When washing your face, brushing your teeth, or shaving, use a drain strainer to catch any hair or debris before it goes down the drain.
Regularly cleaning your bathroom sink drain can help prevent buildup of soap scum, hard water minerals and other debris that can lead to clogs. Follow the steps above (use salt, baking soda, and vinegar) at least once a month, on an ongoing basis.
Do not flush any objects down the bathroom sink drain, like tissues or toys, as they can cause clogs. Use bins or trash cans to dispose of these things.
Too much soap residue can clog up your drain, less is more, a little goes a long way, and even less is required with liquid soap. Use lesser water as well which would help in avoiding clogging.
