It is very similar to the post below. Finally managed to get some of the gunk
on a snake and it does not feel greasy at all. It is a hard wad in the pipe cuz
snake won't go thru but the stuff we got out was soft and malleable. No odor.
Did not feel greasy. I too am extremely cautious about grease in the sink. I
wipe everything with a paper towel first. I put in a new garbage disposal today
and that changed nothing. HELP.
That waxy stuff could be a soap/grease residue. I was wondering if a
lye solution would work but if it would do any damage to the garbage
New disposal is certainly not going to fix a clogged drain too.

A garbage disposal is not going to clear a gunked up drain. You have to clear
it and chemicals probably won't do the job. Best would be a proper snake to
ream it. If you don't have the equipment, call a pro.
