I am trying to unplug my bathtub drain. Googling for instuctions, I found:
Unclog Bathtub Drain Without Chemicals

What you will need for this method:

Baking Soda
1 Cup of Vinegar
Hot Water
Right. Sodium bicarbonate and acetic acid aren't "chemicals".

LOL. I'm in Australia at the moment, and haven't seen any shortage of toilet paper. One chain is running contests to win a year's supply though.
