Quick & Easy Fix for a Clogged Toilet

Clogged toilets. Ugh. You flush. The water rises to the top of the bowl (and possibly over). You get out the plunger. Plunge. Plunge. Still clogged. You’re grossed out and frustrated. You reach for the Drain-o or other chemical solution. Plunge. Plunge. Plunge. You consider buying an auger, a toilet snake. Still very much grossed out.

I have the joy of living with a teenaged son who clogs my toilet on a regular (every 2-4 weeks) basis. I’ve been there wayyyy more times than I’d care to count. Nothing worse than a clogged toilet.

Finally I discovered a quick, easy and frugal way to fix the toilet.

Liquid dish soap.


Pour about a tablespoon of liquid dish soap into the clogged toilet and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. Come back and plunge and usually within 2 or 3 plunges everything goes down the drain easily again.

I’ve used this tip 5 times in the past 2 months and it’s worked like a charm each and every time.
