Find yourself with a clogged toilet and no plunger in sight? Take a breath, we’re here to help. We’ve got a few bathroom hacks to keep in mind in case you find yourself up the creek without a paddle:
Dish soap and hot water: This technique requires a toilet that is not overflowing. You’ll need to squirt some dish soap or shampoo into the toilet, followed by a gallon of very hot water. After a few minutes, the hot water should break up the clogged paper as the soap helps it slide down the pipe.You may need to repeat until all debris is gone.
Baking soda and vinegar: Long known for unclogging drains, this mix can also unclog toilets. Just pour your baking soda into the bowl followed with equal parts white vinegar. Wait a few minutes for the two to react and flush it with hot water. Repeat as necessary until the clog is released.
