slow drain sink

I have a slow drain sink in a half bath. I just have this half bath and laundry drain on this stack. The toliet & laundry have no problem draining. I have replaced the p-trap on the sink and the water stopper isn't sticking and had no success. Have any ideas?

A couple things that you could try is taking the trap back off and remove the stopper in the pop up assy. and see if you can see through the hole. Alot of lavatory drains will clog right there. If it is clear put it all back together and put som sodium hypochlorite down the drain. Its the same thing as pool shock and will disolve hair and other discusting things in your drain and is alot cheaper than "Draino" and I personally think it does a better job. Hope it helps!

If all else fails, clean the line out with a snake.
