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:
- 1 clogged toilet (works best when someone has been overzealous with the toilet paper)
- A generous amount of surfactant (i.e., Dawn Dishwashing liquid, shampoo, liquid soap, or any other cleaner that gets sudsy)
- Hot (but not boiling) water
- A bucket or a basin to transport water to toilet
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.)
