If you’ve got a shower drain, kitchen sink drain, or bathroom sink drain that tends to back up, leading to standing water and improper drainage, you may be wondering what drain cleaning products you can use to get rid of tough clogs and deal with organic matter, food particles, hair and grease, and other common causes of drain blockages in pipes and septic systems.

We Recommend Green Gobbler For Minor Drain Clogs & Maintenance
If you have slow drains but don’t have any major clogs that need to be addressed, we highly recommend Green Gobbler drain cleaning products. While this cleaner is not ideal for clog removal, it can help with minor clogs, and regular application will clear away hair, food particles, and other debris that cause larger clogs.
Green Gobbler is an eco-friendly choice, and is free of harsh chemicals. You can use it in any drain, even in your kitchen sink and garbage disposal. It’s easy to use, too. Just dump the recommended amount into your drain, rinse it down with a small amount of water, and let it sit for 15-30 minutes.
Then, flush the drain with hot water to rinse away clogs and debris buildup. If your drains are still slow, you can repeat the treatment multiple times while letting it sit overnight, and flush your drain in the morning. This will maximize the clog clearing power of Green Gobbler.
For preventive maintenance, you can repeat this process every 2-3 months in kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, and showers.
Drain Clean Hair Unclogger Is Great For Tough Clogs In Kitchens & Bathrooms
Looking for a heavy-duty drain cleaner to use to remove any type of clog? We highly recommend Drain Clean Hair Unclogger. Despite the name, this drain cleaning product isn’t just meant to remove hair – it can handle tough clogs caused by food particles, hair, fat, grease, and more.
The key ingredient of this product is sodium hydroxide, also known as caustic soda. When it’s highly concentrated and activated with warm water, this caustic compound can quickly and easily dissolve protein (such as keratin, the protein in hair), as well as fats from soap, food grease, and other sources.
While we do highly recommend this specific product due to its highly-concentrated formula, you may not be able to find it near you. If that’s the case, we recommend that you buy any heavy-duty drain cleaner that contains sodium hydroxide – it will be similarly effective.
