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.
