Most women would not attempt this... in fact most men I know would say "No Way!"
I'm not talking about cleaning the house... which I did... a little. Or, doing the laundry... which I did... a lot! Or even cooking great quantities of food to feed my teenager this week... which I did... and it was delish!
Somewhere in the middle of all THAT going on, I decided it was time... once again... (cue the scary organ music)... to clean out the bathroom drains! And I'm not talking about pouring a little Drano down 'em... tried that a thousand times and not only is it expensive, but it just doesn't work! I get so tired of slow drains that I actually just resort to taking them apart and cleaning them out... BY HAND!!! It's so gross, I can't tell you!
You have to take off the elbow thingie under the sink and then using a long stick, I push paper towels down the drain and the gunk that comes out is... well... it really shouldn't be described! Then, I take the elbow thingie and I clean it out with an old toothbrush. Then, I put it all back together and pray I don't have any leaks.
So, I did this to two sinks this weekend and I'm thinking I deserve a gold star... or at the very least, a gold plunger! I'm thinking that I missed my calling to be a plumber...
