Not at all nuts - far from it dear Gary, your advice is always excellent and
your posts well worth reading. The poster is obviously a troll and I am
beginning to think Choreboy, the friendless poster from this group is too.
He followed me to the cooking chat group where I had hoped to meet you for
some advice on my doughboys and while there he dished out some insults. I
have put both of them in their places so hopefully they will behave in
I've had the best luck with a long plastic gizmo from Home Depot - about
$2-3. It's flexible and has jaggysnaggy teeth (more like barbs) on it.
It's about two feet long and you push it down the drain as far as you
can and pull it back up. Wouldn't believe the cruddy hair clogs it
hauls out. Especially afte my long-haired son has visited.

If you're squeamish, I wouldn't reccomend this.
It really pulls out some nasty $h!t.
If you have to use a chemical liquid, I've had good luck with chlorine
bleach. Just poor it straight in and let stand for a few hours
before flushing with water. It does seem to work on hair clogs.
In my old apartment, the janitor would use sulfuric acid in the
bathtub drain for those situations in which Draino did not work. The
stuff was so strong it clear the drained ( and who knows what else).
The white porcelin of the bathtub was temporarily turned black because
of the fumes.
I have this tool, too. I won't go back to using liquids.
One caveat, as Melba mentions... "Cruddy hair clogs." You won't believe
the amount of detritus washed down that those strands were able to hang
onto. You also will be shocked at the ease it whips about as you're
trying to clean the tool. Be sure to wear gloves, clothing that you
don't mind getting spattered, and eye protection.
