There is no denying that drains are often littered with hair. If there is one type of clog that everyone is all too familiar with, it’s hair clogging up their drains. The reality is that even if you use a drain stopper, hair will likely make its way through and into your drain — clogging it up immediately. Ultimately, you can take specific preventative measures to avoid any clogged drains in the future — without stopping shaving altogether. Here are some helpful tips and tricks to effectively and efficiently remove hair from drains in the long run.
Baking Soda And Vinegar Is Great For Hair Removal
For the most part, household ingredients like baking soda and vinegar are an excellent remedy for any hair clogs. Having these two ingredients nearby is a great way to tackle any hair clog that you might be experiencing. Mixing some baking soda with regular vinegar is a great combination to remove hair effectively and efficiently from a drain.
Tweezers For Hair Removal
If you have difficulty removing hair from a drain, try using tweezers to get the job done effectively and efficiently. In fact, unlike thicker clogs, the thinning of hair can make it a bit more complex and complicated to remove. In reality, using tweezers to dig in there and remove hair from a drain is a great approach.
Using A Snaking Device
If you don’t currently own a snaking device, run, don’t walk to the nearest store, or order one online immediately. Snaking devices are life savers when resurrecting a drain from a hair clog most effectively and efficiently possible.
Removing The Entire Thing
Another technique to remove a hair clog is completely removing the entire drain. Removing the drain can help you clean it and effectively and efficiently remove the clog.
Getting The Professionals Involved
Unfortunately, sometimes your clog might be pretty intense — so much so that you might not be able to handle it on your own. Sometimes, the task is too large that it might be beneficial to call in the help of professionals to ensure that your drain works appropriately for many years.
