Kitchen and bathroom drains can easily become blocked and difficult to clear but rather than getting your hands dirty with various tools, the use of a quality drain unblocker is highly recommended. Most simply pour straight into your sink (as pictured above) and get to work in a matter of minutes so that your sinks, pipes and drains are free of any blockages.
Our hand-picked selection of drain unblockers features top-performing formulas chosen through our first-hand experience unblocking drains, testing and thorough research.

How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates The Drain Unblockers
As we own several properties (Airbnb’s and rentals), we’ve had to deal with a multitude of drain blockages. Whether the blockage is caused by hair in the bathroom, grease in the kitchen or other deposits outdoors, the majority of the time we can defeat the blockage by using a high-quality drain unblocker.
During our ongoing testing, we analyse the formula’s effectiveness, ease of application, the time it takes for it to get to work and the odour that’s left behind.
We posted a video on our YouTube channel that shows us testing a sink unblocker (HG formula) in a bathroom sink. As you can see in the video, it’s very clear that the formula is doing its job and it was very satisfying to watch too.
To keep up our commitment to reviewing and testing the latest drain unblockers (for this article), we are continually testing out the latest offerings from top brands in the UK.
As well as our testing and experience of using several drain unblockers, we also based our recommendations on the latest research and several factors. Some of the factors that we took into consideration included the unblocker’s effectiveness, ease of use, the time it takes to get to work, compatibility, odour elimination and value.
