i clogged my kitchen sink today with cinnamon apple waffles.

a ruined a new pair of blue shorts with drano. they are now covered in pink spots.

then i got a broom handle stuck in the pipe (don’t ask).

i had to cut the pipe out and replace it. 

there are still dishes on the counter from breakfast.

after several frustrating hours, i fixed it.

i didn’t know what i was doing, but i did it all by myself. it doesn’t even leak! good as new. i’m proud. are you?

let’s look at some pretty pictures from this amazing designer as i drink a much needed glass of wine on my porch.

    Better your shorts than your skin!

    I used to get clogs with my garbage disposal (I have a double-sided sink), so I would plug up the other side and fill it with a little bit of water (so that I was sure of the seal), then I would pull out a small plunger that fit right over the drain on the other side and was dedicated for this purpose. I’d plunge away, and in anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes, the blockage would be gone. It was hard because I’m short and I had difficulty getting good leverage, but it was otherwise painless. After the clog moved, I’d unstop the other side, then put a stopper in the previously clogged side and fill the sink partway with cold water and then unplug to get the last bit of whatever was remaining out, using the force of the water rushing through. I got this tip on the advice of a plumber, actually. Just something to keep in mind if you have a clog in the future. But serious kudos to you for changing a pipe – I’d be way to scared to try that!

    Love your blog, I look at it quite regularly.
