Ok, I know this isn’t exactly “polite conversation” but since I started growing my hair out my shower drain stays clogged. Now I try to use as many natural products as possible and initially I tried de-clogging the drain with a mix of baking soda and vinegar and it worked alright BUT something told me I had not gotten down to the root of the problem (no pun intended).
I saw a commercial for this new Drano Snake Plus Drain Cleaning Kit and made a mental note to give it a try. I found it priced at 8 or 9 bucks at the drug store. I get a little handy from time to time so I thought, what they hey?! Well, it turned out great! I have to say it’s not for the faint of heart because you do have to do a bit of manual work with the provided plastic “snake” . The snake worked pretty well and I found much more hair down the drain than I thought I would. It was pretty gross. I thought I’d be kind enough to spare you the pictures from my exploit. That being said, I know that these chemicals can be harsh on the pipes when used too often so check out this natural recipe that I’m gonna use in between treatments. Hey, it might be a little gross but it’s definitely cheaper than paying a plumber! Plus, you can use your leftover vinegar for a hair rinse. Give it a try!
