When house cleaning, hot water is another excellent way of opening clogged pipes. We all know that our dish soaps or shampoos or soaps contain some percentage of oils. When they continuously drain down the pipe, especially during the colder months the oils start to harden and clog the pipes. During house cleaning, these clogged pipes can be opened with a number of methods, but the most reliable and easy method is by pouring in a pot of boiling hot water down the drain. This will melt all the oils and give you a clean unclogged pipe in no time.  

3.  Plunger

When house cleaning, you can even use a plunger to unclog the pipe. It can remove whatever is stuck in the pipe and unclog it very easily. A plunger should be available at home at all times, so that whenever you have to unclog a pipe you can do it with ease. Sometimes other methods of unclogging the pipe also require the use of the plunger.  

4.   Boiling water and dish soap

When house cleaning, another useful method to unclog the pipe is by using the dish soap and boiling water. In this method you require ½ cup of dish soap pour it down the clogged pipe then let it sit for 15 minutes, this will soften whatever is stuck down the drain.
