Use liquid drain cleaner

We know, it isn’t fair. It doesn’t make sense. That store-bought drain cleaner is supposed to help with plumbing clogs. That’s the whole reason it exists! The thing is, liquid cleaners you pour down the drain are caustic.

Sure, they’ll eat away at a clog, but they’ll eat away at everything else, too. Everything including the metal that makes up the pipes themselves. Drain cleaners can warp pipes or even cause leaks. It’s not worth it. Stick with a plunger, a snake, or a Green Apple Mechanical NJ plumber. You’ll be glad you did.

Pour coffee grounds down the kitchen sink

Coffee grounds seem like they were designed for the express purpose of clogging pipes. They’re sticky. When they’re wet, they get heavy and clump together. When they clump together, they become surprisingly dense. They can retain a surprising amount of water. If they stay wet, they stay sticky, heavy, and clumped together.

Sounds bad, doesn’t it? Donpour coffee grounds down the sink. Just don’t do it. Just throw them out instead. We don’t even love to see little flecks of stray coffee grounds end up in the drain. Try using a paper towel or washcloth to collect stray grounds before they can flush away. It’s a pain, but if you don’t deal with grounds now, the clog they make will be a worse pain.
