Dropped a butter knife down the drain
Posted by: Dennis S
Date: August 21, 2022 11:10PM
It’s a two-hole steel sink from the 70’s. I just was holding the knife vertical over it and turned it lose. It’s a brass hole and the pipes below it are white PVC. Is there anything stupid I shouldn’t do as stupid as what I’ve already done?

Don't cut the pipes?

Maybe fish it out with a magnet on a stick/string?

Don't put a baby in the sink hoping they will eventually stick their arm in the drain and retrieve the butter knife for you.

Yes. If you have PVC pipes this should be relatively simple.

From my testing, on average, it only worked with about one out of eight babies.
