How to clear a clogged sink in the kitchen

I am going to teach you a good method to clear a clogged sink in the kitchen. As housewives or homemakers cook, they use a lot of oil, especially Asians. This oil will go down the sink when dishes are washed. In time to come, they will harden and block the passage of water through the pipe leading out of the sink.

When this happens, all you have to do is to boil a kettle of water and pour it down the sink hole. If it still gets stuck, boil any kettle of water and do the same. After some time you will find that water will down the sink easily because the hardened had been melted by the boiling water. After this incident, you must do some maintenance work, that is, pour boiling water into the sink hole every week or fortnightly to prevent blockage of water in the pipe below the sink anymore.

pouring the hot water into the sink, can it melt the pipe somewhere down there?

It can't melt the pvc pipe which can actually stand the heat. We did it a few times to clear the blockage and it was alright.
