How to Unclog a Shower Drain With White Vinegar & Alka-Seltzer


Shower drains can easily get clogged up by hair. When a drain is clogged, water no longer goes through but collects in the shower instead. It is possible to buy a product that is specifically designed to unclog a drain, or you can try using household products. Alka-Seltzer tablets and vinegar may seem like an odd cleaning method, but many people use it for their clogs.

Things You'll Need

  • 3 Alka-Seltzer antacid tablets
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • Drop 3 antacid tablets (Alka-Seltzer) down the drain.

  • Pour 1 cup of white vinegar down the drain.

  • Wait a few minutes so that the antacid tablets and vinegar can work through the clog.

  • Turn on the hot water and let it run through the drain to clear out the clog.
