The easiest way to clean your drains

This Is Impressive

Impressive 2
We have seen our fair share of nasty stuff around here. I mean, we are in the business of pulling clogs out of sinks. We revel in videos and pictures of what our intrepid customers yank out of their drains. But, every once in awhile, we are presented with proof of the effectiveness of Zip-It that even we have a hard time looking at. So here i [...]

A Manly Unclogging

The Manly Housekeeper
The Manly Man over at The Manly Housekeeper manned up and, manning a Zip-It, manhandled a… clog. Man, that was a lot of “mans”. I didn’t have a stopped drain, and I needed something that would remove hair. I found my ideal product in Zip-It…. …I stuck the Zip-It into my bathroom sink and pulled out … well, it’s p [...]

Two Thumbs Up!

Two Thumbs Up!
Apparently Melanie at New Leaf Natural Home doesn’t hand out her “Two Thumbs Up Award” very often, which makes this review all the sweeter: This little gadget is a lifesaver. And less than $3, which means it gets one of my rare two thumbs up awards. If you have a clog in a sink or tub, and are not horribly squeamish (I’ve le [...]

The Pink Flamingo

The Pink Flamingo
What I really appreciate about this picture, beyond the huge and disgusting clump of hair that Kathy from Minnesota yanked out of her bathtub drain, is the Pink Flamingo body scrubber thing that was forced to bear witness to the whole lurid thing.

Amy Works, And How!

Amy Works, And How!
Amy over at AmyWorks.com has put together a very nice video on how to use the Zip-It. She gives wonderful, step-by-step instructions, taking you clearly and concisely through the process. Problem is, she didn’t find any giant clogs down there. Thankfully she took a picture to prove the point. Thank you Amy! (function(d, s, id) { va [...]

Little Blurry

Little Blurry
Now this picture is a tad out of focus. Just a tad. But I think it adds a certain “quick-grab-the-camera” quality to the shot. A lot like those pictures of the Loch Ness Monster that are a little blurry. You can just hear the photographer saying “Okay, I know the shot isn’t all that great, but tell me that ain’t [...]

Zip-It Sighting at L&M
What a lovely display.

Stocking Stuffer

Stocking Stuffer
The Christmas stocking. Hung so carefully by the chimney. But they don’t look nearly as good as when they are stuffed to overflowing with presents. And there in lies the trick – overflowing. To properly stuff a Christmas stocking, to elicit squeals of joy from it, you must load it with goodies that breach the upper lip of the sock [...]
