4 Simple, Green Ways to Unblock a Toilet
1. The Tap Trick
When you notice that the trouble starts, it is the right moment to use the tap trick. You should firmly tap on the backside of the bowl with shoes. In about 70 percent of the cases, this will unclog minor problems.
2. The Hot Water Trick
If tap trick doesn’t work, try to pour a can of hot water into the toilet. You must pour water very quick. If you can’t unclog with hot water, it’s time to go on further.
3. Baking Soda and Vinegar
You can unblock a drain by pouring one cup of baking soda and one cup of vinegar. The assumption is that there is not too much water so the mixtures will not be diluted when pouring it into the bowl. If there is too much water, move on to use boiling water and dish detergent trick.
4. The Boiling Water and Dish Detergent Trick
While waiting for the kettle to boil, pour a quarter cup of green dish detergent on the lodged place. Wish luck and very carefully pour it into the water. Otherwise, we will go to a slightly messy method.

6. Rubber Gloves
You will not do this, that’s for sure if you have a weak stomach, but sometimes, you can’t avoid removing some large obstructions manually. You never know what you can encounter when you start with digging because plumbers have found all kind of things, like cell phones, underwear, etc.
7. The Snake
For around £25 at the hardware store, you can purchase what is called a manual toilet snake. This handy device passes through the toilet to break a blockage. This could be a little dirty. The tool is helpful when the blockage is more in-depth into the pipe than the toilet bowl. If this method doesn’t work, you should try again and then call a plumber! Note: Do not use a hanger for clothes instead of a snake, because it can scratch the porcelain surface of the toilet bowl.
