I used the method that has been posted several times on Thriftyfun for unstopping a toilet. Pour Dawn dish detergent down the drain and let it sit a few minutes. Then pour boiling water down drain. Afterwards, I used the plunger and it unstopped the drain immediately. Amazing.

Before you try using a drain cleaner try using a baby bottle brush. Get one that has a wire type handle so it can be bent. When you get it in twirl it around and in and out to get hair and debris dislodged. Repeat as need to clean the hair off the baby bottle brush. I then used a plunger while the water was running. Worked for me! Don't use the baby bottle brush again for your baby's bottles.

I use a fine crochet and it pulls it right out.

The Dawn/plunger route worked great! Thanks for the tip!

Drain Clear by Enforcer. An enzyme. Safe. Very effective. Clears drains of years of collection.

Don't do Drano, as it can harm the pipes. I think I'll try the Dawn detergent route.
