    What's stuck in it? Gunk? Hair? Kitchen stuff? For most sinks you can boil hot water and pour it in with some vinegar (about 50/50 mix) or Dawn dish soap to dissolve grease and other yucky stuff. Then rinse well. There are chemicals that work, too. Taking the trap apart involves plumbing stuff which you can do - with a little research and the right tools. To keep the drain from getting clogged, don't let anything greasy sit in the pipe. Always rinse out the sink for about 10 seconds when you're done using it. I'm sure others will offer suggestions, too.

    Check on pintrest for the exact amounts, but baking soda and white vinegar, let stand for 30 minutes then pour hot water and rinse the drain.

    Pour a cup of baking soda down the drain and follow it up with hot boiling water. That should flush the problem down the drain. If its the bathroom sink then it might be hair clogging the drain. Home Depot/Lowes sell a long plastic device called Zip It that you push down the drain and pull it back up and it will grab the hair and unclog the drain.

    Our daughter and her friend are staying in our guest bathroom; they both have very long hair and have clogged the bathtub drain -- to the point where the second you turn on the water it starts backing up! I tried the hot water, baking soda, etc. stuff and none of that worked. I finally went to OSH and got their industrial/commercial strength declogging gel -- poured half the bottle down the drain, waited 15 minutes, then flushed with water. BINGO. It worked instantly! And it's safe for all kinds of pipes.
