Going on a Treasure Hunt

How to Get a Ring Out of the Drain

Skydiving, half-pipe skateboarding, tightrope walking — there’s no greater thrill. Unless you’ve dropped a ring in the sink, that is. Don’t panic. Here’s how to fish out a ring:

Step 1: Turn off the water!

Don’t go running for a fishing rod and tackle just yet. Quickly turn off the tap if it’s still running or you could wash your ring into the abyss.

Step 2: P is for “Phewf!”

The P-trap under your sink may have kept your ring closer than you thought. By removing the P-trap you may find your ring inside. Consider seeking professional advice if needed.
