What To Use To Unclog a Toilet. Your 2023 Homeowners Guide!

When you’re faced with clogged toilets, you undoubtedly need a quick and easy solution that will get your system functioning back as it should.

Fortunately, we have some solutions.

If you’re fortunate enough to have a plunger handy, it’s a relatively straightforward process: first, turn off the water supply and get rid of excess water with a cup or any other suitable container.


Get a half cup of dish soap or liquid hand soap, and pour it into your toilet bowl. Ensure there’s enough water to move down your drain, and then let the soap sit for 10 minutes.

Dish Soap

Get ready two cups of white vinegar and one cup of baking soda. Now, pour the cups into the toilet bowl one cup at a time. Once you’ve poured in every cup, let the solution sit for a half hour.

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Boiling water can crack your bowl’s porcelain, so only add hot water. Pour this warm water into the toilet and let it sit for a few minutes. Then flush the toilet.

Hot Water

The first step is to unravel the wire hanger to form one continuous rod. Then with great caution, push the wire hanger down the drain to unclog the toilet.

Wire Coat Hanger

The unclogging process is more or less the same as the wire hanger unclog. However, augers are designed specifically not to scratch your drain, which lets you clear a clog without having to worry about damaging your toilet.
