Food particles clogging your sink? Check out these tips on how to unclog your kitchen sink

While washing the dirty utensils, often the residue of food particles tends to stick around the sink. A clogged sink can be a big trouble, but you can fix that problem easily.

Simple household ingredients and a whole lot of determination are all you need to unclog the kitchen sink. As a bonus, we’ve got 2 techniques to help you.

Plunger

Step 1:

Fill half of the sink with hot water. Position the plunger over the drain and work the plunger.

Step 2:

Continue using the plunger until all the water drains out and the clog is dislodged.

Vinegar and baking soda

Step 1:

Using a bowl or a cup remove the accumulated water from the sink. Wear rubber gloves to keep your hands clean.

Step 2:

Push 2 cups of baking soda into the drain. Use a spatula to force the baking soda inside the drain.

Step 3:

Pour 1 cup of vinegar down the drain. Place the stopper into the sink to force the vinegar flow towards the clog. Wait for 5 minutes.

Step 4:

Pour 4 cups of boiling hot water into the drain and you’ll have an unclogged sink in minutes.

Top Tip

If you have a double sink, make sure you stuff a washcloth into the unclogged drain. This will keep the plunger’s pressure focused.
