If you have an acrylic countertop, rub down with hand dishwashing liquid and warm soapy water. Follow up with a squirt of vinegar to disinfect the counter. If you have a wood or marble countertop, you cannot use vinegar. You will have to use an all-purpose cleaner beside soapy water. If you have a corian counter, use soapy water and then follow up with a nontoxic glass cleaner to give it a good shine.
When you live in rural areas or far away from any area that has a drain covers plastic, you need some kind of backup system to catch the drainage from toilets, sinks, and bathtubs. To install these systems, it cost a lot of money and they need to be replaced about once every twenty years, if it is properly taken care of. It seems like a hassle, but some of the things that you have to consider can get a little annoying, but you should get used to it. You are not supposed to flush anything down the toilet except toilet paper and even then you should use as little as possible. Some stores even sell toilet paper specifically for these systems.
Remove the drainage inlet grates (www.ggdg.co) with a screw driver, and insert the straightened coat hanger into the drain. You should be able to manipulate the coat hanger and pull out the blockage.

If that's not it, or there's another clog down the way, removing the trap gives you access to the wall patio trench drain. Use your cable auger here. Feed the end of the auger into the wall "stub out" until you hit the clog. Pull an extra 15-18 inches of cable off the crank of the cable auger and tighten the locking screw. Crank the handle in a clockwise direction and push forward to drive the spiral tip through the clog and deeper into the Plastic floor grating. Repeat the steps until you either bog down or you make it all the way through the clog. Then, pull the cable auger back out of the wall; it should bring the majority of the clog with it.
