The most common solution for a clogged toilet is a plunger.
This works most of the time. But occasionally, a clog will be so stubborn it will not budge. Fortunately, there are several natural solutions to unclog difficult drains. Many DIY fixes do not require a trip to a hardware store, and you will likely find them in your kitchen.
The effectiveness of these solutions depends on what is clogging your drain. For example, serious clogs caused by grease buildup will likely require a professional plumber.
If you have a stubborn clog that neither a plunger nor a natural drain cleaner will fix, call Plumbers 911 Maine. You will connect to a local licensed contractor that can resolve the issue.
Baking soda and vinegar
This handy science trick can be especially useful for unclogging bathroom sinks. Pour a mixture of equal parts vinegar and baking soda down the drain. This will start a chemical reaction that hopefully pushes out the grime and gunk blocking your drain. Let it sit for a few minutes to completely work its way through your pipes.
Other methods include Borax, salt, vinegar and baking soda. Each uses some combination of these products to fix drain problems.
Once the mixture has coursed through your pipes, pour a kettle of boiling water down the drain and add a few squirts of dish soap for good measure. This works great for minor grease clogs.
