What are some environmentally friendly methods of cleaning out a shower drain?

    The first move to try is a good old fashioned plunger. Another way that requires no chemicals is a plumber’s snake, but for safety reasons only a trained professional should do this. You can store-buy some bacterial enzymes that will eat away at the clog and are more green than lye or other harsh chemicals. But there are also some home remedies to try, like baking soda and boiling water, which will take care of a lot of back-up. If water is already clogging the area so that you can’t get the baking soda down there, there are other recipes you can pour in first: one includes washing soda, another vinegar.

    I highly suggest you snake your drain before trying any cleaning products. Odds are, once you snake it, whatever was clogging the drain will be pulled out and you wont need to try anything else. You can also try using a plunger. From there you can try vinegar and baking soda, salt and boiling water, or Powdered Detergent, Baking Soda, and Vinegar.
