Adventure: Lessons Learned in a Drain
So, we were having some troubles with the shower drain. If you have ever experienced this mess - it gets ugly and fast. Soap scum, human hair, dare I say dog hair, sitting water... Needless to say, it had probably been over 4-5 weeks and I was over it. And yes, I could wait for the manager of my building to finally send someone over - or I could have not waited around about 3 weeks ago, standing in water every shower - neither here, nor there now. Well, last night I decided to take care of business. I put my hair back in a headband, broke out all the cleaning supplies in the house and would not take no for an answer from that shower drain.
You guys, I will leave out the details including multi-purpose cleaner, a cut on thumb from an untwisted wire hanger, elbow grease behind the scrubber, and a total of 37 minutes from start to finish kneeling over the tub's edge...and just let you all know that I rocked that drain, got my hands dirty and fixed that clog! When the water started to rush down the drain, I truly felt like Clark Griswold on Christmas Vacation when he finally gets the lights to work and the hallelujah song plays in the background. Do note: I sang the song in my head as the water flowed.
