Home Remedies For Clogged Drains

Run Hot Water

Just before emptying your dishwater, run the hot water for a few moments to warm the pipes and prevent the grease in your dishwater from sticking to them and congealing.

Clogged drain pipes will seldom annoy you if you do this regularly.

Hot Salt Water

One of the oldest home remedies for clogged drains. You can keep sinks, drains and tubs free of grease and disagreeable odors by pouring ordinary hot salt water through them once a week.

Plunger

When we think of a plunger, we usually think of unclogging a toilet. However, a plunger is one of the most effective home remedies for clogged drains in general. It usually works immediately.

Of course I would have a designated plunger for sinks and a separate plunger for toilet work.

If it is a real stubborn clog, you can set a pail underneath the U-shaped trap and unscrew the cleanout plug. Use a bent coat-hanger to dig out the greasy clog.

Plumbing Snake

The last resort of home remedies for clogged drains, rent a plumbing auger or "snake".

It will probably be much less expensive than hiring a plumber and it usually will solve the toughest of clogs. In fact, the plumbers main tool for clogs is the snake.

When choosing a plumbing snake to work with, look for one that has a length of about 15-20 feet and a diameter of about 3/8 inch.
