The first problem is the clogged toilet. Many factors can cause this problem. We don’t need to mention them here. We believe you understand what kind of those factors that cause the clogged toilet and make it can’t be flushed. But, we have a solution here. First of all, you can use the plunger to give the air pressure and push the object that blocks the toilet to make it unblocked. This is the standard method to solve the toilet that won’t flush.

–        Dish Washing Liquid Method

This method is easy to do. First of all, you need to take a bottle of liquid soap you usually use for washing your dishes. Then, pour enough amount of soap liquid into the clogged toilet bowl. Once you do that, prepare a bucket of hot water. Then, pour it into the clogged toilet bowl where you poured the liquid soap before. Wait for 20 to 30 minutes. You will see that the water level in the clogged toilet bowl decrease.

But, do not flush it yet. Pour another bucket of hot water in it. Then, you wait again. Hopefully, this second bucket will unclog your toilet completely.  Now, once you see the water level decrease significantly, try to flush it and see if its water level goes back t normal.

–        Using Toilet Snake

Next method is using a toilet snake. You can easily find it at the store. This tool can help you to clean the toilet pipe from anything that blocks it. You just need to put it into the clogged toilet and move it around. This will help you solve the problem.

Now, if you don’t have time to go to the store and buy a toilet snake, you can make your own toilet snake. What you need here is a hanger. Choose the hanger that has a plastic coating. The plastic coating will protect your finger when you move it around inside the toilet bowl. Moreover, it also can stick really well with the duct tape that you will use next.

The first thing you need to do is unwind the hanger. Once you do that, you will have a long wire of steel that you can easy to manipulate. Next, wrap a rug at the end of the wire and use the duct tape to make it fixed in one place. This is the main reason why you should use the hanger with plastic coating. The duct tape will stick really well on this surface and keep the rug in one place.

Now, put the end with rug into the toilet bowl and move it around to clean the object inside. If you do it correctly, the water will gradually decrease. Once you think its back into normal water level, try to flush it. And, your toilet problem is solved.

–        Drain Cleaner

Or, if you want to the safest method, use the natural drain cleaner product. You can easily find it at the store.

Or, if you don’t want to buy, you can make your own drain cleaner. What you need here is a ½ cup of baking soda and 2 cups of vinegar. Just pour these two into the clogged toilet bowl. Wait for at least one hour, and flush it out.


Basically, if your toilet won’t flush because it is clogged by something; you can use the method above. With those methods, you can fix the clogged toilet easier.
