Clogs

No clogs, please!

¬†Ok, not that kind of clogs… ūüėÄ

Just two weeks into our sustainable lifestyle and we are already faced with a potentially toxic situation. The shower drain is clogged… again. Last time I used a sodium hydroxide declogger, which as you can imagine, is downright nasty. Now that we are all sustainable and all, that can’t be our choice option.

The¬†problem with¬†our shower drain is that it’s not possible to open it and remove the nastiness manually, so we do have to resort to some sort of declogger. So before I¬†resorted to our old trusted caustic stuff I thought I might try this recipe, with baking soda and¬†white vinegar, washed down with boiling water. Yeah, I tried it… So much for that, I noticed a little¬†bit ¬†of an effect but the bottom line is, we still got clogs (or clog).

Tomorrow its back to the store get the caustic stuff…¬†It’s a pity grandmas old trusted soda fell through, and not just literally. It was worth a try.
