How to Fix a Clogged Drain Yourself | Orange Country, CA


So you have a clogged drain? Don’t stress, there are a ton of ways to solve your problem. It’s vital that you fix your clogged drain as soon as possible, as it will make it much easier to actually fix in the end. Here are a couple of ways in which you should try to fix your clogged drain.

The Bent Wire Hanger

Find yourself a regular wire coat hanger and straighten it out as best as you possibly can. Bend one end over and create a small hook. Push it past the drain cover and start fishing. You should definitely be able to get all sorts of hair out of the drain. As you get as much as you can out, run hot water through the drain, and it all should clear out!

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Mix1/3 cup of baking soda with 1/3 cup of vinegar in a measuring cup. As you do it, it will begin to fizz and so you’re going to want to pour the mixture down the drain as fast as you can. This will help you remove the gunk, hair, and grime that is built up on the pipe. Let it sit overnight and then flush it out with hot water!

Boiling Water

This is the simplest method of them all. Start by boiling yourself some water in a kettle. Slowly begin to pour it down the drain, but allow the water to do its work in between your pouring.
