Help me clean my sink! It's almost completely stuck :/

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by SoulBldr7, Dec 1, 2011.

  1. Hey you guys, how goes it. This is actually my first post.

    I've been smoking for the last 4 or 5 years now. I live in the basement and have my own sink so I have resorted to using waterfall's a lot to smoke. However, I have lately realized that my sink is basically clogged with all the weed and resin have allowed to go down.

    I have tried to clean it without any results. I tried this thing I found online that says you should put vinegar, baking soda, and boiling water down the sink. I did that 2 or 3 times and it didn't really have too much of an effect.

    As you all know, resin is sticky as shit. Probably one of the stickiest things I have ever experienced. How the HELL do you get it out of the sink. I have some salt and ISO but I doubt that would really work if I just pour it down the sink since I can't really shake it.

    Anybody have an idea on how to get my sink clean??
  2. Draino or a pipe snake
  3. Can't you just disconnect the "elbow" part of the drain pipe and clean it out? :confused:

    Isopropyl does help to dissolve resin (which is why some people will opt for letting a piece soak in iso for an extended period of time rather than adding salt and shaking) so that may actually help. :confused_2:

    But then it might just build up again and get cause a clog further down the line... Not really sure on that one. :p
  4. Draino is like 6 bucks.
  5. Damn... All I can think of is draino. Or you can try pouring down a bottle or two of iso down the drain, it should be able to eat through the resin. If you do that, let it "soak" for 10 minutes or so, then pour down some just-boiled water, I don't see any reason it wouldn't work :) but it's not something I've tried, so I can't guarantee anything

  6. Doesn't always work, though. I had a pretty killer clog once that even Draino wouldn't fix and that wasn't even a clog made of resin. :p

    It's something to try, for sure, but it's always good to have a plan B. And C. And maybe D. :cool:
  7. Scrape your sink pipes and smoke it. The additives in the tooth paste residue will get you way baked.

    But honestly, just give it as much draino as you can and clean it with one of those snake things. I think that would be the best you could do
  8. 1. Disconnect the U-trap

    2. Add iso and salt

    3. Shake vigorously for profit

  10. How about you ask a real plumber?
  11. Thanks guys! I didn't expect to get so many responses so fast. I'll definitely try some of those out and 'll let you know how it goes.

    What am I supposed to tell a plumber though. I've been smoking weed and it's clogged up my sink? :cool: Plus, they charge over $100 a visit so yeah
