Help: Dropped 2liter bottle cap in bathtub drain

I need ideas on how to clear a clogged bathtub drain. I was cleaning out 2 liter soda bottles for water storage and I lost a plastic bottle cap down the drain. Its not a complete blockage because water still drains but its slower because the bottle cap is blocking some flow. How can I fix this problem myself?

You could try a WET VAC nozzle held tight to the drain opening.

Make sure you do this with a wet vac only because you will get a small rush of water that will damage a regular vac and possibly give you a shock.

Holy S! That actually worked. 3 weeks of that drain tormenting me fixed in 15 seconds. Youre a genius.

Thanks, but not really.

That's how I get the frozen peas out of a grocery store freezer drain when someone breaks open a bag.
