Hair Clogs Can Be Treated Without Chemicals

You’ll eventually come across a hair clog in one of the drains in your bathroom after a while. The clog may come in your shower or sink. Sometimes your toilet might develop such a concern. These issues can be significant depending on the quality of the clog, especially if it has been building up for a while.

Whatever the cause or concern may be, a hair clog can be a hassle to bear with. But you can treat hair clogs without chemicals. We at Lasiter and Lasiter Plumbing want you to know that a hair-based clog doesn’t have to stick around forever. The clog can be cleared out without having to use anything that might potentially harm someone.

The Magic Materials

You don’t need caustic chemicals that could potentially destroy your pipes and drain system if used improperly. Baking soda and white vinegar are both useful in the process. Baking soda is an alkaline material, while white vinegar is acidic. But when used together, they help to neutralize the impact of excess hair.

Apply Baking soda to the drain area at the start. They apply vinegar in the second step. A cup should be enough for both items.

You may hear a fizzing sound as the two materials get together. The fizzing entails the two materials consuming old compounds on the inside. The two ingredients will destroy the dead hair. 

The effort may require you to repeat the process a few times. But the safe compounds make it to where no one will be at risk of harm due to anything splashing out of the area.

What If the Problem Isn’t Resolved?

There might be cases where the treatment you use for the hair-based clog in your bathroom isn’t working as well as hoped. The failure to work could be due to the hair being too dense or otherwise not moving out as well as it should.
