I found that Liquid Plumber Gel works the best when rinsed with boiling water (bring water to a boil on stove). You may need to repeat, but it works awesome. Then as a maintenance use you baking soda and vinegar.

Why do you pour hot water down the drain 20-60 minutes after you pour Liquid Plumber into your drain? What does it do?
Normally the drain is clogged by grease and the hot water mixed with the chemicals in liquid plumbr will unclog the grease build up in the pipes and allow the water to flow through the pipes again. The hotter the water the faster it will unclog.
This is the same/similar reaction that you will get if you pour baking soda in your drain and then add white vinegar as it will start a reaction between the two products but you then need to pour hot water on top to finish the cleaning.
