The simplest type is a coiled spring steel cable with one end slightly bigger. Feed the big end into the drain twisting it as you put it in. At some point, you will come up ag…ainst the clog. Screw the cable into the clog and pull it back out of the drain. The majority of clogs are hair related. You will pull out what looks like a wet mouse. Sometimes when you are feeding the cable in it feels like it hits something. This may just be a bend in the pipe. Push and turn the cable and it should go past the bend. If the clog is grease related, just going through the clog may be enough to open the drain and then use a chemical cleaner to finish the job.
