Venturing beyond laundry

In the shower this morning I noticed that the drain was running seriously slow. I asked Gameboy, who conferred and suggested picking up some Drano next time we do a grocery run. I made a noncommittal sound and turned to the internet.

There are a multitude of recipes, but most go back to baking soda, vinegar, and hot water. Tonight I'll give it a try and report tomorrow.

Ooo.... my shower is getting a little slow to drain as well. I have been a little scared to try the homemade fixes though. If this works let me know and I will try it too.

I do this 1 - 2 times a month. I pour in the baking soda and then the vinegar. Let it sit and do it's fizzy thing for about 1/2 and hour. It gets all the goo loosened up! Then flush with super hot water. If you have long hair you should take the drain plug, screen, or whatever you have, off and remove the hair. Hair doesn't break down, it must be removed. Open a hanger and make a hook at one end and use that to fish it out. Be prepared for the yuckies. Have fun!!
