Top 7 Alternatives to Using a Plunger to Fix a Clogged Toilet

It only takes a fast trip to the restroom and one flush to end up with a clogged drain or, even worse, a nearly overflowing toilet.

Think about your other unclogging choices before calling a plumber if you don’t have a plunger or if using a plunger doesn’t work. It is possible to fix a clogged toilet or stop an overflowing toilet using only what you already have on hand in your medicine cabinet or kitchen pantry.

Here’s how to fix a clogged toilet (and make sure to wear protective gloves).

2. Dish Duty

If you need to speed up the process of unclogging the toilet, grab some dish soap from the kitchen and pour roughly a 1/4 cup into the bowl.

Allow the soap to sit for 5-10 minutes to allow it to work its way down the drain and loosen the clog. Finally, fill the bowl with hot (but not boiling) water and let it sit for a while.

Dish soap can often be used to grease up a clogged toilet drain and get water flowing freely again.
