The next time you're tearing out your hair when toilet clogs up yet again, try this declogging trick if you don't have a plunger or if plunging doesn't work. I spotted this tip on Lifehacker and decided to test it out the next time my toilet acts up. I was a disbeliever until I tried it, and it actually worked! Here's what you need to do:
- When your toilet clogs up, squeeze at least three squirts of dishwashing liquid into the bowl. The chemicals can help to break up the debris.
- Pour in hot water into the bowl. I poured in around four cups of water that I heated up.
- Let everything soak for a while before attempting to flush. I left it for a few hours, and it worked! And if you really want to make sure it works, you can use a plunger after you let the mixture soak in for five minutes.
