Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IronKitten I'm SHOCKED that this actually worked!
My bathtub was completely backed up. I was a little weary of using another liquid drainer after a previous product failed miserably, but I didn't want to keep hassling my apt mgr either. So thought I'd ask the Home Depot peeps for their recommendation and came home with this. After manually draining all the water from the tub with a bucket, I carefully poured this product down the drain. I was somewhat concerned that the 2 cups of drain opener would overflow onto my newly refinished tub and ruin the finish and so I slowly poured directly down the drain. I would've stopped before it overflowed out onto the tub, but to my surprise it all poured down. Waited the minimum 1 hour before carefully pouring hot water from the tap down the drain. Again, I poured slowly so that it wouldn't overflow. At first it didn't seem to want to flow, but after a couple minutes, I noticed the water slowly draining. I continued pouring hot tap water and all of a sudden I heard a pop, and the water just drained. SO HAPPY and SHOCKED that this actually worked!! And on the first try too. Now I have the rest of the drain opener for maintenance. I'm gonna tell everybody to use this! It was priced around the same as the other drainers, but definitely worked the best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1hdrvwr If the kitchen sink clog is so bad that only a drain auger/snake will clear it...
... because the block/clog is probably further down the line, than Instant Power Hair & Grease Drain Opener will get water flowing down the drain!
Every once in awhile the sink drained slowly... oh well, not a problem, we'll live with that. THEN the sink was obviously clogged as it wasn't draining at all.
Thinking that a snake would be needed to clear that clog, we drove to Home Depot (on Christmas Eve) and purchased Scotch Corp's Hair & Grease. Whatever was in those pipes did NOT stand a chance to this product.
Draining again on Christmas day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Use this 1ST!!!! if plunging doesn't work.! Simply Awesome product!
Pour in drain.. wait 6-8hrs if bad bad clog. Flush with boiling water . A quick plunge if no immediate results. I cried tears of joy.
Before I tried this I used.. Zep Liquid Plummer Drain opener..DID NOT WORK!
I use baking soda/vinegar..DID NOT WORK!
I bought a snake/auger from home depot. DID NOT WORK!
I called Roto Rooter ($255 to snake & shop vac the water out). he said "20% chance that it would work" Then Roto rooter said that they would have to cut the pipe open because snake couldn't reach the clog...additional $500..DID NOT PAY. told him to leave & I cried.
Then I saw the reviews of this product. $11.00 worth a shot
Hair & grease drain opener.. .IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JM1385 Great product!!!
I poured two cups in drain and the next morning ran hot water. One application in shower and the drain works like new in 75 year old plumbing! $5 investment saved a plumber's call. I could not be more satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beth Oh, It works! $10.98 versus a $90.00 service call...your choice.
Quick and to the point. 40 year old house--general plumbing issues from time to time (overflowing washer, slow draining bathroom sink, etc....). If you have a small bathroom sink, might I suggest a little $3.00 plastic mini snake and it will help. For a bathtub...it doesn't work. Was not happy with a bathtub of water this morning.
Went to the Home Depot, saw it, read it, and liked 'if it doesn't work, we'll refund your money...' I held onto my receipt. I poured a generous amount into the freestanding water from the morning bath and left out of the bathroom. A good 10 minutes later, I heard a belch from the bathtub, I kid you not! This stuff works! Buy this! It is that good!

I had a huge clog somewhere in my 50 foot kitchen drain pipe that defied clearing with my 15 foot snake. So I decided to try this stuff before I went out and rented a longer auger. My local Home Depot sold it in 1 liter size (about 34 oz.), so I bought one. The directions called for putting 1 to 2 cups in the drain, waiting for 15 minutes, and then flushing with hot water. This didn't work, so I resigned myself to renting the auger. I still had half of the bottle left, so poured it down the drain and went to bed. When I woke up the next morning the drain was clear!
So, great stuff, just be prepared for waiting more than 15 minutes for it to work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Squidward Single Mom; Saved $300 Service Call with Clogged Tub Drain
Not that this is important, but I'm a single mom and not a DIYer. I don't have a handy-man around to help when things go wrong in my duplex. My landlord is a nice enough guy but being expedient isn't one of his qualities.
So Friday night, my tub starts backing up. The water is warm and has particles in it...I'm thinking it's from the washer as I had just did a load of laundry. I run out to our local CVS at 10:00 pm and buy two bottles of Liquid Plumber Extra Strength Gel. I have about 3 inches of standing water in the tub and Liquid Plumber says the gel will go through the water...NOT. I let it stand overnight and in the morning I have MORE water. So now I have 1/2 tub of warm, icky particle-filled water. It looks like lint and such but I can't tell. Regardless this doesn't look good.
So I jump online and find this product and read most of the reviews; as I'm not easily convinced. Not wanting to believe it but having no choice I run to our local Home Depot and purchase a large bottle; the 67.6 oz one. I had a clog before and the landlord stated they charged him $300 to come out on a Sunday to snake and unclog our drain when this happened before. I didn't want to do that to the guy and I definitely didn't have the money to foot the bill so I was praying this would work.
I get home and bail out as much of the water as I can. It's not really going down though because the back up must be between the toilet (where I was dumpling the water) and the sink/tub in the bathroom. After about 15 minutes of getting nowhere with bailing, I dump the entire bottle down over the drain. I planned on leaving it overnight.
I checked on it every 30 minutes and after about 4 hours I see the tub has totally drained. I can't believe it! I boil a pot of water and pour it down there ta-da!....so far my tub has drained perfectly ever since. I am thrilled!
Our rental is about 50 years old and the last plumber who came out told me the pipes are old and have juts (not sure that's the word to use) but materials get caught on the jutted pieces and end up creating a clog. Whatever clog we had...we don't have it now!
I went back to Home Depot and bought a second bottle to have on-hand for this very reason. This is the first review I have EVER written online and I can tell you...it works.
Take it from non-DIYer. This stuff works. I will never waste my money on buying the other brands again. Thank you makers of Hair and Grease Drain Opener!!!!

I share a bathroom /bathtub with My sister, niece and corgi mix dog. So shedding is an understatement. We usually use Drano or Liquid Plumber but this time our mixed curly hair and k9 fur was no match. I dreaded the thought that I would need to snake the drain and while searching my Home Depot app ran into this liquid miracle. Followed the instructions and in an hour the clog was gone! Highly recommend!!!!
