A few days ago I had an urgent need to drain a bathtub so I decided to get myself a quality, inexpensive tub drain cleaner. After reading a number of reviews online I decided to give one to my best friend who has had a leaky tub for several years.
The best thing I could do was make sure the bathtub drain cleaner that I purchased was one that I would be able to clean on my own if I ever needed to. A word of caution: Pure glycerine is a very harsh chemical to use and you will want to take all necessary precautions to use it safely. So, how do you stop a bathtub drain from stinking?
The best thing you can do is use glycerine solution as a deodorizer. To do this, you should pour a small amount of the solution down the drain and then allow it to sit for a few minutes. This will give your bathroom the odor removal it needs.
If you have children or pets, you will also want to consider using a baking soda solution on your bathtub drain. When the solution cools, you can pour it back into the pipe and allow it to sit until it is fully saturated. Then you can remove it from the drain by scraping the inside of the pipe.
Now that you know how to properly drain your bathtub drain you need to know what you should avoid doing to avoid problems in the future. While using a glycerine solution will reduce odors in your bathtub, try not to leave the solution on too long. Also, if you spill something on the sink while trying to clean the inside of the drain, rinse with clean water immediately.
So next time you have an emergency drain clog or a spill on your tub drain, do yourself a favor and get yourself a quality tub drain cleaner. It won’t cost much and it will save you a ton of time in the long run. And you may even get lucky and find yourself having people over at your house for dinner or a nice Sunday morning cup of coffee. !
I know that my best friend has a tub drain cleaner that she uses every week so whenever she has a bathtub drain clog or a spilled liquid on her sink she can use it to get the problem fixed quickly and efficiently. She even uses it to keep her home smelling great.
A great tool that is growing in popularity to solve drain problems is called the Hoover drain snake. With this type of snake you insert a hook at the top of the pipe and pull it down to flush out any clogs.
You’ll be amazed at how simple this little device can make things go when you want to have a smooth and trouble-free bathtub drain. !
