Bathroom sink clogged
I just tried to clear a slow bathroom sink drain and now it is totally blocked. The shower and toilet are fine but the bathroom sink is now backed up solid. I used a crystal drain cleaner and after running water thru I used a plunger, then the back up came and itthe sink filled up with what looks like muddy water.

I have snake that i want to use but I thought I'd get some advise first, any help would be appreciated.

Wearing rubber gloves and eye protection (since you already used a caustic drain cleaner), remove the trap and clean it out. Then run the snake down the piping.

>>>I used a crystal drain cleaner<<<
Drain cleaners are usually a waste of money, and they can cause major problems when mixed. :no:
