They are easily effective and highly effective.
I will help you understand better the complete steps that will successfully unclog a sink with standing water.
How To Unclog A Sink With Standing Water
- Get rid of the standing water. You will need a container and a cup. Use the cup to fetch the water as you empty the water into the container.
- Clean up the sink. After emptying the standing water, use a rug to clean the sink. In most cases, the sink will have food residue clamped up which is collected from food remnants on plates. To avoid or reduce these clogs, make sure plates have no food before placing them in the sink.
- Add half a cup of baking soda to the sink drainage carefully. Wait for 10 minutes.
- Add a cup of white vinegar after the 10 minutes lapse. Wait for another 15-30 minutes and try running water to test if the sink has been successfully unclogged. When the water flows in with ease, the clog will have been dislodged successfully.
