Use a Plunger

Start by plunging the clogged sink drain. Use your toilet plunger (well-washed), if you have to. A dedicated sink plunger is better, though; it’s smaller and flat-bottomed — unlike a toilet plunger, which ends in a flange. Plunging alone may be enough to take care of clogged drains. Even if further action is necessary, at least you’ve gotten rid of all that standing water first.

Try This Homemade Solution

Use the power of three simple, inexpensive ingredients you probably already have handy: baking soda, vinegar, and hot water. Pour ½ cup baking soda down the kitchen drain in a thin stream. Add a chaser of ½ cup white vinegar. Seal the drain opening with the sink plug and let your mixture bubble away for 15 minutes.

Unplug and follow up with 2 cups of boiling water. TIP: If you have a porcelain sink or PEX plumbing pipes, avoid potential damage; use merely hot water, not boiling.

Buy An Eco-Friendly Drain Cleaner

Many commercial drain cleaners contain harsh chemicals, which are harmful to the environment and damaging to your plumbing system, as well. (They’re also dangerous to kids, pets, and other living creatures.) So please purchase only an environmentally-friendly enzyme or bacteria-based brand. Use according to the manufacturer’s directions.
