How To Unclog A Toilet Without A plunger

When it comes to dealing with a blocked toilet, there are a few basic steps you can take. Unfortunately, many homeowners resort to using plunger methods because they mistakenly believe that these tools are the only way to clear a clogged toilet. This is not the case. In this blog post, we will teach you how to unclog a toilet without the use of plunger, using simple techniques that you can use in the event of a clogged toilet. By following these steps, you will be able to save yourself time and trouble down the road.

Unclogging a Toilet with Bathroom Drains

If you have a clogged toilet and don’t have a plunger, try this simple method: Pour about a gallon of cold water into the toilet bowl. Place the stopper from the drain hose of your bathtub on the open end of the toilet drain and turn on the faucet so that the water is flowing. Drop several small objects, like pebbles or coins, into the water to create a vortex. Put your hands around the top of the toilet and push down firmly while rotating your body (like you’re doing a fulcrum). Continue pushing and rotating for about two minutes, until the clog falls out. If this doesn’t work, try pouring in some baking soda followed by hot water.

Ways to Unclogging a Toilet

Put one hand around the base of the toilet and use your other hand to push up from underneath. Sometimes, all you need is some elbow grease.

If that doesn’t work, try using a auger or snake. Both of these tools have narrow tips that help clear clogs in toilets.

If none of these solutions work, you may need to call a professional.

Unclogging a Toilet with Vinegar

Pour about two cups of white vinegar into the toilet and work it into the drain with a bucket or your hand.

Let it sit for several minutes, then plunge the plunger down into the vinegar and try to push everything clogged up out of the drain.

If this doesn’t work, try using hot water instead of vinegar.

Unclogging a Toilet with Baking Soda

If you have a plunger and your toilet is clogged, there is a chance that using the plunger will cause more damage to the toilet than unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog a toilet with baking soda:

1. Turn off the main water valve to the house or building. This will prevent water from flowing into the bathroom while you try to unclog the toilet.

2. Open the lid of the toilet and get rid of any pieces of paper or other material that may be blocking the pipes below.

3. Pour a few cups of baking soda down into the bowl, making sure that it covers all of the food particles and waterlogged materials. Be careful not to splash yourself or anyone else in the process!

4. Close the lid of the toilet and wait for about an hour, until everything has been eliminated by baking soda.

5. Turn on the main water valve to the house or building and flush the toilet once to clean it out.

If the toilet still does not unclog, it may be necessary to call a professional.


There are a few steps you can take to try and unclog your toilet without needing a plunger. Sometimes all it takes is some patience and doing things one step at a time. If the problem persists, then you might need to call in a plumber. In the meantime, these tips should help you get started on resolving the issue on your own.
