In this helpful video tutorial, Melissa Maker of Clean My Space shows us an extraordinarily easy way to unclog any toilet without the use of a plunger — and yes, she assures us that it works like a charm in a no-fuss, no-muss way.
First, place a few towels around the base of the toilet. Then, squeeze a cup of dish liquid into the bowl. With a bucket or large pot, add into the toilet bowl as much hot water as you can without overfilling the toilet. Then, wait 15-20 minutes for the concoction to do its job. The detergent seeps into the clog, lubricating the trapway and freeing the clog. Plus, you get an even cleaner toilet bowl… so it’s really a two-for-one deal.
After 20 minutes, you should see that the water level has sank — but don’t flush yet. Fill bucket with hot water and pour it into the toilet bowl one more time. Then, you can flush.
