To unclog a drain with standing water, start by clearing any visible blockage by putting on rubber gloves and pulling it out. If there’s still standing water around the drain, scoop the water out with a bucket. Then, place your plunger over the entirety of the drain and push the handle in and out to move deeper blockages towards the surface.

You can put petroleum jelly on the lip of the plunger to help it stick to the surface of the sink. When you hear the plunger sucking and clearing the clog, put it away from the sink and pour hot water in the drain.
