Do you have any tips for clearing a sink clogged with grease? I've tried baking soda, vinegar, boiling water etc. still not much luck.

Yeah that makes sense. I think my mistake was in thinking that since it was just a grease clog there was no "big" thing down there clogging it in the first place, just a little grease here and there.
Do you have access to the p-trap? You might benefit from placing a container under the p-trap, unscrewing it and physicallly removong the gunk from there... then once the blockage is gone, quickly replace the p-trap cover. Also have towels handy...
It seems to be running at least marginally better now, so I think we're good for now, and the woman at Ace recommended a good build up remover I'll try next, becase I think our problem is just ongoing build up and not a big clog. Thanks!
Yes, I might need to go for the Drano. Was trying to avoid it, but might not have a choice.
Yeah I'll try the boiling water again. I think we have a drain snake somewhere - if not I may need to depend on a metal coat hanger :)
See if you have any picture hanging wire - it 's more flexible. Also after the boiling water, try a plunger which might dislodge the clog and send it on down--be careful not to get burned! Good luck.
