Vinegar 

Let’s say that your kitchen sink has a clog. You can start by pouring white vinegar down the sink’s drain. There is no need to mix it prior to pouring it, as the mix will lead to foaming due to a chemical reaction. You can also try combinations, such as mixing baking soda with vinegar, or using a combination of vinegar, salt and borax. Then agitate the clog, cover the sink and allow the mixture to sit. You can then use a small plunger to plunge the drain. After plunging, you can attempt to pull the clog out from the clogged kitchen sink with a hanger. This is one of the best clogged kitchen sink home remedyIf this method does not do the trick, you can follow up on the next method.

Warm water 

After you have poured white vinegar and baking soda – each half cup – into the drain, cover the two openings and allow the mixture to rest for some time. Pour a gallon of warm water behind the mix so as to flush it out completely. With a blend of vinegar and baking soda, you can make any remaining fat deposits break down. Warm water will get any residues of both out. The drain will be left smelling nice and fresh.
