Hi:

I have a bathroom sink that's fully of dirty water that hasn't gone down for days and I've tried heavy-duty liquid to get it unclogged such as Liquid Fire and Liquid-Plumbr (Industrial Strenth Urgent Clear) with no results except to have the air full of toxic fumes.

I live in a mobile home with plastic pipes for plumbing.

Thanks in advanced for any helpful advice.

Sometimes it's hair, toothpaste, shaving cream, messy stuff in the vertical down to the p-trap.
An easy step is to remove the p-trap, and the stopper, normally held by the rod at the back which unthreads and pulls out.
Clean up the stopper, and taking a long stick, push some paper towel down the drain into a bowl after the p-trap has been removed.
