DIY: Unclogging Bathroom Sinks

August 21, 2013

If you think about it, a lot of stuff goes down the bathroom sink everyday – toothpaste, shaving cream, soap, and who knows what else! It makes sense that you may get a clogged drain once in a while. We’ve talked about tips for unclogging your toilet and bathtub, so today we’re going to give you some tips on how you can unclog your sink with everyday materials.

The first method requires two things that you may already have: baking soda and vinegar. Wait, aren’t these ingredients? Yes, they are, but they have a host of other uses too! All you need to do is pour a half cup of baking soda down the clogged drain followed by a cup of vinegar. Leave it for 30 minutes before pouring hot water down the drain as well.

If that doesn’t work for you or if you’d rather try something else first, you can always try a plunger. This won’t be the same plunger that you use for your toilet. It should be a bit smaller, a better fit for a sink. Add a small amount of water into the sink for better suction before using the plunger.

If you’re still not having any luck, you may need the help of a home drain cleaning professional.
