  • Maybe the trap is clogged! You can just unscrew it and clean it out or have Dh/So do it! just put a bucked or towel under it because it was messy. We just cleaned ours a couple of weeks ago and it solved the problem!

  • A plunger will work. If it is a double sink you have to have a 2nd plunger to cover the 2nd drain. My landlord did it once when I lived in my tiny apartment.

  • i was a dork once and thought that the sink was clogged when in fact that there was just a really small plug in there... but i used a plunger to get the water to go down... silly me but u gotta plug the other side if u have one so u get a good plunging

  • Try the plunger! I felt so stupid last week. My kitchen sink clogged up. I thought it was the hamburger grease that I accidently poured in to the sink,clogging the drain. I was gonna take the pipes apart but it was too hard and i didnt have the right tools. I was gonna wait til my father came over. Well,my mother came over and I told her what happened. She was like.."Oh no...now what..."Well,she found a plunger under my bathroom cabiniet (I just moved into this new home) and used the plunger. Down went all the water!!!!!!!!
