Dealing with Our Bathroom Blockages with Buster

Living in an old building that was converted to domestic use in the 1950s, we have various niggles in structure and plumbing.  One of the worst is the bathroom plumbing which gurgles and grumbles continually, and water regularly running slower than treacle.  We've tried all sorts over the years, putting down baking soda, white vinegar and a variety of commercial products, but nothing seems to work well in the long term.  But, we were recently sent Buster Bathroom Plughole Unblocker and it certainly seems to be working.

Like most busy households, our bath and wash basin certainly sees their fair share of work!  With Steve shaving (head and face), three little girls washing paint, mud, sand and Play-Doh covered hands, me washing my metre-long hair (no exaggeration, it really is), a fair quantity of bath products, and five cats playing in there (yep, we have water-loving cats!), it's no wonder our bathroom drains are running slowly!

Buster Bathroom Plughole Unblocker is specifically formulated to help busy family life, and is designed to tackle hair, bath oil, soapy sludge and toothpaste.  The formula dissolves hair and soap scum, helping water drain more freely, and cleaning all the nastiness from bathroom plugholes.  In fact, it is the only product on the market that is able to dissolve keratin, the main component of hair, both human and animal, the leading cause of blockages.

I was appalled to learn that the plughole blockages typically caused by hair and soap become a damp, dark, nutrient-rich breeding ground for bacteria.  Harmful pathogens like E.coli and Salmonella can quickly form, become airborne and pass through the plughole into our homes.  Just imagine all the bath toys, towels and even our toothbrushes covered in those - yuck!

According to Buster, the biggest bathroom blockage culprits are:

Hair: Even small amounts of hair can build up over time to create a matrix-like structure in the plughole, which then traps other culprits like...

Products: The chemical foaming agents 'sulfates' found in most commercial shampoos, shower gels, bubble baths and face washes build up to create a thick sludge, compounded by...

Bath oils: Your favourite bath treat may do wonders for your skin and wellbeing, but it will coat an existing blockage with a waterproof membrane, making it even harder to shift, as will...

Toothpaste: The fluoride in many toothpastes is thick and insoluble, and also carries food molecules which will kick-start bacterial growth in the breeding ground created above.  How lovely!

Bathroom blockages are unavoidable, especially in a busy family bathroom, but Buster Bathroom Plughole Unblocker can treat any blockage or slow running water effectively.  Act sooner rather than later as soon as you notice the water draining more slowly.  Use Buster to tackle the build up of hair, soap, oil and toothpaste, so you can get the water flowing freely again and bath-time back on track.

To use Buster Bathroom Plughole Unblocker you just pour the contents of one bottle slowly down the plughole and leave to work overnight.  If you have young children or pets make sure to supervise carefully, ideally shutting the bathroom door overnight or at least covering the drain with a bucket or similar.  In the morning, flush with plenty of hot water before using the sanitaryware again.

We found Buster Bathroom Plughole Unblocker incredibly effective, with the water drainage back to normal the next day.  I'm off for a bath!
