  • It makes it tough to work up soap lather, turning simple cleaning and showering into hassles.

So much material can go down the drains in a homdrain-with-chain-pluge that may lead to stopping them up that we could make a list of drain clog sources that was just about small plastic pieces from toys and packaging material.

For this list, we’re going to limit ourselves to only the four most common reasons drains might clog. We’re focusing only on clogging that occurs right down in the drain itself, not sewer line issues such as root infiltration.
