First of all try using a plunger. Cover the overflow hole with wet paper towels. Pour some baking soda down the drain. Then pour some vinegar down. After it stops foaming follow up with hot water. If this doesn't work the clog may be further down the line and it would need to be rodded from underneath.
Here is a method you can use that works well.
They make plastic little "snakes" of sort to pull out hair from your drain. You didn't mention if this was the bathroom sink or the tub but should help both. I know it did for me. Got mine at amazon.com and paid less then $8 for a package of 5 and they are reusable.
I agree with Mogie, buy one of these before you try dumping chemicals down the drain that might not work. https://amzn.to/35KQ97g
Hello. Even though we have an auger, most commonly we find that our drains need to be physically fished out. Either using an unbent hanger as a refashioned hook or plastic barbed tool from the dollar store to explore the drain obstruction.
Fishing out the blockage with that in -our experience— to partially involve hair seems to most readily alleviate stoppage in our bathroom sink and shower drains.
Ordered the plastic drain cleaners and will give the baking soda and vinegar a try! Thanks for your help!
Hi Chris: If you can get a really long zip tie, cut slits going down the side, one on the right, one on the left, all the way along to the bottom. Then, tie a string on the top really securely, and tie that around your finger. This will keep it from falling down the drain:) Then, stick it into the drain and jiggle it around and lift it out to see if anything stuck to it. If so, do it a few more times to get as much gunk out as you can. The Dollar Tree has these sometimes.
Then, You will need this:
A small box of baking soda
1/2 cup or so of vinegar
1 quart of really hot water
Thanks for your detailed directions! Chris
