Is it critical that that particular shoelace be rescued? I think shoelaces are fairly cheap, although I guess it's been awhile since I've priced them.

I don't know anything of plumbing, but it's probably in the trap beneath the drain, at least so long as you don't run a lot of water down the drain. You could get a wrench and disassemble the trap.

Or perhaps you could stick a wire down the drain and hook it and pull it back up.

@Zanqrist,
Straighten out an old coat hanger and use it to fish the lace out of the drain

@Zanqrist,
I don't know the first thing about taking apart a drain trap with a wrench, but I know it can be done.

The question is how important is it to put a large effort into recovering it. Is this a priceless family heirloom, or something that you can replace for fifty cents?

@oralloy,
I think (and they can correct me if I'm wrong) that the OP is afraid it'll clog the drain.

A worldwide pandemic is raging across the land making the four horsemen of the apocalypse look like Disney characters, and yet the loss of a cherished bootstrap can bring a tear to my eye.

The loss of this lace is knot a joke, and who, who amongst y'all has even considered the fate of the aglet as the two are invariably linked.

I think it may have been Einstein who said, C4H4AsH, this is the end.


RIP
