I'd suggest, if you are at all good with tools; renting a "snake" from a do it yourself place, like Lowes or Hope Depot. It costs a fraction of a plumbers visit!

But, even before that, put a bucket under the goose-neck pipe under your sink, and take the pipes apart of the drain, most times, the clog is right in the curve at the bottom!

Do a quick YouTube search for how toos on both ideas!

I would use a plunger on the sink. I always use it in our bathtub. When you plunge it, push it and pull it way up, and the force will dislodge any toy or solid thing in the drain.


Also you can make a wire out of a paperclip, or a hanger and "snake" it out.

Also baking soda poured into the sink a little and then vinegar and hot water work sometimes. Here is a video showing how to use the baking soda and white vinegar, and hot water.


Taking the u shaped part of the pipe out and see if it is clogged. This is where most things that are solid get lost, like earrings.

Hopefully that would help. You can always get draino and pour it in there.

Blessings, Robyn
