Cleaning the drain: these home remedies will clear it up again

If the drain in the sink, bathroom or shower is blocked, you can clean it with simple household remedies. We'll show you how to clear the drain again.

Cleaning the drain with home remedies: Here's how

Above all, fat and lime collect in the drain pipe over time, so that the water only drains off slowly or, in the worst case, not at all. Simple home remedies and a little patience can solve the problem.

  1. Prepare 4 tablespoons of baking soda, half a cup of vinegar essence and half a liter of hot water. Instead of baking powder, you can also use baking soda or washing soda.
  2. Pour the baking powder down the drain and immediately pour the vinegar essence afterwards. The two substances quickly begin to react with one another, you can hear a slight bubbling.
  3. If the noises have subsided after a while, pour the hot water down the drain. This loosens the dirt.
  4. If you haven't had too much success, try the process again.

This is how you clear the drain with a suction cup

If the drain does not free itself, you have to help with a little pressure. For this you need a suction bell or, if necessary, an empty water bottle.

  1. Fill the sink, shower or bathtub with water until it is level with the suction cup.
  2. Now seal the overflow. You can cover small holes with your finger; large holes can be sealed with a damp cloth.
  3. Now push the plunger vertically towards the drain and repeat the process a few times.
  4. If you use an empty plastic bottle, simply place it on the drain and push the air out of the bottle. For large drains, cut the opening of the bottle to fit the drain.
  5. If the suction cup doesn't help, you can carefully insert a spiral pipe into the drain.
