Which common household items are best to unclog a kitchen sink?

If you need to unclog your kitchen sink, there are a few common household cleaners that work. Also, most homes have a plumber's helper or plunger.

  • Pour about a half a cup of grease removing cleaner down the clogged drain followed by a couple of cups of boiling water. Let this sit several hours or overnight. This will clear a grease clog.
  • Combine the above treatment with the use of a plumber's helper to loosen the clog.
  • Once the clog is removed, run hot water down the drain for at least 5 minutes.
  • Many people use equal parts of baking soda and vinegar to unclog a kitchen sink.
