Most of the time, you deal with a slow-draining sink drain yourself. A quick cleaning process can unclog your pipes and get the drain working again.

3. Cleaning the Stopper

There are times when the stopper gets clogged too. You must take the stopper out and clean it so water can properly go down the drain.

4. Clean the Overflow Hole

Make sure to check the overflow hole. It acts as a secondary drain if the main one clogs. It needs some loving too.

5. Use a Sink Plunger

Plungers just aren't for toilets. You can use a smaller version that's made specifically for sinks. 

6. Get a Zip it or Drain Snake

Get a drain snake to clear your drain. They are easily found in most hardware stores and easy to use.
