A mild home-made drain cleaner can be used to clean the drain pipes after the larger debris has be pulled out. The reaction caused by combining two common and inexpensive household products can help to break down the mucky build-up on the inside of the drain pipes.

U finally replaced the entire sink drain, p-trap etc. all the way to the point where it connects to the cast iron 1 pipe T inside the wall.

Hold a wet cloth tightly over one sink drain to seal it and set the plunger over the other drain. Plunge up and down vigorously for about 20 seconds.
Touch-free faucet breaks chain of germ transmission and reduces illness.

My bathroom sink is simple enough that the pipes and pop-up assembly do not require any special tools to take apart and put together. The only tool I employed besides my hands was an old tooth brush.

is a handy tool to keep near your drains. I have one at home and in the rv.

Our local Lowes carry them for less than $3.

I too am very disappointed with the bathroom sink stopper on our brand new Jayco. Pretty useless and cheap!

It may have been mentioned already but a properly sized O Ring works perfectly to hold the stopper just up enough to allow water to drain.

Timely thread for me, I almost dropped my wedding ring in the grey tank thanks to that worthless drain plug. I have to strip search myself before I even use that sink now. (sorry for the TMI) At least now I have some options thanks to this thread

That's what I use.

You can get a set of O-Rings for water hoses at your local home improvement store. It comes with some that are round, and some that are flat. The flat ones I use in my water hoses, the round ones I use on the sink stopper.

Fixing this is next on my mod list. I plan to just replace the P trap and faucet assembly with one that has a pull up plunger on the faucet to open and close the stopper. Just like the ones in our house. Will look for a light, small and cheap one and see if that will fit. This is a really stupid design to save a few bucks.
