Idea Exchange: Got a clogged sink? Get a syringe stat!

A 60-ml syringe can be used to unclog sinks. The barrel fits snuggly into most drains and can be used to push drain cleaner or water through the clogged drain. Sometimes it takes several attempts of forcing air and backed-up liquid through. I used this method to unclog a drain that three rounds of cleaner and a snake couldn't fix.
