I read through several tips to see if this one had been submitted. I was helping my friend clean a bathroom that had a clogged basin drain. It probably had kitty litter, aquarium gravel, hair and who-knows-what-all down it.
After the two of us polished off half a two-liter bottle of diet pop (on purpose to empty it!), I filled it with water, matched the opening of the bottle to the drain opening and mashed the bottle firmly.
It worked! I re-did it several times until the bottle was all caved in. I then put the stopper in the sink and filled it with soapy water several times, then pulled the plug out and let it run out as fast as it could. This didn't cost anything and the bottle is recyclable. Hope this helps,

Wow! This is one Amazing tip! It's funny how the simplest things can be made into wonderful ideas by a brilliant mind! Thanks for taking the time to post this for us mere mortals (that aren't quite as quick thinking!) Great idea!
Strangely logical, once you think about the fact that soda pop is acid-based. Also a great way to use up flat soda no one wants to drink, lol!
