To open a stopped up drain in your kitchen when you don't have a plunger available, get a 6-8 oz. plastic glass (one of those opaque ones you get free drinks in) and put it upside down over your drain hole. Push down quickly flattening it and it will open the drain. I did this and then just for extra measures, I did it once more. It really works and is easier on my hands and arms than a hard rubber plunger which for me never works anyhow.
