comment What kind of drain rod do I need to get around this bend?
This is obviously a small hand held unit, but a larger (optionally powered auger) works in the same manner and will get around tight bends.

comment Dishwasher doesn't remove all the soap
I would have thought the problem is a lack of rinse-aid, not too much
