How to Unclog Your Kitchen Sink in 3 Steps

One minute you’re cooking a nice meal, and the next thing you know, you’re staring at a sink-full of water and you need to call the plumber and the pizza-delivery guy. But not anymore. It’s time to say “never again” to kitchen sink clogs. You got this! Unclogging your kitchen sink is as easy as 1-2-3.

Steps to unclog the sink:

  1. The first thing to check with any sink clog is the strainer over the drain. Remove it, look for any food or gunk, then clean it off thoroughly to make sure it isn’t causing your clog.

  2. Next, you could consider using a plunger. Partially fill the sink with water (if it isn’t already filled), then work the plunger down and up several times before quickly pulling it off the drain opening. If you have a double-bowl kitchen sink, stuff a wet rag into the drain opening that isn’t clogged (this will help with suction).

  3. If your sink doesn’t have a garbage disposal, use Drano® Kitchen Granules Clog Remover. It creates heat inside your drain to melt and dislodge greasy clogs.

    For a garbage disposal with a clog, use Drano® Max Gel Clog Remover, or for drain odour, try Drano® Dual-Force Foamer Clog Remover.

And consider keeping some Drano® clog remover on hand just in case. No one wants to make a trip to the store in the middle of a kitchen sink crisis!
