What would you do if your toilet got clogged on a Saturday evening when the shops are closed and you are about to host a curry and beer party?
This instructable will show you a simple method for unclogging a toilet using hot water and shampoo. While there are other methods of clearing a toilet drain, this is a great option for unclogging a toilet because you don’t have to touch the water.
You will need:
This will only work with a toilet that is not overflowing and has some room to hold extra water.
(For squeamish people: The picture of the blocked toilet was not created with actual bodily excretions.)
Get your bottle of shampoo/ soap and squirt a generous amount into the bowl.
Follow that with a bucket of very hot water from the hot tap (not boiling).
Fill the toilet full but not overflowing.
The reason you should not use boiling is because it has been said that boiling water can cause the toilet bowl to crack (I have not personally tested this assertion though as I do not have the money to buy a new toilet).
Then go have a cup of tea and let the blockage 'marinate'.
