    Usually its hair in the drain, they make these rigid plastic drain snakes to clean out the drain..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANwR9VPjqY8 I got my latest one at the Dollar Tree for $1.
    If that doesn't work, then you've got to go under the sink.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PI0iaIB6-4&t=18s

    Hello Marilyn, Use a Plunger, if you don't have one you could use a Jar or anything else that will allow you to get a vac. effect by plunging it up and down over the plughole trapping air. When sufficient air is trapped - pull Jar away and hopefully sink will drain. If not, Try leaving coca cola in the sink overnight.............If you have a excessible trap under the sink, place a bowl under it and release it, that should sort the problem. Good luck!

    Oh yes, we’ve been there done that. We unscrewed our piping and tried to unclog the drain this way getting some yucky stuff out. Make sure you reseal the piping though so you don’t have any leaks as we did.

    We also tried vinegar, steeping hot water and baking soda or just good ole Draino.

    If all else fails you might have to call a plumber or have someone snake it.

    Pour straight bleach into drain (at least a quart) leave it overnight then pour boiling water into the drain. if it's still clogged repeat the steps again
    I swear by this way of clearing any drain in my house.
    Good luck
