Need help with a clogged bathroom sink drain?
Well, not THAT kind of clog.
What worked for me
I’ve only tried this on my bathroom sink. But with just some cheap shampoo and hot water, my clogged bathroom sink drain was running clear within minutes. And, in this case, I didn’t even need to add the pot of hot water that I had prepared. Or spend extra money on pricey drain de-cloggers.
I just poured about two tablespoons full of shampoo right down into the top of the drain, and stepped away to heat up some water. By the time I returned a few minutes later to check on the progress, the clog had disappeared!
Clogged bathroom sink fix may take longer
I’m assuming that a more aggressive clog would take longer. But, in that case, I think you can use about the same amount of shampoo, at least the first try. And then wait about 10 – 20 minutes. Then add a potful of very hot water (not boiling water to avoid accidents).
Hopefully that will do the trick. But if it’s still clogged, just as you would when shampooing your hair, repeat and rinse. (You might wait a little longer if the first time didn’t work.)
Cheap is the name of the game
Since this is one of my posts to help you save money, first you will be saving on one of those pricey (and toxic) decloggers. But I also recommend you don’t waste your hard-earned money using expensive shampoo to try this.
Instead, go get yourself a big economy-sized bottle of any cheap shampoo. And then keep it around for the next “unclogging your bathroom sink drain” adventure. Please let us know how it works!
BTW … this works great for toilet clogs too. Just add a little extra shampoo, wait 10 – 20 minutes, and prepare two pots of hot water to top it off after the time has elapsed.
This may also take a second try, but it’s always worked for me. And with minimal effort!
