How to clean hair out of your drain?

When it comes to clogging the drains, nothing can beat your hair.

To save your wallet, we lay down ways you can solve this issue at home effectively and efficiently. It all starts the minute you notice water taking a bit longer to drain out. 

  1. Vinegar and plunging Solution: The most efficient solution involves pouring dish soap, vinegar, and baking soda in your clogged drain a series that their chemical reaction causes fizzing in it. This is followed by pouring boiling water and plunging. Depending upon how stubborn your hair clog is, you may get to repeat the process once in a while.
  2. Tweezers Solution: What is more effective than plunging the drain? Pulling the hair out. Yes, I know it sounds gross but it is what t is. All you will need to do is open the drain stopper, use your flashlight to locate the clump of hair, use needle-nose pliers to reach and pull it out. Make sure to drain some hot water before putting the stopper back into its place.
  3. Zip-it tool Solution: If you are reluctant to manually clear your drains, the Zip-it tool was made for you. The tool is specially designed to help you with drain problems.
