My shower drain was clogged, and I cleared the clog with a snake and by plunging. I also used an enzyme cleaner on it. The drain is now running pretty well, but after the shower runs, there is a bad smell coming from the drain for quite a while. Any ideas how to get rid of the smell? When I take the cover off the drain, there is a whitish buildup on the pipe that flakes off when I try scraping it.

Thanks for your help!

Try to neutralize it with a mixture of 4 parts water to 1 part chlorine bleach. CAUTION: NEVER at any time mix bleach with anything but water. Bleach is very strong, and mixed with a wrong chemical could result in death. use rubber gloves when handling any chemical.
