You need to put a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar down the drain and you should start to see some fizzing. The process of these two elements working to break down the blockage should take up to five minutes.
When you start to hear the fizzing comes to an end, you then need to put boiling hot water down the drain to wash away any excess. All of the broken down and dissolved hair will be washed away and it should leave a fresher smell.
This is a really quick method using only one tool and will be finished in minutes. It might not get rid of all the hair immediately, but it will get rid of clumps which will get the water running through again.
You need to make sure you are wearing your gloves and you have some tweezers you are able to use for the removal. There can be some really nasty stuff that can get blocked down your drain and you do not want any of the bacteria touching your skin or fungi.
This is another method where you are using your own hand and a plunger to try and remove the build up. This type of method is usually used if it is quite a large amount of hair that has built up and needs more force to remove.
The snake is placed down the drain until you can feel the clog. You will see that there is a handle on the snake that you need to turn in order to pick up the clog. Then you can lift the snake back up the pipe to see if you have got it all.
