How to Fix a Stuck Bathtub Drain

Save

Fixing a stuck bathroom drain is fairly easy. With a few simple ingredients from the kitchen you can mix a solution that is the perfect remedy and save the high cost of a plumber or a plumbers' solution.

Things You'll Need

  • Vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Remove the sink stopper (if there is one) and clear away all debris from the sink drain. Pour one cup of baking soda down the drain.

  • Pour one cup of vinegar over the baking soda and cover, making sure the lid forms a seal. Let the solution sit for at least 15 minutes.

  • Boil a pot of water. After the solution has been applied for at least 15 minutes, pour the boiling water down the drain.

  • Plunge the drain if it continues to be clogged and repeat steps 1-3.

Tips & Warnings

  • Preventing build-up will help to avoid a clogged sink. Practice regular maintenance by pouring the baking soda and vinegar down the drain regularly.
  • If the sink continues to be clogged, plunge the sink or take off the drain cover with a screw driver and clean the drain. Remember to never leave tools unsupervised around children.
