HEADLINE HEALTH – According to Roto Rooter, Black Friday is their busiest day of the year.
All those house guests and all that food – we don’t have to draw you a picture.
And when no one can flush, everyone’s health and comfort are at risk.
- make the painful call to the rooter man, wait several painful hours, then write a painful check;
- grab a plunger, gloves, boots, mop, and disinfectant and slosh away; or
- try our favorite plumbing hack of all time and unplug your toilet in minutes for pennies.
This hack was reportedly invented by a busy bartender (an expert at mixing liquids to good effect) who did not have time or patience for options 1 and 2. We have used this hack several times – it works.
All you need is one item from under the kitchen sink (or bar) and any container that will hold water – bucket, wastebasket, pasta pot, whatever is handy.
