One of the most frequently used appliances in the kitchen is the sink, which makes it a top candidate for plumbing maintenance when a sink drainpipe gets clogged up. The sink drain would be trapped with various materials and components from the cooking and washing activities that would trigger eventual clogging of the pipes. The normal problem of clogging is easy to solve unless a serious item caused it, in which case the help of a expert plumber would be needed to correct the problem. There are a few components making up the kitchen sink drain like the strainer, rubber gasket, metal washer, and of course the big lock nut that may need to be dismantled in rare cases.
Realize that when water does not run through your drain, it is more than likely the result of large buildups of junk and trash clogged in the pipes. The clog could be anywhere in the drainpipes, not just limited to your kitchen. Although rare, it can even be in the vent pipe leading to the roof; such blockages usually cause slowly draining pipes rather than completely blocked pipes.
Kitchen sink clogs usually caused by grease or overworked garbage disposers can be easily removed in minutes with these simple common-sense tips.
Method one is with the use of a plunger. Make sure the plunger cup completely covers the drain opening, make sure all other outlets are plugged with wet rags then hold the plunger upright and plunge 6-10 times in vigorous strokes.
The second method is with the use of vinegar and baking soda. First, pour ½ cup baking soda down the drain, follow with ½ cup white vinegar and then an acidic reaction should occur. Follow this step with hot water. You may need to repeat this process several times.
Method 3 involves using baking soda plus salt. Pour a cup of baking soda and ½ cup salt down the drain then let it sit for a few hours to overnight. Then, pour 2 cups of boiling water down the drain.
Last but not the least method 4 is to repurpose a metal wire hanger. Unbend a wire hanger and use it to snake down the drain to try pulling things out or push the clogged object through.
If all else fails, you will need to make the call to a drain unblocking company. Most local plumbing contractors have the tools and skill to unblock any type of blockage, whether the location is in the kitchen sink or a more serious blockage somewhere in the sewer mains. Blocked drains left untouched can lead to serious issues further down the line if they are not fixed immediately. If you notice the drainage system is beginning to block up make the call early and save yourself some time and money further down the line.

Door Delivery Advantage
Another unique factor that has turned the tables in the favor of ecommerce companies have been the door delivery advantage they offer. When Flipkart launched door delivery as early as in 2007, people were skeptical about it. But the phenomenal growth this ecommerce company has witnessed over the years attests to the fact that door delivery was a decision that worked out really well. Most of the ecommerce companies have their own logistics division that takes care of delivery and service, but some of them have agreements with courier service providers and even Indian Postal Service to cater to rural areas.
Contrary to popular perception, a significant chunk of growth was witnessed in tier 2 and tier 3 cities. With almost all major ecommerce companies competing in tier 1 cities, the scope for growth was limited. But with India is home to the world’s largest number of tier 2 and tier 3 cities, which was turned to their advantage by these companies. By signing agreements with local courier companies and thus assuring reliable logistics, they have been able to tap into this huge business opportunity big time.
The government has played its role by taking adequate measures to ensure smooth operations and also safeguarding the rights of their customers. All said and done, the ecommerce industry in India is expected to continue its phenomenal growth in the coming decade or so.
