Q: I moved into a great apartment with a small bathroom that has a pedestal sink. For the first month, everything was fine. All of a sudden, I noticed a terrible mildewy funk coming from the sink. My boyfriend told me it was probably coming from the overflow.He put a solution of bleach and water down the overflow hole and somehow blocked the drain below the area where the overflow tub enters the drain, filling the basin with a bleach solution so it would travel up the tube (?). BF was a hero for a couple of days and then the smell came right back. Clearly the bleach is not reaching all the mildew.
Has anybody experienced this problem and do you have a solution for cleaning hard-to-reach areas inside the overflow?
