Fixing a Slow Drain

What can I do to open a slow moving drain? It is in the bathtub, so probably mostly hair.

When our bathtub drain slowed up, my husband used the toilet plunger on it. Gross, but worked. This was after using Drano and boiling water a bunch of times. (10/01/2008)

What I do is to take the out the drain stopper, an easy process, pull out the gunk with needle nose pliers and replace the drain stopper. Much easier than taking the time to pouring stuff down the drain and not have it work. (10/01/2008)

Get a bent piece of wire and fish the hair out of the drain, it is usually near the top of the drain. You'd be surprised how much hair can accumulate there. (10/01/2008)

I recently read here on ThriftyFun that a plumber recommended pouring a bottle of "Nair" or another depilatory type hair remover (for women's legs) down the drain and leaving it sit for several hours because hair is usually the main culprit. You may have to do it twice. (10/04/2008)
