Do you have access to a wet/dry vacuum? If you do, or if you can get to a hardware rental place that offers them, then you have the perfect tool to use for fixing the most common of all household plumbing problems: The problem of a clogged drain. The principles behind using a wet/dry vacuum are the same as if you were using a plunger, but with much more power and suction.
It is fairly easy to use a wet/dry vacuum to remove the blockage in your kitchen, just use the following step-by-step instructions, and you clogged sink will be a thing of the past.
Before starting to actually use the vacuum, you will want to make sure that you have a few old towels around. This will help in case you spill any of the water and gunk that you clear from your drain. This mess could come from either blowback or because you drop the cylinder that contains the junk that you have removed. Remember the old Scout motto of "be prepared."
