How can I unclog a drain?

Nothing I've tried is working.

This depends on the type of drain. Main lines (sewer drains) will require specialized equipment. Sink drains can be cleared by taking apart the P-trap itself and clearing any debris. Tub and shower drains will also need specialized equipment. Plumbers use powered snakes to effectively clear drains.

This is a messy situation, you might want to try renting an electric hand snake from your local Do It Yourself Supply. This might be your only solution, the other option is to look for professional strength drain cleaner with acid content, this will smeel bad but will unclog most anything.
