The bathroom sink has been running slow for a few months. I had tried to pull out the hair, etc using the end of a chopstick (it worked to pull out some of it), but I didn’t think it had much hair, etc still down the drain.
The husband suggested I clear out under the sink (ugh) and we pull the stopper out so we could get it really clean.
Well, I got the area under the sink cleared out, but he didn’t have a chance to work on it. So… I did a Google search on how to get the stopper out.
Here is the link I used (photo 3 shows how to get the stopper out).
I was shocked by how much hair, etc that I pulled out of the drain.
After I got all of above out I wiped down the drain with a paper towel and put the stopper back in.
To get the drain even cleaner I then put 1/2 cup baking soda over the drain. I poured a warmed mixture of 1 cup vinegar + 1 cup water over the baking soda and closed the drain for about 30 minutes. After that the drain appeared to drain quickly.
I guess I need to add this task to my To Do List (maybe every six months, if not sooner).
What household task have you learned to do recently?
