Magic Eraser Type Sponge Pieces Clogging Drain

I used a Magic Eraser on the bathroom shower when it disintegrated into pieces and fell down the drain causing a clogged drain. How can I dissolve the pieces?

You can try a snake. If you can't get to it, you may need a plumber.

How far down the drain did it go? Try using a shop vac (the kind that you can use with water). We had a little one put items in our drain and that was how I got it out.

If regular drain solution treatment doesn't work, you might need a plumber.

i am not sure you can dissolve a Magic Eraser so you will either have to bring it up or dislodge it so the pieces are not clumped and may flow through your system.

If you have not cleaned your drain of hair in a long time (especially if anyone has long hair) then this might also be part of your problem. My daughter has long hair and she uses something called drain zip which is very cheap and really works (for removing hair). Here is one for sale at Walmart:

I may not have made myself very clear - I really meant that if you try something like this it may bring up the pieces of the magic eraser along with the hair. They do sell these at a lot of stores and they do work even in other cases of drain problems.

What I would dry is a plastic drain snake like you can get on amazon, home improvement stores and maybe even a grocery store.

They have barbs on them which might help you bring some of that sponge back out and reduce the amount that has to be flushed into your sewer or septic.
