    1/2 cup baking soda, 1 C vinegar...let it set for 30 minutes, then pour 1 gallon of boiling water down after it. Works like a charm on my slow drain...hope it works for you!

    I've never tried anything homemade for this, but if it's hair that is down the drain, you can just open up your drain (just unscrew the stopper and pick up the gunk. It's gross (but it's all you though lol!), but it works and you don't need to do anything else. I use old tweezers to do this.

    if indeed it is hair, bs and vinegar will not dissolve it, they will just dissolve the dead skin and other stuff that's stuck down there.

    i pour a spoonful or two of lye down the drain and it dissolves whatever's clogging it. i make soap so i always have lye around.

    Well i just did the vinegar/bakingsoda thing.
    Now i just have to let it sit for 30mins.
    hopefully that works.

    if not, i'll try the lye..

    and hopefully i don't have to go in there myself but i guess you're right; it is all me lol

    thankss for the ideas!
