Drain clogs are sometimes unavoidable. We have to wash our faces, we have to clean our hair and unfortunately this leads to certain things going down the drain that shouldn’t. Your common everyday hygiene products could serve as cloggers and we will be here to save the day if you have an issue:
Feminine hair products and just hair product in general are not the best for your drain. They contain oils and we all know that oil and water do not mix! If they clump together with these other things, it creates a major blockage.
Makeup and Lotion
Makeup and lotion are some of the worst things for your drain. They are often based with creams and moisturizers that are actually designed to avoid water and moisture. A lot of makeups now are water resistant to avoid running when you sweat or tear. That resistance applies to the water going down your drain as well.
Toothpaste is another substance that is designed to not run away when it combines with water. And just like the previous substances, this is a bad mix for you and your drain. Clogging and blockages will occur if you are negligent with the amount of toothpaste you use. One little drop is plenty!
This is the straw that broke the camel’s back! Once a combination of these things gets caught in the drain, the hair that is washed down from a woman’s hair will clump and cause a ball in your drain. A man’s hair can do the same if it is long enough. This is the single most common drain clogger that we deal with.
