If you have a complete clog, those caustic drain cleaners may or may not help, otherwise it will flow out right paswt a partial clog, and the it may be dangerous for your eyes and skin. It is best to snake clogs out.
If you have sluggish drain pipes, an enzyme-based drain cleaner, such as DrainCare, works best. It eats out organic crud overnight, and won't harm your sink, pipes, etc.
Good Luck!
