I've used nothing because my bathroom sink drain has never been problematic.

This works great! Don't pay any attention to the "one-time use" statement". That's just a "lawyer" thing because it has sharp barbs!

OP are you having a problem with your drain, or just checking if you should do anything special to prevent a future problem? Just don't let hair go down the drain.

We've taking to using these things on all the drains in the coach. it keeps the little stuff out and are easily cleaned by simply banging them into a garbage can. They're a cheap and easy solution that will save you headaches in the future!

every three months i use this to force water through the pipes.
i also have a 12' tube 1/4 od flexible poly pipe ($4.00) i attach to a garden hose and fish it through the flexible undersink drain to blow out grease build up

all parts are easy to find at lowes or hd

In all my years of RV'ing (since 1957) I've never had a problem with a drain that required cleaning out the trap.

What do you do at home?

Same drain piping..same components......even same 'P' trap

Why just the bathroom sink......kitchen sink is same?

IF you are having slow draining going on.......
Remove 'P' trap, clean it out, reinstall
If after cleaning and drain is still slow.......
Check grey tank vent line from roof. Could be obstructed........no air out then water has hard time going in to tank
