Jacuzzi tubs provide pure relaxation and the ultimate bath experience. However, Jacuzzi drains often get clogged from materials like soap scum and hair. Unclogging your Jacuzzi tub can take some time, but few materials are required.

Step 1

Put on a pair of rubber cleaning gloves. Unscrew the Jacuzzi drain and remove it, if possible.

Step 2

Drop three tablets of Alka-Seltzer into the drain, then pour in 1 cup of white vinegar. Let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Step 3

Run warm-to-hot water down the drain for about 30 seconds. If it is still clogged, repeat Step 2 and use a little more white vinegar.


Step 4

If the clog remains, use an un-bent metal hanger to remove obstructions. Untwist the top of the metal hanger and stretch it out to create one long wire. Use the hanger to remove clumps of grime and hair from the drain. Turn the hot water back on again to clear it. Screw the Jacuzzi drain back on.
