A stopped up sink or tub is a real hassle, but pouring toxic chemicals on them isn’t so wise. Not only will that pollute our waterways, but the products can cause chemical burns and are highly dangerous if ingested. Instead, try this: Baking Soda and Boiling Water (vinegar if needed): Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda into the problem drain, followed by 2 cups of boiling water. If that doesn’t clear the blockage, chase the baking soda with a 1/2 cup of vinegar and cover tightly, allowing the vigorous fizzing of the chemical reaction to break up the gunk. Then flush that with one gallon of boiling water.
