I have a nice refrigerator I like, but it has one problem.
Like all modern refrigerators it has a "automatic defrosting" and a drain tube which carries the condensate away to... somewhere. I think it comes out somewhere in the back, but I haven't been able to find the place. Not that I've looked much. The back of the refrigerator is inaccessible, unless I empty it and move the whole big thing, and I don't want to do that.
Some years ago due to my own mistake some gunk got into the tube. Now every few months it gets clogged up and the water doesn't flow through it, meaning I get a puddle.
Currently I'm using a piece of a wire to poke it and eventually it comes open just enough to last for a few more months. I suspect there's some mold growing in there or something, but with my measly piece of a wire there's no way I can do anything more than poke a little hole. So I'm wondering - there's a better tool for the job?
The pipe is made of silicone (I think) and is pretty narrow. Something on the order of 0.5cm, I think, although I cannot measure it. The clog is about 20-30cm deep. It's not straight, although I don't think it has a 90-degree bend. It takes a bit of wriggling, but I can push my wire through.
I was thinking - perhaps something like this, but I cannot find one narrow and long enough. I don't know if that exists.
