Thanks (I am Canadian after all):)
Alternatively, once you have removed the stopper, pull the goo up out of the pipe. An improvised hook tool, e.g. made from one of those awful wire coat hangers we all have in our closets, will work just fine. Put the goo in your compost, not your garbage. It is full of protein from the hair and biofilm that will add nutrition and vitality to your compost - at least a little bit. There is not likely to be much soap residue present and any little bit that may be there will not cause any problem. I don't like pushing any clog down if I can pull it up, as you are risking it collecting somewhere deeper in your sewer and causing a bigger clog.
Alternatively, once you have removed the stopper and exposed the goo, you could use a hook tool of some sort (e.g. a good use for those awful wire coat hangers we all have hanging around) to pull it up out of the pipe. Pushing the mass down your drain might give it an opportunity to collect somewhere further in your sewer. Put the mass of goo into your compost, not your garage. It is a mass of protein and biofilm and will add nutrients and vitality to your compost - at least a little bit!
Some great ideas in that box. I would suggest adding a small tube of cyanoacrylate glue. Wonderful for sealing small wounds without stitching them.
