How to break through a clogged sink

Slow water flow is not the only negative consequence of a clogged sink. Dirt, grease, hair, and food debris can lead to unpleasant odors in the kitchen and serious damage to the drainage system.

You can deal with the problem yourself without calling a plumber, of course, if the problem has not become too serious. James Chapman, an experienced plumber and owner of Bella Bathrooms, shared several methods for cleaning the sink.

Tip 1

First of all, pour boiling water down the drain, then add one glass of baking soda and pour a cup of hot water over everything.

Wait five minutes before rinsing the drain with running water to thoroughly clean the pipes and break through the blockage.

Tip 2

According to a plumber, a combination of hot water and dishwashing detergent can break through even very dense grease plugs.

  • Heat a kettle of water to almost boiling.
  • Pour a large amount of liquid soap into the drain.
  • Then add hot water to help the active ingredients dissolve the grease that's causing the clog.

Tip 3

Washing powder can be an effective method for unclogging sinks. Pour two tablespoons of powder into the sink and rinse with boiling water.

Tip 4

Mix half a cup of table salt with the juice of one lemon to create an acidic mixture that can help break down clogs.

Pour this mixture directly into the sink and let it sit for about 30 minutes to allow the acidic components to work on the dirt and buildup.

After that, rinse the drain with boiling water to clear away the dirt. This method not only helps to clean the sewage system, but also disinfects the pipes.
