In response to Re: "Complete Idiot" Why does my powder room drain stink?
: I was cleaning my powder room and cleaning my powder room and it still smelled bad. I accidently left the drain shut and it stopped stinking. It then dawned on me that duh the powder room or the toilet didn't smell bad, it was the drain.

: What can I do about this?

: Thanks!

Dear Fluffy

Believe me, you are not the only idiot ! I have had the same problem in a house that we just moved into over the weekend. I actually wake up at night because of this smell.

A friend of mine suggested that I use a half a cup of caustic soda per drain, leave it for 5 minutes and follow up with a kettle of boiling water. Repeat till smell disappears. If it's not that bad it should take the smell away after the first treatment. If not, repeat again.

Let me know if you can still hear it honking !!

Best regards out of South Africa
