Clearing a Sink Drain

by Sherm Turner


Dear Sherm,
What is the best thing to use when your bathroom sink drain is draining very, very slow? Are there any type "household remedies"? If so, what would you recommend?
Waterlogged

Dear Waterlogged,
The best remedies for unplugging a stopped up bathroom sink drain would be using an electric snake machine. Your blockage (plug-up) is usually hair, dirt, and grease. Then flush-out and wash clean the drain line piping.
Thanks,
Sherman
