Money Saving Christmas Gift Idea #2 – Zip it Drain Cleaner

zip it drain cleaner money saving christmas idea 2When you find a product at the right price that really does the job – you’ve just gotta spread the word. If your sink or bathtub is not draining properly, the Zip it Drain Cleaner — a low-tech gizmo that costs about $3 — really does the trick. It’s available on amazon.com and at big-box home improvement stores.

In less than five minutes, you can use it to pull out all the gunk in the drain and have water flowing freely again. And it’s simple enough that anyone can do it.

It also makes a good, low-cost (weird, but) practical gift. Last year everyone in my family got one in their Christmas stocking! No more slow-running sinks for us!

    With two hairy dogs and a tendency to myself shed more than both of them I love the zip drain cleaner. It pulls out hair clumps that make it down the drain beautifully.

      Never looked for it in Walmart, but have seen it in places like Lowes/Home Depot. The cheapest and easiest way (in my opinion) was to order a 12-pack or so on Amazon, since I was giving one to everybody in the family for Christmas.

  12. So this is a plumbing snake? I like that they called them “zip”, because it sort of makes a zipping noise against the drain. Personally, I like using these snakes more than anything else, because they are quick, easy, and you don’t have to worry about chemicals in your pipes.

    I want that zip. I like that they called them “zip”, since it kind of makes a zipping commotion against the deplete. Actually, I like utilizing these snakes more than whatever else, on the grounds that they are speedy, simple, and you don’t need to stress over chemicals in your channels.
