3T: Add some soap
I was reading in Utah Valley Magazine the other day some advice from a long-time plumber (May/June 2014 issue, p.90) that I thought I’d try to remember and put into practice.
Funny thing about last night: after I had made some scones with leftover frozen roll dough (that had been thawed like 5 days ago), I went to pour the used oil down the drain when I told Lane that I had read this advice from a plumber, to add dish soap when pouring oil down a drain.
As I was telling him, I realized I had seen Lane do that very thing at least a 100 times before.
So this morning, I was thinking about that. Did the plumber say that about the soap? Or did I just get that from Lane? As I considered, I remembered something about pouring cold water down the drain, and it dawned on me what I had read was to add cold water when pouring boiling water down the drain. I went back to the magazine to verify, and saw that I had mixed it up and attributed to the plumber what I had learned from Lane.
Good thing my husband just laughs along with me.
Well, both pieces of advice are good. Thanks, Plumbers Lane and Kelly Barney!
Happy Avoiding Plumbing Problems,
