How can I unclog my toilet?
Toni from Windsor Locks, CT
I own a motel and I have a lot of clogged toilet issues. I had one toilet that I plunged for seven days straight and didn't think it would ever work right again. I used the squirt of Dawn dish soap and the pot of boiling water poured in the bowl, and it worked! I won't bother buying all of the expensive products any more, this simple technique really works.
Fortunately the toilet was clean, I bailed out all the water except for a cup or two, filled it with a cup of Dawn soap. I poured in a large pan filled with boiling water from some height so as to force the water down the toilet and push the soap as far down as possible. I plunged for about 30 seconds and left it sit for 15 minutes. I returned and plunged for about 2 minutes and it broke free. I hoped, but didn't think this would work. I'm convinced.
