Drain Cleaning

How do you clear a clogged pipe for the sink or tub?

Drain Cleaning

I've had success using Dawn dish detergent and hot water. Pour Dawn in the drain and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Follow with a kettle of very hot water and use a plunger. I have two plungers, one for sinks and one for the commode.


For a double sink, hold down the stopper in the other side to stop the air flow while plunging. For the bathroom sink and bathtub, you have to cover the vent hole.
