Emptied a Hello Fresh ice pack in my sink and immediately realized I screwed up. Gel substance surrounding the ice block clogged my pipe. Tried snake drain to no avail. Water level went down like for a 5 millimeters in couple hours. Please help! Draino? Plumber necessary? Chattanooga, TN

If you have a slip joint p-trap under the sink, take that trap apart. Clean it or replace it.

If the clog goes beyond that, you would want a snake to clean further.

If you have a glued trap, have a plumber clean, rod, and replace the trap with a slip joint trap.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
