The Wrath in the Bath

How to Unclog
a Bathtub

We get it. Clearing a bathtub or clogged shower drain is nasty. But, wading ankle deep in your own dirty shower water isn’t much better. Ready to learn how to unclog a tub? That’s the spirit.

Step one: Remove & clean stopper & strainer

The drain stopper is the piece that plugs your drain (on purpose). The strainer is the piece that probably resembles a mini pasta strainer. Wearing rubber gloves? Remove both pieces and give them a good clean.


Step two: Anyone got a stick?

Put on your surgical mask and grab a drain stick. Push down through the clog. If your stick bends, keep pushing so that it follows the pipe. Bring out any gunk and toss it in the garbage.


Step three: Liquid-Plumr® Full Clog Destroyer

Want to really lay that clog to waste? Pour Liquid-Plumr® Full Clog Destroyer™ down your shower or bath drain. It’ll dissolve that tough clog, prevent new ones and show bad odor the door. Use as directed.


Step four: Testing, testing 1-2-3

After removing the blockage, test to see if the clog remains. Turn on the faucet and see if the water drains quickly and easily. If you still have a clogged bathtub, you may need to call in a professional.


Step five: Stop clogs before they start

The best cure for a clog is prevention. Pouring 2 cups of Liquid-Plumr® Full Clog Destroyer™ down your drain monthly can keep you from a slow draining tub or worse.
