No More Chemical War - Real Estate - Mountain Home, ID

Unclogging your bathroom drains may seem an odd topic for a real estate blog but I'm so impressed with a product my wife brought home that I think I'll give it (and my Showerwife) a plug.

"Zip-It" is a 24" long plastic doohickey with soft teeth (costs about $4 at Walgreens) that pretty much eliminates the need for expensive and caustic  chemical drain cleaners.  Just stick the device in the offending drain, swirl it around a bit and yank it out. 

I had a chance to test drive it this morning when my shower drain started gasping and gulping.  I'll spare you a graphic description of the gunk that I exhumed but the drain immediately gave a sigh of relief and started, well, draining.

Another blow struck for the environment - No longer will I wallow in guilt about dumping toxic chemicals into the water supply. Now where do I bury what I fished out of the drain?

Jan, That hair goes down below your tomato plants to provide nitrogen all year.

Jan,

It's a Jerry Baker trick. Seems the hair takes more than a year to break down and is high in nitrogen.
