If you have a problem with a clogged toilet and at the moment you can not find a plunger, we suggest you to try this trick from Brit at Build TV. However do not guarantee that will be successful every time. Many people have written and say that it worked for them on numerous occasions. In this video below Brit uses dish soap but others have said liquid laundry detergent works even better.
How to unclog a toilet without a plunger simply:
First pour a big amount of liquid soap into your toilet bowl, about half a cup. The soap is denser and heavier than water and should drop to the bottom of the bowl.
Than let the liquid dish soap sit in the bowl for 20 – 30 minutes. Over time the soap will seep into the clog lubricating the trap way.
After about 20 minutes fill up a container with hot water and pour it into the bowl. Make sure not to overflow the toilet bowl. Slowly the clog should work it’s way free.
This does not work for all clogs but still, many people reported success by repeating these steps few times in a row, if the clog is not clean after the first time.
