My sink drain stinks in my bathroom
I’ve put those lemon sticks down there, Clorox, vinegar, tile x .. you name it, I have put it down there and it smells like mold/sulfur.! I Live In Destin, FL and we actually have good tap water.

I’m a clean dude by the way. I don’t know what else to do. MF stinks.

Does anybody any constructive suggestions?

Did you try drano as well? Sounds like the stuff you've tried is scent masking but not addressing the problem. You need to dissolve whatever is lodged in there making it stink.

Is your sink near your hot water heater? Check the drip pan to see if it’s backed up.

Soap scum buildup. Change out your p-trap pipes and that should do the trick.

Yea man. I live in an old house and had this issue. Took a few weeks of ignoring the smell before I called the plumber to diagnose the problem.

Stop peeing in the sink. I know it saves a couple feet of walking and the time it takes to flush, but you can't do it all the time.

Just from taking a look at your sig pic it looks like you may have tried sucking the clog out yourself........you might want to try a wet-dry vac.

And a Tic-Tac.

Do you have a P trap in the drain under the sink? That is what is supposed prevent sewer gas from backing up into the house.
