My kitchen sink is clogged. This is the worst clogg ever. I have plunged and plunged. I have also used the liquid plumber and it is still plugged. I am desperate for any advice.

Liquid Plumber Power Jet. http://www.liquidplumr.com/products/powerjet.html I have used this stuff before and it works like magic. I got mine at the grocery store. One time an apartment that I moved into both bathtubs were clogged really bad. I used this stuff and it worked great. It is like $4-$5 a can.

Do you have a garbage disposal attached to the sink? If so That could be the problem. Look on the side of the unit under the sink. The disposals usually have a re set button. That has worked for me.

An M-80 should do the trick. I guess you could snake it and push the clog through or yank it out, be prepared, its probably taken on a life of it own.

I usually try pouring in some baking soda and then slowly pour in vinegar, the bubbly action will dislodge foor particles..But if that doesn't work, then maybe something solid went down the drain or if you ever pour grease down the drain, that can be a pain to remove.. If you don't want to call a plumber, then for this there are two options..One is a plumbing snake..You might be able to rent one, I don't know, we have our own..Maybe you have family or a friend who has one and can either let you use it or they can do it..The next option would be to turn of the water source and remove the elbow part under the sink..If something is there, that is usually where it gets stuck.. I hope this helps, we have had many clogged drains in the pass, so I know the frustration of trying to clear one..

Get a snake from your hardware store. It's a long metal wire almost that you put in your sink drain, bathtub, wherever it clogs. It's worked for me lots of times. Since depending where you go they might be expensive, try some drano first, but if that dosen't work get the snake. you can use the snake over and over unlike liquid plummer and drano. But see if that works for you and lemme know how it works out,k? wishing you the best!
