Life in Crouch End, bikes, trying to be green and other randomness

Unblocking the kitchen sink

Picked up this tip on the Internet today, and it works a treat. I was going to unblock the sink with some nasty acid bought from a hardware shop – but there’ssome liquid leaked out of the bottle into the plastic containing it – i got a bit freaked. Some research later revealed this gem, to unblock a sink try boiling a full kettle, and then pouring the boiling water down the plug hole.

Absolutely magic! It’s not guaranteed to work for everything but it certainly feels alot better, and safer than mucking around with sulphuric acid…..
