Once it has cleared, try running the faucet to see if things have speeded up. If not, it’s worth trying again before trying another solution.
Homeowners can also use a plunger to remove the blockage, but first, they will need to plug the bath’s overflow to create the necessary vacuum.
Most overflow covers screw off, then you can simply plug the hole with a damp cloth.
Trinity instructed: “To execute the plunger technique properly, remove the drain stopper and fill the water up by a couple of inches.
“Take a sink plunger, not a toilet plunger (unclogging a toilet requires a different size plunger), and place this directly over the drain before pumping it up and down a few times, taking pauses to see if the water begins to drain.
“Repeat this a few times until, with luck, the blockage is gone.”
