Oxidation of faucets in beach houses
Plumbing trick: To avoid oxidation in taps in houses near the sea, the trick is to spread Vaseline on the taps when we are going to be away for a certain time. When we return, we will carefully clean the Vaseline, and thus we will be able to enjoy always new taps for a long time.
Plumbing trick: The first thing you have to do is check if the clogged sink is not full of hair. If it’s stuck with hair, remove it with a small wire, clip, or bobby pin. Then protect the color of the ceramic in the sink by smearing Vaseline on the drain opening. Protect yourself with rubber gloves, take a little chemical plunger with a spoon and pour hot water to drag the solution to the drain pipe. Take care not to breathe the vapor from the chemical plunger.
