If you’re a homeowner, I’m sure you would agree that we’ve all had to face minor plumbing issues. It’s usually a clogged kitchen sink, toilet, or bathroom sink; whatever the case, it sure is empowering when we can take care of the plumbing problem ourselves without calling a plumber. In years past we had our plunger that sat next to our toilet, we would reach for it every time there was a clog. Please don’t get me wrong; the plunger is one of the greatest plumbing inventions of all time, but as we are now well into the 21st century, there are so many new low-cost products and gadgets that can help with our plumbing issues. If you want to be more eco-friendly when clearing up your plumbing issue, this is perfect for you.
Have You Heard Of Eco-Friendly Drain Sticks
Here is a product that’s relatively new to the market; it’s called drain sticks. Drian sticks are a drain cleaning stick that, when placed in your drain it releases an enzyme that can breakdown food, grease, and bacterial growth created by phlegm, toothpaste, and other bathroom products. The sticks will keep your drains odor free — no more dredging out black slime from your drains. Just put the stick down the drain and let it do its job. It’s also safe on the skin and won’t hurt the environment. Perfect for the bathroom, kitchen, tubs, and more
Zip-It or AUSAYE Sink Snake Works Well At Removing Hair
Here is a neat little product zip-it. A zip-it is a small plastic strip with barbs pointing upward that fits perfectly down your drain to pull out hair and other materials. It weighs just over a couple of ounces and has a reach of twenty inches, and it cost less than six bucks. Other similar products have since hit the market that works as good or better. For example, the AUSAYE sink snake drain auger is very similar and is twenty-five inches in length and appears to be a little more durable. A five-pack is less than nine dollars. The product is perfect for clearing hair from a sink as well.
Charcoal Air Purifying Bags, The Ultimate Odor Absorbing Bags
Another product that’s causing a stir is Charcoal Air Purifying Bags. While I’ve never used the product myself, I will start. After going through hundreds of reviews, the product gets four to five stars. It’s an eco-friendly way of keeping your bathroom and kitchen smelling like it should. They are known as the ultimate odor absorbing bags. But most importantly, they can also absorb air-borne allergens, bacteria, pollutants, and moisture, whereas the average emits chemical fragrances, formaldehyde, ammonia, and chloroform gases.
Think About Changing Your Toilet Paper
If you want to take your eco-friendly status to another level, think about replacing your toilet paper. Most of the top-selling toilet paper brands made by Procter & Gamble, which only uses twenty percent of recycled paper to produce it’s product, according to a study published on Statista.
