Learn how to make your own “mini-snake” with four easy steps!
Step 1: Simply bend several individual wires (not strands) out in different directions from the center of the cable so that when rotated, the strands will snag hair in the clogged drain.
Step 2: Fish cable as you would a drain snake, twisting as you push gently to advance into and around elbows, etc.
Step 3: When you feel the clog, just twist the cable until you feel some resistance and withdraw slowly to extract hair.
Step 4: Repeat until the big wad comes out, maybe two or three times.
