Take another look at the sentence:

Falling into the sink, Claudine brushed her long hair, which got washed down the drain and clogged the pipes.

Falling into the sink, a participle phrase, comes right before Claudine, an illogical target. Really, it's logical that hair, not a woman, fell into a sink!

Before you continue, review the rules for misplaced and dangling modifiers.
