Unclog Bathroom Sink Clogged with Hair

Learn effective DIY methods to unclog a bathroom sink clogged with hair. Get your sink flowing freely again with these simple steps.

Identify the Clog

The first step in unclogging a bathroom sink is to identify the cause of the clog. If the sink is clogged with hair, you’ll likely see a visible buildup of hair in the drain or the water draining slowly. Determine the extent of the clog before attempting to clear it.

Use a Plunger

A plunger is a simple and effective tool for unclogging a bathroom sink. Fill the sink with a few inches of water, then firmly place the plunger over the drain. Quickly pull the plunger up and down several times to create suction and dislodge the clog.

Try a Drain Snake

If the plunger doesn’t work, a drain snake (also known as a plumber’s snake) can be used to physically break up the clog. Carefully insert the snake into the drain and twist it to work through the hair and debris.

Use Baking Soda and Vinegar

For a more natural approach, try pouring a mixture of baking soda and vinegar down the drain. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes, then flush the drain with hot water. The chemical reaction can help dissolve the hair and other organic matter causing the clog.
