Will drano eat through plastic

Help I dropped a plastic cap down my drain and now it's too far down for me to get and it's clogging my drain. If I pour drano in there will it dissolve it? I'm desperate help.

No.

remove the trap and get the plastic cap out.

I doubt it. If you can't remove the trap yourself I think you need a plumber. And not like in the porn movies. An actual guy who can work metal pipes or that plug ain't never going away.

Drano comes in a plastic bottle, OP.

Use your vaccuum cleaner hose.

I'd throw a wrench in after it.

Look up a video on you tube that shows you how to remove the trap...it easy.

Tie a string around a magnet and drop down the drain - holding on to the string of course. Good luck.

Magnet for a plastic cap?

I've had this magnet down the pipe for hours and that damn cap is harder to catch than a fuck at a gay bar.

Yes, R10. Because everything you read on Datalounge is real.

You can get snakes for this at the hardware store. They are long thin metal flexible tubes that have little tiny pinchers on them to retrieve things. They are very inexpensive compared to a plumber

Real snakes will eat it. Go buy fifty garter snakes and put them in your tub.

If OP had a shred of self-sufficiency, he'd have googled this question rather than consulting a gay message board where he'll only get a handful of replies, of which only a fraction will be serious or helpful.

R5 is right, actually. Put the mouth of the vacuum hose over the drain and the suction should pull it out.

Consider the OP's sink/tub is probably full of water and re-think the vacuum idea.

How did it fit into the drain?
