Throughout the home, you are likely to find several items and tools that can be used to help clean out your clogged drains.

To repair a clog in the kitchen sink, one of the simplest tools you can use is a wire coat hanger. After straightening out the hanger, use the hook to carefully pull out the source of blockage in your drain. After you have cleared most of the drain way, you can flush out any remaining dirt and buildup with hot water.

Some additional at-home remedies to clean out your drain are baking soda, vinegar, boiling water, sodium hydroxide, and salt. Dish detergent can also be used to help clear up any toilet drain clogs. Using these items and some standard household tools can help clear out your drain and prevent any serious buildup of dirt and grime.

For tougher, more resistant drain clogs, some additional tools may be needed. A wet/dry vac can be used to help clean your drain of any dirt buildups that may be stuck in your drain. In some cases, calling in a professional with a drain cleaning snake may be the best option for your drains.
