Find a wide variety of drain cleaners to unclog metal and plastic pipes. There are various chemical and enzymatic options to handle different organic materials. Some are safe for use in health facilities, homes, and business premises. Choose from cleaners in various quantities for home or commercial applications. Staples has a diverse selection of cleaning chemicals and wipes in addition to other cleaning supplies such as detergents, tools, and machinery.

Fast-acting chemical drain cleaners
Alkaline and caustic drain openers feature a liquid solution that dissolves organic waste in pipes to clear out gunk, solid food, and other waste. They come in concentrated and ready-to-use solutions so you can use small amounts to unclog pipes. They turn clogs into soapy fluids that are easier to dissolve so they can flow away. Alkaline cleaners can provide a one-step solution to clean kitchen and utility drains fast.

Chemical cleaners can work in as little as 15 minutes to clear utility, kitchen, and bathroom drains. Oxidizing cleaners are heavier than water so they settle at the bottom of standing water and then act on the clog to clear it. Select chemical cleaners are also safe to leave overnight. Gel cleaners are another option to remove scum, hair, and other materials that cause clogs. Their thick formulation features potent ingredients that work fast to make drains free-flowing again.

Enzymatic drain cleaners for toilet drains
Enzymatic cleaners have natural bacteria that produce enzymes to digest organic materials in the drains. The bacteria break down waste matter to remove blockages and neutralize bad odors.

Some enzymatic cleaners are resistant to disinfectants, detergents, and sanitizers. These can work on bathroom, toilet, and other utility drains. Enzymatic cleaners do not contain any chemicals, so they are safe for use in a wide range of settings, including homes, hospitals, schools, funeral homes, and other establishments.

Can you use drain cleaners on different types of pipes?
Enzyme cleaners are safe to use with metal, plastic, and PVC pipes. They’re suitable for unclogging as well as maintaining drains and are safe to use in septic systems. For chemical cleaners, check product details to know which are safe for use with metal, PVC, and plastic pipes in addition to septic systems. Some chemical cleaners are free of phosphorus and feature special ingredients that prevent corrosion of pipes and damage to septic systems.

Are drain cleaners safe for home and business settings?
Consider enzymatic and non-fuming chemical cleaners for such applications. These are safe both as cleaners and maintainers, and you can leave some of them in drains overnight.

To deal with leaks from drains, consider using sorbents. These can absorb different types of liquid chemicals, petroleum, and other mixtures. Set them under leaky drains, machines, and other fittings to keep spills from spreading. They have dimpled and perforated designs that increase their absorbent qualities to prevent unwanted liquids from flowing down drains or spreading on floors.

Can you buy drain cleaners in bulk?
Choose from containers of various sizes ranging from 1 to 4 quarts. Some cleaners are available in single containers, while others come in packs of different sizes such as six-packs.
