How To: Make a Mini-Snake for Your Bathroom Drain.

Tiny plumbing problems in the kitchen or bathroom sink may require the work of a professional, OR, you may be able to get them figured out with one of these: a handmade mini-snake for minor plumbing drama. This simple combo of some thin stainless steel wire and a pair of needlenose pliers might just de-gunk your drains, and then stores easily for future use. “Simply bend several individual wires (not strands) out in different directions from the center of the cable so that when rotated, the strands will snag hair in the clogged drain.”
