    Hi Lucy,

    1/cup baking soda followed by 1 cup white vinegar, when the fizzing stops, rinse well with hot tap water.

    Remove as much as possible with a snake or drain cleaning tool. Pour ½ cup baking soda then ½ cup white vinegar in the drain and cover, letting sit for 20 minutes. Boil water, remove cover, and pour water down the drain. You may have to repeat the process.

    They sell a barbed plastic strip at any home improvement store that is specifically designed for sink drains. They are cheap (like $2). You put it down the drain then twist it and pull back out. I recommend using gloves for this. It's going to be gross.
