Scoopable kitty litter was put in toilet. Wouldn't go down, your website told me to use mouthwash. I had a few ounces of mouthwash. I poured it in plunged and it flushed. I was truly amazed!. I had been plunging and flushing and nothing. I put in a little mouthwash and away it went. Next I was going to try dish soap and hot water. I didn't need to.

Source: I had done a search for "clogged toilet" and found your website and it told me to try mouthwash. It worked. Thank you so much.

This worked surprisingly well for me but when I tried using the toilet again afterwards it arill backed up. How often can I use the mouthwash to unclog the drain?

This IS amazing same thing happened to me and was about to try the baking soda-vinegar solution that takes hours to see if it worked, but saw mouthwash idea and thought it doesn't hurt to try. Poured some in the toilet, waited about 1 minute and flushed. WHOOSH! Unclogged immediately! Thanks for the tip.

Cat litter causes more problems than just clogged toilets. It can go down the toilet and you forget about it but then it can stop up your drain pipe to the street.


Or if you have a septic tank it can clog that.
