Anyone here know about unblocking sinks? Mine was getting clogged and the water going down slowly, so I stuck down a bottle of Mr Muscle for an hour. Followed the instructions on the back of the bottle but it had made it MUCH worse. It is now completely blocked - presumably the Mr Muscle stuff is now sitting on top of the original gunk. What do I do? Do I have to call a plumber or is it something i can fix myself?
Sorry for such a boring post. Oh, there are times when i wish I had a man around the place
Not much experience - but what about boiling water from a kettle straight down? Not sure if it will disolve the mr muscle or not i'm afraid, but everytime I have a problem with my sinks I boil a kettle and pour away...
Can you poke anything down to try & mix up Mr M with the gunk ? Do you know where its blocked - if its the U bend (& you are brave) you could try & take it off (v carefully & with gloves on with the Mr M in there too)
I STARTED with a boiling kettle and it did help a bit. Then put down the Mr Muscle and am now loath to keep adding liquid when it is refusing to go down. Maybe I'll start off giving it a poke with something, then if it shifts down try some boiling water, then if that fails have a cry
You woudn't believe I was raised by a committed feminist, could you? It worked so well with my brothers, who can do EVERYTHING (cook, clean, put up shelves, fix computers, mind babies), whereas I tend to break down in hysterics at the slightest domestic challenge. Any plumber/electrician/handymaqn who enters this flat immediately sizes me up (like a shark scenting blood) and charges double the usual rate. I feel like Red Riding Hood in the forest...
Soupy, I will give it a go. [Said bravely, and feeling like being sick/bursting into tears] This always happens on the worst days, doesn't it? I'm seven months pregnant and off sick with a horrible vomiting bug. I am on my own tonight. This is the LAST thing I feel like tackling but I will be very brave and grown-up and tackle it (just as soon as I've eaten some pizza and a slice of cake ).
thanks for advice, everyone. I'm going in... I may be gone some time.
