Foreign objects: Kids playing close to the toilet may be the root cause. Shampoo bottles, toys, toothbrushes are just some of the things that can become stuck in your plumbing system after getting flushed.

Simple clogs:
This is caused when you flushed too much toilet paper down the drain. Non-water soluble items like paper towels, diapers and tampons get stuck in there commonly as well.

Things to Try Before Calling A Plumber

With a little ingenuity, your clogged toilet can be fixed quickly.

Everybody knows the best way to unclog a toilet is by using a plunger – preferably a flanged plunger. Start by plunging gently just to get rid of the air. Don’t press down too hard and splash yourself! Once you’ve gotten a good seal you can forcefully plunge up and down – then sharply pull on the plunger and the water should rush down the drain. If the clog still isn’t fixed, repeat until the clog is loosened.

Baking Soda and Vinegar is a great method when you don’t have a plunger handy. Pour one cup of baking soda down the clogged toilet. Wait a few minutes. Next, slowly pour two cups of vinegar inside the toilet. Their combined reaction forms bubbles… you should allow the baking soda and vinegar mixture to work for several minutes before attempting to unclog the toilet.

If none of these repairs unclog your toilet, you may have a bigger plumbing issue and you need to call an expert. Clarke & Rush professionals are available to handle any bathroom plumbing emergency.

You can also try dish soap and hot water if these last options didn’t work. Heat up a gallon of hot water on your stove. Squirt a bunch of dish soap inside the toilet. When your water gets hot but before it reaches its boiling point, pour it carefully inside your toilet. Wait several minutes for the soap and hot water to do its thing. You can also try hot water and shampoo if you’re trying to clean the toilet without leaving the bathroom.
