I've manufactured some simple drain cleaners. I've seen something like this before, at a hardware store, so it's not something I'm going to be able to patent or sell.
Works great. The thin profile fits much better than the bent coat hangers that I used to use.
They are made from an old, flexible vinyl cutting board.Takes about three minutes to manufacture one, using scissors.
These things have been working well for more than a year. A while back, my daughter called and said that she needed her bathroom drain cleaned. I told her to use the device, and she told me she threw it out because she thought it would never be needed. She's keeping the new one.
I have shown my devices to members of the police and Border Patrol. Everybody had a chuckle as we figured out other ways that it might be used.
I have also used Rebecca's method of cleaning hands with oil. My favorite is coconut oil. This works well with many paints, caulking and other difficult to remove stuff. I wipe most of it off with a paper towel, in order to avoid washing a lot of oil down the drain.
