I know it's because DH insists on filling the washing up bowl with fatty pans and then leaving the water to go cold....
What can I do that doesn't involve great expense?

if it's just congealed fat - try pouring copious amounts of boiling water (from the kettle) down the drain. It can take a while.

Otherwise, you can buy drain unblockers at any supermarket for between £3 and £5 which work well.
