Having a clogged sink can be both gross and annoying, but there's an easy solution to the problem. Instead of reaching for harsh chemical products, you can opt for a plastic auger that'll snag and remove whatever's blocking your pipes.

Right now on Amazon Canada, this 5-in-1 Sink Snake is just $17 — a great deal, even before Amazon Prime Day, which is taking place July 16-17. The sink snake is an "Amazon's Choice" product, which means it's a good price, highly rated and available to be shipped immediately.

This snake drain clog remover has five pieces, three of which are flexible plastic tools that come in three lengths. They insert easily into kitchen sinks, bathtubs and pretty much anything with a drain. Once inserted, you spin it around until you hit the clog. The clog then hooks onto the plastic teeth of the tool, which you then pull out of the drain and discard.

For clogs that can't be dislodged with the plastic teeth, you can opt for the metal tool. It also slides into drains with no fuss and has little claws that grasp the clog to remove it.

The 5-in-1 Sink Snake is under $20, and unlike chemical products, the snake pieces are reusable. That means you can keep them on hand for any future drainage issues after getting rid of your current clog.

Another said that it "worked like a charm" on their plugged shower stall and easily grabbed "a big, disgusting clump of hair" from the drain.

While the product has more than 8,000 five-star reviews, some do note that it can be hard to pull the clog through the drain. As well, another shared that the plastic takes a beating while doing its job and says that it's unlikely to last for more than three uses.

If you have a clogged drain, this handy tool will likely help you remove the problem with ease, and it's currently just $17 on Amazon Canada.

However, some say it's hard to pull the clog through the drain opening and that it might not be as reusable as you'd think due to wear and tear. Something to keep in mind!
