Homework Help from San Diego Plumbers
History, Chemistry, Ecology & More!
The advent of September means that for the next nine months, parents are planted at dining room table several times each week helping children with homework. While teens may be too cool for mom and dad’s help, grade schoolers’ and middle schoolers’ wailing over vocabulary, math prompts hair to drop out in clumps. Your local plumber to the rescue! Really!
We looked over our posts and selected these as great homework helpers. You do not even have to cite us, but trust that we provide robust, well-researched information. We all have kids of our own. We’ve lived the homework battles.

Ozzy Ozbourne, Sir Michael Caine and more all got their start unclogging toilets. Believe it!

Gas-emitting bacteria, including e-coli, can stay in the damp parts of the washing machine, building up to stinkiness. Washing machine cleaners contain weak acids that kill these bacteria. The hot water alone doesn’t do it.
Baking soda and white vinegar create a weak “carbonic acid” that kills bacteria. Read about rock salt, lemon and more!
Chemical drain cleaners change — sometimes drastically — all materials they come into contact with. Bring the magic of chemistry into the everyday when you read this post about how damaging chemical drain cleaners can be. Read how the Environmental Protection Agency calls chemical drain cleaners, “toxic household poison.”
Meteorology & Environment

Rinse dishes with pasta water. Use dry shampoo and more.
