Clogs in Drain Pipes: Important Notes for Women

Housewives often tend to be careless when pouring down the drain leftovers, excess ingredients, causing the sink to get clogged with food waste.


After cleaning up, the drainage system is usually where housewives use to “handle” the leftovers in meals without knowing that being subjective will cause blockage and create an environment for germs to thrive, which is very harmful to health.

Take care of it, while avoiding absolutely throwing the following into the drainpipe.

Cooking oil

This is a substance that many housewives think is harmless and often pour into sinks. This is quite dangerous because the drainage system will quickly become clogged by the amount of oil sticking to the surface of the walls. Although pouring a lot of water to flush the oil away, it will not help if the process of pouring oil is too much and frequent. Used cooking oil, if poured into the kitchen sink, is also a breeding ground for many bacteria, not to mention that it will pollute the environment if discharged outside.

Leftover rice

If using a small amount of water to flush away leftover rice, it will cause the rice grains to still remain, clump together and clog the pipes. In addition, the rice grains sticking to the surface of the pipes for a long time will cause a sour and foul smell that will have a significant impact on the respiratory system.


While cleaning, many housewives often casually pick up a few strands of hair and throw them into the drain. If this is done regularly, it will make the drainage pipe of your house “irreparable”. Because hair is difficult to decompose and is not affected or eroded by water, so the drainage pipe is difficult to handle and must be replaced.

Don’t be lazy to clean up quickly, throw the above things in the trash, brush the sink properly, and flush the water down the drain regularly will not only help keep it clean but also protect the health of you and your family.
