The demonstration and tips on how to fix and unclog the S-bend under a kitchen sink were met with much enthusiasm. The S-bend, just under the sink, can become clogged, not allowing the sink to drain freely which can be cause for much frustration.
Tip: Over time, washers become damaged from hot water and detergents, resulting in leakages in the pipes; if you notice that your washers need replacing, take the damaged washer to the hardware store to match it to the new one. Replace the old washer with a new one when reassembling the S-bend to avoid any water leakage in the pipe joints.
Here is how to unblock your drain by cleaning out the S-bend, without it turning into an expensive experience involving plumbers or handymen:
