Clear blocked drains with these easy-to-use clog-busters, down to $6 for three

Say 'hairsta la vista' to expensive visits from the plumber: 'You would not believe what came up.'

You know that sinking feel when the water in your sink isn't, well, sinking? We've all been there. Clogs and backups can be an expensive business, but it doesn't have to result in a call to the plumber. The Forlivese Drain Clog Remover lets you easily pull all of that unmentionable gunk out of your drains and helps eliminate clogs, stinky smells and so much more. Right now, you can get a three-pack on Amazon for a steal.

It might be a little (okay, a lot) gross, but it's better than spending $200 on a plumber.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

According to Forbes, you could see a cost between $125 and $250 just to unclog a drain if you hire a professional plumber. That's an insane amount, especially when you get three of these clog-busters for around $2 each. That's over 55% off their usual price. After all, there's a reason more than 10,000 people bought this set in the past month.

Why do I need these? 🤔

The old adage says that only two things in life are guaranteed, but we propose adding "clogged drains" to Benjamin Franklin's famous proclamation. It happens, no matter how hard you might try to avoid it. Hair, dirt and other grime can build up and result in slow water flow. Sure, you can call the super-pricy plumber — or you can just use one of these drain cleaners to snatch the clog and pull it free.

These spikey sludge-grabbers are 25 inches long, which is more than long enough for most household drains. Just slide it down inside the drain and pull it back out — and behold the offending gunk ball that was causing your sink to back up. The hooks on the side will catch hair and other things and pull it all loose. They're also an environmentally friendly option since they are a chemical-free de-clogging solution and the cleaners themselves are made of recycled plastics.

Since you're getting three of these per pack, you're paying just a couple of dollars per cleaner. Not bad at all, especially compared to the price of a professional plumber. This will even work on a kitchen sink drain. It doesn't necessarily have to pull something out. As long as the snake can break through the clog and open your drain's water flow, most issues will sort themselves out. We're talking to you, bacon grease.

What reviewers say 💬

Over 12,000 people love these cleaners. After all, it's better to avoid plumber calls. And plumbers' cracks.

Pros 👍

One shopper waxed poetic on the crud. "When I snaked those drains, you would not believe what came up. OMG. It's a miracle. Drain instantly clear...no need to call a plumber now," said one satisfied shopper.

Of course, clean up afterward isn't always easy. "I will say, removing your hair from the snake is not a fun task. Pro tip get some gloves. And don’t try to pull the hair down away from the handle, slide the hair up towards the handle and it comes right off!" advised one fan. (Might we suggest the CoolJob reusable rubber gloves?)

"Oh my goodness, I love this product. My sink had been clogged for a while and I finally purchased this because it seemed easy to use and had great reviews," raved one shopper. "It pulled out so much hair and my drain is no longer clogged. Literally wanted to use it on every single drain in my house."

Cons 👎

Users suggest taking the sink's drain cap off first. "The only downside is that it can be difficult to twist inside the drain if you do not remove the sink's drain cap first, but it is still doable."

If you're a bit squeamish, prepare yourself before using this tool. "It is extremely gross when you pull everything out but worth it," one shopper said.

At 25 inches long, these are sturdy enough to punch through tough clogs and even work around bends in the pipe.
