June has quickly surpassed the winter holiday season as the busiest time of the year in our household and it often feels like we are living in Grand Central Station! We have dueling groups of both of my kids’ friends jockeying for snacks ( I’ve decided that I need to become a member of Costco to keep up with the demand) and our very old and fragile sinks and bathrooms are taking a beating! See we live in one of those over 100 year old houses and the plumbing is well- it was built to accommodate a time when you probably took one shower every few days! Of course fast forward to 2017 and I’ve got several teens sleeping over and showering and my poor plumbing system is CRYING OUT FOR HELP!
With all this activity problems sometimes arise when things get clumped dumped and flushed and washed down our drains. We live in an older house and the plumbing is good but when the wrong things go down we get clogs anywhere from the sinks to our main sewer drain line. And I’ve already been informed that both of my kids have several parties planned over the course of these next two months! So if like me, you want to entertain but not end up with a home that has been trashed by sweet kids – here are a few tips to party proof your humble abode so that the cleanup and damage is kept to a bare minimum!
#1 Keep finger foods handy. When your kids pile into the house after a bike ride with eight of their friends and everyone is starving- having bite sized finger foods you can pop in the microwave that don’t require forks and dipping sauces is the way to go! We always have veggie corn dogs in the freezer that come on sticks- and they are usually a big crowd pleaser!
#2 Stock up on ROTO Rooter Products! An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and no where is this more important than when you make sure the wrong things don’t go down your drains and that starts (and ends) with hair. I am able to preach to my daughter and wife the risks of hair in drains and that it is the primary reason for drain clogs in the bathroom but sometimes hair clogs form.
Other important things to keep out of drains are paper towels, grease, food and baby wipes. But when strangers are in the house all bets are off and things, usually not good things, can happen.
After decades of being America’s top name in plumbing, Roto-Rooter is now available in product form so that you can tackle your plumbing issues without having to call a professional. Roto-Rooter’s drain clog removers work on slow moving and clogged drains. Sometimes no matter how vigilant you are drains can get clogged with hair, grease or other thick food particles. I have found that Roto-Rooter works better than any other product.
Why choose Roto-Rooter products over other brands?
Now you can have that same 80 years of expertise in a bottle; introducing the NEW Roto-Rooter Drain Care products; The Strongest National Brand.
They have four separate formulations for your specific need, including Hair Clog Remover, Gel Clog Remover, Septic treatment, and Build up Remover all so effective and safe on pipes and septic systems. Independent lab tests have proven that Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover clears tough clogs up to 50% faster than other national brands. This is due to our Professional gel formula with 25% more active ingredients than the competition, and the precise viscosity to power through standing water to remove all types of stubborn clogs, hair, soap scum and grease.

#3 Always Opt for the clear liquids whenever possible! I usually have a big batch of fruit flavored ice water or sparkling seltzer chilling. This way of there is a spill- which there will most likely be at least it won’t be too hard to clean up. Light liquid versus Bright red liquid is always a win in my book!
#4 Make sure to Keep your pantry stocked with kitchen wreck proof kitchen essentials. I love with biodegradable, disposable plates and fun plastic glassware that you can recycle. And always keep coasters on every coffee and end table possible and make sure your kids know that it is their job to CLEAN UP ( this might make them take a more vested interest in keeping their guests and their messes to a minimum!)
