The Plumbing Nightmare After Halloween | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

The makeup and glitter that looked so scary last night can wreak havoc on your plumbing. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help.

Between Halloween on Central and other seasonal events around Tampa Bay, you’ve had a lot of opportunities to indulge yourself in outrageous, horrific makeup complete with glitter, “blood,” “bandages” and “body parts.”

But after the fun comes the hard part – getting all that makeup, glue and sequins off so you can go to work today looking somewhat like your normal human self. If you’re like many people out there, you hopped in the shower, or stood at the sink, and used oil – baby oil, for example – or oil-based cleanser to get rid of the body decor.

On the surface, that seems good but deeper down – in your plumbing – it’s not so good. Many of the cosmetics have oil bases. (it’s called greasepaint for a reason.)  Oil is very bad for your plumbing. And if you compound the issue by using oil or an oil-based product to clean the makeup off, you’re just making things worse.

“Oil doesn’t mix with water and will end up coating your pipes,” explains. That coating builds up and it catches othre items – like the sequins and glitter from your makeup – and form a clog. The end result is slow or no draining.

Your best bet is to throw tissues or wipes used to remove your makeup into the trash and take them out with the garbage. If you do end up with a clog or slow drain from oil, or any other substance, you should call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
