What is a drain auger?

An auger is similar to a drain snake, but specializes in removing clogs and objects/obstructions from the drain. To remove the clog, insert the auger into the drain and turn it clockwise until you reach the clog. If there is an object/obstruction, the auger will attach to it to pull it out. Then pull the auger out. Do this a few times until the drain is unclogged.
