I woke up this morning to find a sink full of water in my downstairs bathroom. It was dirty water. It was disgusting. Couldn't find the Drano -- and I've heard that's not so great for the pipes or the environment -- so I did some internet research... Turns out baking soda, vinegar and boiling water are supposed to do the trick.
Guess what? I tried the baking soda & vinegar trick... It didn't work. So, I dismantled the pipes. Yuck! I tried to "snake" it out. No luck.
So you know what I did? I screwed the pipes back together, straightened up my mess and proceeded with my day. :-)
Now, while I know that my sink still needs de-clogging, I also know that sometimes you have to put the yucky stuff aside and get on with your life.
