Alkaline drain cleaners cause fats (including soap) to chemically break down in such a way that they can then be washed away, while hair and other proteins are also ripped apart. (Keep in mind, they’ll do the exact same thing to your flesh because drain clogs are often made out of the same stuff as people.)0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
