Underneath the sink you will see what is called the P-trap, U shaped and is at the bottom of the drain down pipe. Remove this and see if the problem is there.

SOURCE: kitchen sink drain loose
You can probably tighten it from the bottom. But first, get a little plumber putty from the hardware store and put it around the seal from the topside of the sink. As you tighten it down, it will squeeze out a bit, but that is okay. Good luck!

The small disk right under the strainer is adjustable and has a lock nut. You will need to try and adjust this. If it doesn't work, the I would sugest replaceing them. They aren't that expensive plus they are easy to replace. Good luck!

SOURCE: clogged sinks and toilets
Never use Draino on a toilet. All pipe cleaning liquids are not really a solution, just a temporary fix.
Since you said that the slow draining is associated with both the toilets and the sinks then I am almost certain that you have a venting issue.
Imagine a drinking straw.....now if you hold your thumb on the end of the straw and bring it up abouve the water level water remains in the straw. This is because air can't get in to replace the water. When your finger is removed then the water flows freely.
As with the straw, your plumbing must also breath. I would bet that one or more vents that are on your roof have become clogged with debrise. Squirrels love to throw nuts and stuff down there to build their nests upon.
Climb up there (safety is a priority) and try running a snake (~$10 at lowes) and see if you hit any obstruction. If so, use the snake to dislodge it.
If you would like, pour water down the vents either by hose or bucket and see if the water backs up. If it does then you have a clog. You can also use the water to try to clear the clog.

Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.

Welcome to FixYa
As the water
did not drain completely then check the drain hose & drain pump filter for
any clogs/obstructions, if you have already cleaned these parts and the unit
will not work then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get
back to me if you have any other questions.
