    aAsk a friend or a neighbor if they have a snake you could use to possibly unclog your bathroom sink. Tell them you don't know what you're doing and kind of nervous. Also, do not mix different types of chemicals down the drain BC if its clogged and not draining it could cause a chemical reaction and mess up your pipes. I would just ask some friend to help that is knowledgeable with this and hopefully it can be unclogged. Good luck.

    Go to the counter section at Lowes or Home Depot

    Being a woman shouldn't make a difference. Buy a "plumbers snake" and use it. Watch a youtube video and twist it good. When you pull the snake out, don't faint at all the gunk. haha

    You can rent a “snake” from HOME DEPOT. Push it down into your drain pipe & a possible hair nest could be loosened at a bend. Often if you disconnect the drain pipe under the sink (use a bucket to catch any water in pipes), you may find your clog is just in the “U” bend of the drain pipe. Try the this first & then go with the snake. ALWAYS wear rubber gloves & wash everything with bleach afterwards, since the drain contents are full of bacteria. Good Luck!! PS. Can’t a friend help you out??

    Big box or local hdware store sells long multi pronged plastic snake. Works for me every time.
