I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

My top suspect is the Glamglow but in also wondering about the Origins black clay mask. I'm thankful that this particular incident was so easily solved but would like to prevent future issues.

This is absolutely frightening. I'd probably be freaking out a little bit, especially since I live in a very, very old house and it would mean something is broken! I hope you figure out the source of this quickly, and that it isn't too much of a pain to fix!!!

eww! 

 

And now this makes me wonder if I'll be doing the same thing in the near future since my husband doesn't know how to be sick in the toilet instead of the bathtub. >.<

 

If this happens, HE's going to be doing the pulling.

Our kids use the "sick bucket." Lots easier to dump that into the toilet. Bathtub huh? Oh man..... :smileyvery-happy:

Even as a nurse that deals with vomit daily, my reaction to this post was definitely "EEeeeeewwwww"

I love that gif! I use it all the time in another forum (hahahah). How do you post them here?? Just the link?

You can right click and do the "copy image" and then paste into the thread direct or use the "link to a picture" option on the side of the posting window and paste the actual link/url of the gif. I find that copy/pasting direct saves space because photo albums here only hold 1000 images and I had hit mine not long ago. Since then I've been going back and trying to clear some room, but most of what I upload are the copy/paste method.

Oh jeez, I didn't realize there was a limit on the album... that will become a problem at some point!

Yeah, I was surprised too since I used to link/post so many images from urls from Sephora in my posts. I went back through and deleted the image, but then would paste in the image so I could still have it present but not eat up my album space.

I didn't know until you mentioned it that we could copy/paste images, so I will have to start doing that!

Sounds like the Little Shop of Horrors movie, probably just a trapped seed.  For prevention, 

2 cups baking soda
4 cups boiling water
1 cup vinegar

Directions for Homemade Drain Cleaner:

Remove all water from the sink or tub and pour about 1 cup of baking soda down the drain. Make sure that baking soda makes it down the drain.
Next, pour about 2 Cups of boiling water down the drain. The baking soda mixed with boiling water dissolves the sludge and gunk in the pipe, even if you don’t see it happening. Wait a few minutes.
Now, pour another cup baking soda down the drain then add 1 cup of white vinegar and plug the drain immediately. If you’re unclogging a double sink, plug both drains. You’ll hear sizzling coming up from the drain and see bubbles foaming up.
When the bubbles have died down, add the remaining boiling water down the drain.
Repeat this process if necessary. This can be used as a monthly treatment helps prevent future clogs too; simply pour a cup of baking soda down the drains followed by boiling water.

Dumb question, but do you think work for hair stuck and what happens if you dont have like a "plug" for the sink. I have this olde school one where you just holes in the bottom and you can't really have a way to "stop or hold" water in the basin?

You would have to probably have to use wire to get it out If it is super clogged. They sell kits at Home Depot.

That's a pic of one of the "snakes" in a Drano kit. I believe most are made of plastic now as to not be too scratchy or damage the interior of pipes.

 

I use one of their kits and it worked very well (if anyone plans on snaking their pipes, please be sure to use the right formula and stick with time frames, the gel that helps dissolve and dislodge debris can be damaging if used too frequently). The key with the snakes is to be patient and not just force the whole thing down the drain (as much as you may want to do that), feed it in a little at a time, and work it up and down a bit so it can snag debris on the little hooks and then you can pull it out, clean it off and repeat the process. The snake did manage to loose a few of the plastic teeth during the process, but it definitely worked.
