You can have as many sinks installed in your house to wash your face, dishes, or laundry. But even if one is slow-draining and gets entirely blocked, along with your garbage disposal, and no matter how much you use a drain cleaner and a plumber’s snake through the p trap from the local hardware store and the standing water doesn’t unclog— it’s a big problem. You can run hot tap water several times down the drain in your double sink but there’s a big chance it won’t make any significant change to your sink blockages.
A blocked sink drain can distract your workflow and even pose health hazards, and damage your house and belongings. You can experience sink drain blockages in your bathroom, kitchen and even your laundry!
You need to expect these occurrences from time to time. They come with owning a house and being responsible for it.
You can try some DIY methods to remove blockages in your clogged kitchen sink or bathroom sinks. Grab some rubber gloves, and try pouring boiling water down the drain opening and into the drain pipe. There could be a soap scum or food scraps and coffee grounds stuck in your drainage system and the hot water can help loosen the soap residue, grounds and food scraps. Or you can use white vinegar and baking soda down the clogged kitchen drain sink or bathroom sink. A cup of baking soda and vinegar should do the trick, and you can also pour boiling water after to fully deep clean and flush with hot water the remaining build up around the drain.
Aside from hot water, you can also buy a drain snake or bend a wire coat hanger to reach the build up of food scraps or remove debris causing the stubborn clogs. If you feel like using something stronger, you can use chemical drain cleaners. But if nothing works, and your sinks are still draining slowly, you’ll need experts to remove the blockages. Since, it could also be more than just blocked sinks.

There are various causes why your sink drain can get clogged. It can be a build-up of food debris, grease and gunk.

You can try a DIY solution and have a go with the plunger. Or try organic ingredients available in your pantry to dissolve clogged waste and materials. If nothing works you can try the following:
If you put your fingers down the drain hole and can pull out all sorts of hair and smelly gunk, then there could be more beneath the surface causing the blockage. Get a coat hanger and straighten it out of shape, effectively creating a hook at one end. And then go fishing down the drain! You’ll be amazed at how much ‘stuff’ you’ll pull out of the drain. But be careful you don’t accidentally compact a blockage and make it worse.
If you think the coat hanger can’t reach that blockage, you could always try going one step further. For instance, for the U pipe beneath your kitchen or bathroom sink, it may not be difficult to undo the nuts with a plumber’s wrench – be sure to put a big bucket underneath and make sure the water is turned off! Once removed, you don’t need us to tell you how to clear that pipe of the blockage.
