Step 1: Boil Water

Step 3: Add Vinegar
Since my sink was still clogged I had to go for the big guns.
I dumped about 1/2 cup of vinegar down the sink. Then I quickly covered the opening of the sink with a cup to keep the reaction of baking soda and vinegar from exploding into the sink.
After the fizzing went down, I poured the rest of the still boiling water down the sink, clearing up the clog.
