How To Unblock Your Sink

Sinks are very common to become blocked or have some form of drainage problems. Today, we are going to share with you some tips on how to unblock your sink.

The first option you should try is using a plunger. This sucks the air out of your drain, with the hope of dislodging the blockage. This is the best and safest way to cure a blockage without chemicals.

Alongside a plunger, sometimes a burst of water can help to unblock your sink. Turn your tap onto full blast down your drain to see if this will dislodge the blockage. This can however make the blockage worse and bigger.

Sometimes neither of these two simple options will work, but they should always be your first resort. If these fail, we recommend using some drain unblocked chemicals. These can be brought from local supermarkets or made with white vinegar and baking soda. They work by breaking down the blockage allowing water to drain freely.


Why Shouldn’t Food Be Put Down Your Sink?

People continue to put scraps of food down their sinks, but it is simple, no scraps of food should be going down your sink. Today, we are going to share with you why certain foods should not be put down your sinks.

To begin with, meats, no scraps of meat, no matter how small they are, should be sent down your sink drain. Meats tend to become stringy whether they are cooked or raw. Meaning they can become tangled, causing a major blockage which is not needed.

Fruit skins are another common food put down our sinks. However, fruit skins are tough and therefore very hard to breakdown. Meaning they may become lodged in our pipes again causing an unneeded blockage.

Finally, flour. With most of us being unsure with how to dispose of unwanted flour, the sink seems to be the best option. However, when mixed with water, flour becomes a glue-like substance. Making it likely to cause a major blockage.
