There are almost as many different ways to unclog a kitchen sink as there are to clog one up. Before attempting to clear any clogged kitchen sink, there are some things that the amateur plumber needs to keep in mind. First of all before using any chemical cleaners, be sure that you fully read the instructions and only use the cleaner as instructed. Chemical cleaners are highly caustic materials that can easily cause chemical burns and other forms of damage to your body.
