DIY Solutions using Common Household Items to Try First

We understand that it’s trouble when you have a blocked sink all of a sudden. Seeing dirty dishes piled up on your kitchen sink or waiting a long time for the water to drain in your bathroom sink is not a situation everyone wants to be in. So, before picking up the phone and dial 02 9986 1234, try these simple solutions first:

  1. Boiling Water – the most straightforward and most accessible solution compared to others. Boil water using a Kettle . Then, pour boiling water into the sink and try and get all the water directly into the plug hole as its best not to get the boiling water on your basin. If the water doesn’t go down, wait for the sink to cool and repeat the process until successful.

2. Vinegar and Baking Soda – pour at least one cup of baking soda followed by the same amount of white or apple cider vinegar to the drain. Afterwards, wait for the bubbles to subside and put a plug in.  Run water after 15 minutes to test if the drain is clog-free. Repeat the process if necessary.

3. Coat Hanger – every household has this, but always make sure to use this with caution. The hanger wire can scratch the pipe. Straighten the coat hanger and use it to reach out the gunk and either push it down or pull it out. Also try and use the end of the coat hanger as hook to pull out the hair blocking the drain.

4. Plunger – another common household item. Place the plunger on the drain and starting plunging many times. Once you hear that the suction cleared the Blockage, pour warm water to flush the drain.
