A toilet cleaning brush was pushed down deep in the toilet to push the water down, and the handle broke and the brush is stuck all the way down in the toilet, how do I get the brush out and unclog the toilet?
By Robert from LI
Just wanted to say. I have today had the exact same problem. After putting hand down the toilet with some bleach down, I have wiggled and maneuvered the brush head I got it to the end of the bend n when I couldnt move it any further, I poured hot water from the tap n left it it a while n got a pair of pliers n pulled like mad n sure enough it came out. Try it n if it works for people. Great.. Wot a challenge.
How do I get the brush out
Ok so my toilet brush was stuck in my toilet and I was freaking out. I pulled and pulled as hard as i could and i ended up breaking the handle by accident which actually helped me. It was alot easier to get just the brush out so I took a hold of that and yanked it out! Its broken but it's better than a broken toilet.
How do I fix a toilet brush stuck in the toilet
I have had a plumber come out and taken the toilet off the floor. Several people have tried to get it out. The toilet base has several bends in it which makes it more difficult. Can anyone help as it seems I will have to get a new toilet? That will be a problem with the tiles on the floor and the wall.
We had the same thing happen. Removed the toilet and tried for several days to get the broken piece of the brush out to no avail. Had to purchase and install a new toilet.
The toilet brush stuck in the toilet and I tried to take it out, but couldn't reach. Any way I can take it out by myself, from the toilet bowl, without a plumber?

You might have to call in a professional plumber to take care of the problem. (01/09/2008)
What about trying a pair of tongs to get the sponge out? Or bend a small hook on the end of a wire coat hanger and try to grab the edge of the head of the sponge? (01/09/2008)
They is a "gadget" you can buy at the home improvement stores that's inexpensive. I visited my daughter once when her toilet was stopped up and she could not afford a plumber. I pulled out a toy in a matter of minutes. Everyone with kids should have one of these things. They save a lot of plumber bills. (01/10/2008)
Just stick your hand down the toilet and your problems are all solved! Your welcome. (01/11/2008)

Just to clarify the brush thing is "not" visible and I have tried to reach it with a toilet "auger", coat hanger wire, and my hand. I think I'm going to take the toilet off and try to reach it. (01/12/2008)
Did you try a plunger? Pour a bucket of water in the toilet bowl, push the plunger just until you have suction, and then pull back hard to loosen the sponge. I wish you luck. (01/13/2008)
