Sulfuric Acid Drain Cleaner Vs. Wet Sponge

June 29, 2011


This is a battle between a sulfuric-acid based drain cleanser and a wet sponge. SPOILER: The sponge loses (although technically the acid is actually reacting with the water). I know you might be a fan of rooting for the underdog, but in this case the underdog gets its ass burnt off and handed to it. Reminds me of when I used to lock myself in my lab (read: bathroom) and mix random cleaners together in a bucket trying to invent a new, more powerful one. One time the smell alone made me pass out! That's when I knew I had something. "Had what -- the poison control hotline's 'Dumbf*** of the Month' award in the bag?" They sent me a magnet for the fridge and everything!

Hit the jump for the carnage.

Thanks to Tomtom, who once mixed baking soda and vinegar and made a little erupting volcano. Now do it with ammonia and bleach!

  • Drain cleaners are built to help keep drains and sewers clear of debris, sludge and other waste materials.

  • At the first indication of slowly draining, you should call a drain cleaning professional. This professional can use the proper resources and substances to keep your drains clear, with no harm the pipe joints or accessories. Even a simple mess up block can cause serious surging, which can harm damage drywall.
