Gabriella #22 Hi Samira, I have used the drain clog removing tool Drain-FX. When my kitchen sink drain clogged with food, grease and hair, I initially tried removing the clog with plunger, but nothing happened then I also tried using the chemical mix Drano which was giving me a headache but that too didn’t work out then I googled and found this product Drain-FX. It is so easy to use since it comes with a step by step instruction manual, all you have to do is connect the tool with your tap in the sink and let go the tap water, the tool then creates a pressure washer effect which flushes out all the clog that has accumulated in the drain, within minutes you will be able to see the water gushing out of your drain. I also bought one for my sink (Drain-FX Sinks) and another one for my tub (Drain-FX Plus). You can buy them from their website drain-fx.com). There is no chemicals, no plumbing charges and no mess or complications in using this tool it is so simple and easy to use. Thanks, Gabriella

Thank you for this instructable. My comment isn't directed at this instructable. This comment is for people searching and might want not want to try this instructable until they try the wimpier way first. * If it's a bathroom sink or tub, the most likely culprit is hair. Try getting as much hair out by using a wire hanger, straightened out. Someone already mentioned that, I just wanted all the notes in one comment. Bring some white vinegar or apple cider (I have always that as I cook with it) to a simmer. I never measure but I'd suggest 1 to 1 1/2 cups of vinegar. Pour some baking soda (sorry, again I never measure) into the drain. Let’s estimate 1/2 cup. Use a wooden spoon or your hands, or whatever to get all the soda into the drain. Then pour the hot vinegar into the drain. It will foam and bubble up. Let that do it's thing for a while, let's estimate 15 minutes. While the timer is ticking, boil some water. Pour the boiling water down the drain. This may take a few applications before one will see results. It is suggested by some to do this on a regular basis as preventative maintenance. I suspect it depends on how hairy the people and how many people share these drains. Why not add it to your spring and fall cleaning schedule so at least it's being done twice a year. * Now, for kitchen sinks. The culprit is most likely grease. I've actually seen recipes that say to drain hamburger in the sink, (and then pour boiling water down the sink) for example. I suspect some people do not realize how much oil and grease they are dumping down the drain over a period of time. Buy some ubber cheap degreasing dish washing liquid. You can save the more expensive one for your dishes. Measure out 1 cup of the degreasing type dishwashing liquid and pour down the drain. Let it sit there as long as possible. Boils some water and pour that down the drain. From now on, pour any hot grease or oil into a can, I saved a tuna can for this purpose but one may need a larger can depending on their cooking habits. Once the grease has cooled, use paper towels, news paper (I get those ads once a week in the mail), or paper bags if you prefer to be a wee bit green and at least get a second use out of them, to wipe out the grease and toss. (Can you say “run on sentence.”?) Or if you eat a lot of tuna, just throw out the whole can.
