Standard unclogging liquids are full of nasty chemicals, so either purchase a less toxic product or try pouring a half cup of baking soda and a whole cup of white vinegar down the drain. Cover the drain with a cloth or stopper for five minutes, then flush with a gallon of boiling water.

These long, flexible snakes have jagged teeth that grab at the clog and yank it out of the drain, solving the problem instantly.
