Unclogging Cat Litter from a Toilet

I made the mistake of throwing a large clump of clumping kitty litter down the toilet. Here are some tricks I used to unclog it:

  • Remove any toilet paper, etc. from the clogged toilet.

  • For overnight (or after 4 hours), combine 2 cups of white vinegar and 2 tablespoons of baking soda in a glass cup and pour that into the clogged toilet.

  • The next morning, take 3 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid (I used Dawn) and pour that into the toilet. Immediately pour 3 cups of hot water into the toilet and let that sit for an hour and a half.

  • After it has sat, try to flush. Stop the flush if it seems like the toilet water is going to overflow. Then pour 8 to 10 teapots full of boiling hot water into the toilet. Pour boiling water into the clogged toilet, with back to back pours, waiting about 1 minute and 1/2 in between pours.

My teapot holds 9 cups of water. The clog should clear up after pouring in the boiling hot water.

Careful you don't damage the plastic seal around the toilet. Hot water can distort it, then you have a major repair.
