Works great; make sure to block the top of the drain after the mix... first 1 cup baking soda, then 1 cup vinegar; make sure to get all the soda "inside" the drain. Then right after you pour in the vinegar use a plunger to "close" off the top and make the chemical reaction go down. After a few minutes get it a few plunges and rinse with hot water.
BEWARE: If you do this in a condo or apartment setting it's SO effective it will clog your neighbors drains.... happen when we did it at my step dads condo. We did this to his kitchen sink and all the 1st floor condo's got clogged!
