We all have problems with drains every once in awhile. Most of us have zip ties or they are now very cheap to get. Its easy to use a zip tie to clean out a drain by cutting little notches in a zip tie as shown in the picture above. Then take the zip tie and push in and out of the drain. This helps bring up hair and other items that get lodged as it goes down the sink. You can also use a zip tie to scrape the sides of your drain and eliminate buildup.
