It’s a rather gross feeling when you step into the shower, turn it on and water almost immediately starts pooling at your feet. This means you have a clogged drain. It’s a common problem that has a few different solutions depending on the source of the clog. Here are five tips for preventing and fixing clogged drains.
Watch What Goes down Sensitive Drains
Older homes are especially prone to clogged drains thanks to out-of-date plumbing. Any liquids full of dust, dirt, pet hair and other substances should not be poured down sensitive drains. You can also use a shower hair trap to keep both human and pet hair from going down the drain.

Here’s what you can do in order to make this cozy room a tranquil place of contemplation.
Placing plants in your bathroom may sound like a weird idea, but this is nothing but a ridiculous misconception. The fact that we evolved from nature means that we are still very much a part of it, and as such, we need to embrace it as much as we can. Simply-put: plants make people feel good. Placing lush plants in your bathroom will freshen the air up and provide that tranquility that everybody needs.
As for meeting the necessary conditions for bathroom plant life, fret not, as a lot of houseplants actually “prefer” the bathrooms’ tropical conditions that include warmth, humidity and low light.
