Ok bear with me, I know it sounds stupid and it is but PLEASE HELP WHAT DO I DO?? I DON'T WANT TO GET MY ASS WHOOPED (which i would've got anyway if i didn't eat the noodles). I tried pouring a bit of baking soda and boiling water down the drain but it didn't completely work and my mom's gonna get suspicious soon enough and i need it gone right NOW.

God i love being an idiot

Plunger. Get a plunger. Use the plunger to unblock the drain, then throw the noodles into the bin.

Also, why did you put them down the sink instead of eating them or putting them in the bin?
I don't think a plunger would work in it? It's a pretty tiny drain and the noodles have gone down pretty deep.

I have no excuses. Can I claim temporary insanity?

"Sorry i got some food down the plughole and it's acting a bit funny'

It's too hot for silly drama.

I'd suggest Spirit of Salt/Hydrochloric acid, as that will clear/eat any organic mess from plastic piping, but It's hugely dangerous to use it if you've ALREADY added chemicals, I'd give the plunger a try as it still might dislodge and break up the clog, make sure and block the overflow first.

Get a metal coat hanger. Unbend it till it’s straight and put it down the plug hole and keep pushing it down. Then some boiling water. Been there, done that when the grandchildren have emptied them down the plug hole and not put them in the bin.

Be careful with metal if you have plastic pipes ... a plunger is safer.

I suggest to buy or borrow a small plunger. Yes, that's what they're designed for. Or use a chemical strong enough to dissolve it. Alternatively, contact someone who is a plumber :mario:

Look under the sink find the Ubend also knwon as the plastic trap, place a bucket or bowl under it and unscrew and remove it - run water through the sink into the bucket underneath it will clear out the noodles into you bucket dispose of them down the loo or in an outiside grid or use a sieve to drain away the water from the bowl or bucket and then throw em into the bin probably want to put them into a small food bag first though.

i literally have no clue what to do when it comes to any form of plumbing, no tools either. now the water stands for a long time before draining and a few pieces keep swimming back up why did i do this to myself

The Ubend will probably be directly or almost directly underneath the plughole under the sink - 9/10 times you won't need any tools just use your own strength it will be a piece of pipe that bends in the shape of a letter U and will have two large plastic nuts holding it in place these can usually be unscrewed by hand.

You can't use a normal hoover as the water will break it.
