All that hard work, thrown down the drain.
A woman undertook the disgusting task of cleaning her sink drain, only to accidentally flood her kitchen.
Taking inspiration from a TikTok video of the home hack, creator @kandy_kitty87, who has over 64,000 followers on the app, decided to unscrew her sink drain to remove the caked-on grime.
In a video posted on the platform, which has garnered over 5 million views, the content creator showed off her dirty drain and poured white cleaning powder onto the drain and brushed away the large black and brown goo.
“I filmed this because I couldn’t wait to show everyone the before and after of this hack,” she told Newsflare. “I unscrewed the cap on my kitchen sink to ‘clean’ hard-to-reach places.”
But she had unknowingly “disconnected the sink hose” by loosening the nut that held everything together, “innocently” wiping the cleaning solution into her sink.
Then she made a big mistake: she turned on the water.
“I turned on the faucet to rinse completely and cleaned the gunge I had cleaned out of my sink,” she explained.
“After a few seconds, I felt my feet wet, and to my surprise, after looking into my kitchen cupboard, a real waterfall was coming out of the closed cupboard doors.”
She added: “Yeah, I flooded my kitchen! »
She admitted that the video “proves” that she has “no common sense” and that “you should never believe everything you see on the Internet.”
In the comments, a user who claimed to be a plumber recommended that if eager cleaners want to scrape off the mud they could remove the nut, but warned them not to run the water.
“9 times out of 10, when I go to a clogged sink, I remove the drain like she did, but instead of running water, you use your GLOVED fingers to remove the gunk, then put it back in drain and THEN run the water,’ the self-proclaimed handyman wrote.
When asked why anyone should clean out hidden dirt, they said, “Because if the dirt gets too thick, it will clog the drain.” Then you call a plumber and he will charge you $300 to clean it.
