  • Clear Drains

    Of all the things that continue to be extremely stubborn around the home is pipe and drain clogging; this, happening even after a good investment in a functional drainage system and good enough plumbing.

    Cleaning clogged pipes before they completely stop will save you lots headache and money in the long run, all the while costing you no extra money as what you need to get the job done is already available around the house.

    To clean clogged pipes that contain either or both metal and plastic parts, you will need; paper towels, baking soda, salt, cream of tartar and boiling hot water.

    The salt and baking soda are what you need for scouring and breaking down the buildup in the pipes while the cream of tartar will naturally clean any metal parts. Pre-measure a quarter of a cup of the salt, baking soda and cream of tartar each and thoroughly mix all three in a container.

    Using the paper towel, wipe around the drain of the sink or tub to remove any hair collections or food pieces; this might be a little disgusting or gross but not as bad as dealing with a burst pipe! Next, sprinkle half the mixture you made down the drain followed by the boiling hot water, at this points you should notice a gradual improved flow down the drain.

    So what if the drain still does not clear and remains clogged? Just pour into the drain a cup of baking soda and follow it up with a cup of vinegar. This mix is more potent and will do much better in clearing more stubborn obstructions; leave it overnight then rinse out with two or three mugs of boiling hot water. AT composite decking is a sustainable, low maintenance alternative to timber decking boards.

    Once bitten twice shy, now you know the tell tale signs of a clogging drain, the awful odors, sink or bath waste water running off slower and slower. Do not ignore these warning signs, maintain proper flowing drains and pipes by removing any build up of muck or hair and using the (as above) mix of homemade drain cleaner at least once a week!
