Most clogged drains get the chemical treatment. Although chemicals can be very effective in removing blockages, they sometimes only temporarily take care of a problem. Or they don't take care of it at all, which leaves you with pipes full of toxins. First off, try a safer homemade concoction: mix one cup of baking soda, three cups of boiling water, and pour it down the pipes. If this doesn't work, there are many fixes available to you before applying a toxic chemical agent or calling the plumber. Here are some quick tips:
