Gutter cleaning
What special tool, homemade or store bought, do you use to clean out jammed downspouts/elbows?

I've tried some like a twisted clothes hanger, Romex, etc.

I think the 1 gal shop vacs have flexible enough and small diameter enough hoses to jam in there and suck the leaves/crap out.

I use my leaf blower

If a clog is more than a foot or two down into a downspout, or around the corner of an elbow, I insert a running garden hose from the gutter end.
