No Plunger? No Problem | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

You don’t need a plunger to unclog your toilet. But, if you can’t get it cleared, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.

You spent part of the day relaxing at Pine Island only to return home to a bit of stress when your toilet clogged. Even worse, you didn’t have a plunger.

Not to worry. You really don’t need a plunger to get rid of many toilet clogs. All you need is a regular sized box of baking soda and up to a gallon of vinegar, according to thespruce.com.

If your toilet has backed up and has overflowed or is about to overflow, you’re going to need to clear out the bowl a bit.

“Grab a garbage bag and empty any solid contents into it and fasten for disposal. Then you will want to dip out the excess water with a bucket or other container and dispose of it in another toilet (or in the toilet once it is unclogged),” the spruce.com says.

Do NOT skip that step or you will get a real mess on your floor.

After you’ve made room in the toilet, you simply dump in the contents of the box of baking soda and slowly start to pour in the vinegar.

” It will create a foaming action as it comes into contact with the baking soda,” thespruce.com says. ” You don’t want to dump it all in as you will have a frothy mess erupting from your toilet. Instead, slowly add up to a gallon of vinegar and get the action started but under control.”

Wait awhile then flush. Follow by pouring hot (not boiling) water into the bowl to clear out any last debris. Boiling water can crack the bowl, thespruce.com says. 

If that doesn’t work, you can try straightening out a wire coat hanger and probing the clog.

If that doesn’t work, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
