How to Unclog a Toilet

There’s never a good time to plunge a toilet, but clogs seem to happen at the most inopportune moments. Fortunately, you can clear most clogs yourself without having to pay a plumber. Follow these steps, and you should have the problem cleared up before the in-laws come over for dinner…

The steps are fairly simple and easy to follow that even a novice, aspiring handy man can actually do. If you are looking for natural and environment-friendly items to get rid of a toilet blockage, rely on baking soda and vinegar. In one article we found online, baking soda is mixed with vinegar to remove the clog. And we quote,

“A good way to remove lingering particles that can reclog a toilet, pour a mixture of ½ cup baking soda and ½ cup vinegar down the clogged drain. Let the mixture sit in the drain for several minutes, and then rinse with hot water. Repeat the process if necessary” (See full article here.)
