3 Easy Ways To Unclog A Toilet

Use a Plunger: This is, of course, the classic method for getting rid of toilet clogs, and still probably the most effective if you can find a plunger nearby. 

Push this plunger down gently to get rid of clogs, repeating the process a few times while keeping the tight seal. You should see the water rush down the drain if the clog is taken care of. If you are not able to get rid of the clogged drain after several times of repeating this process, you may have to call a professional plumber.

Combine Baking Soda & Vinegar: The combination of baking soda and vinegar is a classic way to get rid of clogs—toilet or otherwise. For toilet clogs specifically, add one cup of baking soda to your toilet and let it sit for a few minutes. 

After that, pour in two cups of vinegar. Make sure to pour slowly, as you don’t want the bubbly, chemical reaction these two products cause to come jumping out of your toilet. Once you have let the entire mixture sit for several minutes, flush the toilet and see if your clog has cleared.

Snake It Out: In the plumbing world, a “snake,” also sometimes called an “auger,” is a tool used to break up drain clogs. Snakes can include everything from disposable plastic tools to complicated metal devices. 

For toilet clogs specifically, we recommend the more professional kind, with a handle on the end. Insert the device into your toilet, slowly turning the handle until you have found the clog and punctured it.
