If you have a clogged tub drain there are a few ways you can try to unclog it without having to use a snake. First you can try using a plunger. Put the plunger over the drain and push and pull the plunger up and down. This can sometimes loosen the clog enough to allow water to start flowing through the drain again.
If that doesn’t work you can try using a wire hanger. Straighten out the hanger and then make a small hook at the end. Insert the hook into the drain and try to snag the clog and pull it out.
Another option is to pour a cup of baking soda down the drain followed by a cup of vinegar. The baking soda and vinegar will react and create a fizzing action that can help break up the clog. Let it sit for a few minutes and then flush the drain with hot water.
If you’ve tried all of these things and you’re still not having any luck then you may need to call a plumber to come take a look.
