    You could try baking soda spooned into the drain followed by vinegar then 20min. later boiling water

    Since you've tried just about everything the clog must be further down the line. You probably need to rod it through.

    You can buy or rent a "drain snake". You insert end into drain, hand crank with handle . The snake gets down to where it's stopped up, then remove and it should pull out whatever the plug is. Then run lots of hot water down drain.

    Hello Jarriola, Have you tried using a plumbing snake or disconnecting the u-shaped pipe under the sink to see what might be in there clogging it up? I am posting a few DIY videos below to show you how, in case you haven't tried to do those things, but I also want to let you know that if it didn't help for you to do them, you may have a bigger problem furtherdown the line or into the sewer and might have to hire a professional to check things out.
    Thanks for asking Hometalk for solutions. If these don't work for you I would call a professional.

    Once you get it cleaned out (our plumber told us this) pour cloryx down the drain every month or so....about a quart. We do this with our tub, our shower and washer drain and have had no more problems. This is IF you are on the city sewer.
