Drain Cleaning Products to Avoid
Did you know that a lot of drain cleaning products currently on the market can actually do more harm than good? Made with hazardous chemicals like sodium hydroxide and sulfuric acid, some commercial drain cleaners can damage your pipes and irritate your skin, lungs and eyes.
So which drain cleaning products should be avoided? According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), Drano is very hazardous — not just during use, but even afterwards. “Drano Kitchen Crystals may remain in the drain after use, creating an extreme hazard. Using a plunger could cause caustic splashback,” advises the non-profit, non-partisan organization.
Liquid-Plumr can also be dangerous, reports Good Guide. Its harmful ingredients could cause breathing problems, skin irritation and more complications. This drain cleaning product is also said to be bad for the environment!
What should you do if you have a clogged drain? If you’re committed to finding a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach, then we urge you make it a nontoxic one. If you can’t remove blockages with a plunger, don’t fret. “Baking soda and boiling water or baking soda and vinegar will often do the trick,” suggests HomeAdvisor.
