Ways to Unclog a Toilet That Won't Drain

Bathroom business is personal and not something we like to discuss with an audience, but the truth of the matter is that everyone has faced a clogged toilet. You don’t have to be ashamed about it.


We are so used to our toilets flushing that when it doesn’t, we don’t know how to unclog it. Believe it or not, there are several ways to unclog a stubborn toilet.


Here are three ways to unclog your toilet:

    The Plunger

    A plunger is the quickest way to unclog a toilet. Plungers should be a common household item. There are many different types of plungers. Flat plungers are made to better suit surfaces around drains, while a plunger with a flange is better designed for the curve of your toilet.


    Here are a few tips to get the best results from your plunger:


    1. Place your plunger into your toilet bowl and gently push down until you get your plunger sealed to the toilet. The gentle push is to get rid of the air trapped in the plunger. If you push too hard, toilet water is going to shoot out at you.


    2. Once you have a good seal, push the plunger up and down with force. Remember to maintain your sealed plunger.


    3. After this, pull your plunger up to break the seal. Water should rush down the drain of your toilet, unclogging it. Repeat these steps until the clog is gone.


    Baking Soda and Vinegar

    These two items are non-toxic, common cleaning supplies. Baking soda and vinegar are also great deodorizers and help keep your drains running smoothly.


    Here’s how to use baking soda and vinegar to unclog your toilet:


    1. Add a cup of baking soda to your clogged toilet and wait two minutes.


    2. Slowly pour two cups of vinegar into the toilet. The baking soda and vinegar would react, making bubbles.


    3. Allow the mixture to sit for several minutes.


    4. Flush the toilet to see if the clog is gone.


    Dish Soap and Hot Water

    Don’t have a plunger or baking soda and vinegar? Try this handy dish soap and hot water:


    1. Heat a gallon of water on the stove.


    2. As the water is heating up, add dish soap.


    3. Do not let the water boil. Let the water get hot and pour it into your toilet.


    4. Wait several minutes for the hot water and dish soap to soften the clog.


    5. Try flushing and see if your toilet is clog-free.
