water and slowly pour it down the problem drain. The heat will break up any residue that is causing the clog, allowing you to get back to business as usual.

2. Use a wet vacuum

If you have a wet/dry vacuum, you have a great tool for unclogging drains. Simply turn it to the wet setting and cover the drain.

3. Break out the plunger

Simply place the plunger over the sink and push down on the handle until the clog has been forced out.
