Cleaning Linear Drains for Showers
Remove the drain cover and extract any hair or debris from it. Use a stiff wire coat hanger or drain zipper tool to pull hair and grime out of the drain pipe. Pour baking soda, vinegar, and boiling water down the drain in stages to dissolve and rinse away debris and buildup. Brush drain walls with a narrow drain brush, and finish by replacing the drain cover.
