Works For Me- Unstopping the sink

Here's a tip some of you may already know. I learned it from a school maintenance person.

You can unstop the sink with an ordinary plunger. This won't work for grease clogs. You will still have to use the commercial plumbing solutions. Keep a separate plunger on hand just for the sink. (You don't want to use the one designated for the commode. Yuck!)

I have used a plunger to unstop my kitchen sink when I put too much in the garbage disposal, or when there is some item clogging the drain.

Works for Me!

I never would have thought of that. The info about "keeping a healthy septic tank" from our builder suggested using boiling water, too.
