    First, try a plunger.

    Second, if that doesn’t work, use Drano or another drain-unclogging product.

    Third, if those don’t work, buy a plumbing snake from a hardware store (20-40 dollars). It is a flexible metal hose that you put down the drain that can go around the bends and you can push the clogging material out with.

    Fourth, last resort, call a plumber.

    If you dont want to use harsh chemicle’s, I use this to clear my kitchen drain all the time. pour about 1/3 cup baking soda into the blocked drain, put 1 cup white viniger in the microwave, heat to just under a boil, usually about 1.30 slowly pour the vinigar down the drain. follow with hot tap water. I have used it in my shower it works well there too.

    U mentioned drain…Vanity? Most of the time, it’s only blocked by the stopper. (hair and crude.) Just remove the stopper by the P trap. Pull out the stopper and use a stick like a chop stick and clean out the stuff, from the top. If that don’t work. U have to buy a small snake (hand crank about $20.) to run it from top to clean out the pipe to the elbow.
    If it’s a kitchen drain. U have to remove the p-trap and run the snake to about 15-20′ into the pipe. That’s where it usually clogged. This the the best and surest way to clean out drains.
