5 DIY Ways to Unclog Your Clogged Toilet Drain
Having a clogged toilet is more than just an inconvenience. It can bring become troublesome for homeowners who are not sure how to handle the problem. However, if you are a DIY enthusiast, then all you need might be some knowledge of some household solutions available and you can try to handle the job on your own. Here are 5 DIY ways to get your clogged drain free of obstruction.
- Baking Soda and Vinegar
Put 1/3 cup vinegar and 1/3 cup baking soda in a medium sized measuring cup, and mix them together. The mixture will instantly give a fizz, and do not waste a minute pouring the mixture down your drain with clogs. It is important to have the ingredients measured carefully to prevent an accident on the floor of the bathroom.
- Pour some hot water
Pouring hot water is a method to unclog the drain fast as the choked obstacle may be dissolved by it. Start by boiling a kettle of water and pour the boiling water into your toilet. Follow this up with vinegar and a kettle of hot water. Pour the water into your toilet bowl, and wait a while to find out whether the clog has gone.
- Use a bent wire hanger
Get out a standard wire coat hanger and use force to have it straightened as straight as possible. Bend over one end to shape it like a small hook. Push the hook past the cover of the drain, and begin to get out whatever is stuck inside. This will help you to remove all types of unpleasant stuff, such as hair, from the drain. Take care not to push the stuff further, but pull them out, if possible. Once you have got out as much as possible from the toilet drain, you may want to pour hot water to clear up any residuals in the toilet drain.
- Use a drain snake
A drain snake is an affordable plumbing tool that can give wonderful results to resolve a clogged toilet drain. This piece of equipment is very flexible and has a long metal rope with a metal spiral end. You can insert it and push it to remove the stuff that has caused the blockage in the toilet drain.
- Use dish detergent
In case of a blocked toilet bowl, you can try pouring a quarter cup of dish detergent into it. This can be a useful attempt to unclog the drain pipe. Next, boil some water. The dish detergent will lubricate and degrade any residue of greasy materials. Pour down the boiling water, and start plunging. If the situation persists even after using the plunger, the next best option is to use rubber gloves.
