Boil water in the kettle as much as it can hold. Slowly pour it down the drain, waiting a couple of seconds between each pour. The boiling water will dissolve anything blocking the way. This is the easiest and fastest way to unlock a drain. Plus, you already have the tools for it at home.
Baking Soda and Vinegar
Both of these items are two of the most effective natural, home-remedy cleaners. Mix 1/3 cup of baking soda and 1/3 cup of vinegar together. This mixture will start to fizz right away. Immediately pour it down the sink. Let it sit over an hour or even overnight for maximum effect. Flush it out with hot water after.
Salt and Baking Soda
Mix ½ cup of table salt with ½ cup of baking soda and pour it down the drain. Leave it for 10-20 minutes, then pour boiling water to flush it out. This will produce a chemical reaction that will dissolve the blockages.
A plunger is an excellent tool for sucking up any blockages in your drain. It requires a fair amount of effort and persistence. It may take some of your time too, but this is a tried and tested method for cleaning out the drain.
You can buy chemical cleaners at your local market. Pour it down the drain, let it sit for a couple of hours or overnight. Pour hot water to finish the process, and it should unblock the drain. Always follow your product’s instructions whenever using it.
These cleaners use compounds that chew through the blockages, but they are not as strong as the chemical cleaners. This is commonly used if the drain is blocked with hair, soap, and other easy to eliminate blockages.
