How To Clear A Clogged Kitchen Sink

  1. 1. Sooner or later, you’ll experience having a clogged kitchen sink. That’s normal. Every time you use your sink to wash your produce or clean your pots and pans, small particles and grease get into the sink drain.
  2. 2. These substances may stick onto the walls of your pipes and accumulate over time, thereby resulting to clogs.
  3. 3. Fortunately, it is not that difficult to clear drain clogs. With the right plumbing tools and supplies, you can make the flow of water in your sink smooth again.
  4. 4. Just one quick tip! Never use chemical drain cleaners. They contain harsh chemicals that will eat away on your pipes.
  5. 5. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to clear a clogged kitchen sink. Follow these steps properly and you’ll surely fix the problem ASAP.
  6. 6. Scoop the water out so you can inspect the drain. Check if there are food particles blocking the hole and remove them if there are. Turn the faucet on to check if that solves the issue.
  7. 7. If the clog is in the pipe, try a popular home remedy: baking soda and vinegar. Pour a cup of baking soda into the drain then pour a cup of vinegar. Plug the hole and let the two ingredients create a chemical reaction.
  8. 8. Wait for a few minutes as the baking soda and vinegar combination fizzes out the sticky particles on the pipe walls. When you no longer hear any fizzing sound, pour a kettle of boiling water to wash away the ingredients.
  9. 9. If the clog persists, it’s time to make use of your good old plunger. Put some water in the sink to ensure that the plunger’s rubber part gets soaked. Position it right in the middle of the hole and start plunging in a consistent pace. Repeat for about 15 times then test if the clog was removed.
  10. 10. When the blockage is too stubborn, make use of your plumbing snake. Detach the trap under the sink and insert the snake. Turn the crank clockwise to further insert the snake. Keep on pushing the wire until the clog is broken into tinier pieces.
