How to Unclog a Clogged Drain

Plunger used to unclog drainThere are several ways to unclog a plugged drain. You can also call a plumber. These methods may help you clear a clog in a matter of minutes. To start, boil water and pour it slowly down the drain. If you feel resistance, twist the coil and push the snake deeper into the drain. It may take several attempts to unclog the drain. After the water cools, pour vinegar and baking soda down the pipe. Wait half an hour and repeat the process if necessary.

If you cannot get rid of the clog by hand, you can also try to use a plunger. You should keep the plunger on the drain for several minutes, then remove it. Then, you can use a snake, which is a long, thin wire. The bendy end of the snake feeds into the drain and twists around to entangle the blockage. If you can't find a snake to use, you can dispose of the blockage by pouring hot water into the drain.

Another way to clear a clogged drain is to pour boiling water down the drain. This can be done by mixing vinegar with baking soda. The mixture will work by breaking down the accumulated residue in the drain. It is best to allow the mixture to sit for at least 15 minutes before attempting to unclog it. It is important to pour the mixture properly, as you don't want to end up with a bubbly mess.
