Clogged toilet – smart solutions
Although the toilet pump appears to be a necessity in the home, there are alternatives that can save you just as readily.
They require simple products or objects that may be found around the house and used without any special knowledge. Consider the following suggestions before calling a plumber to unclog the toilet:

Using hot water is one of the easiest and most efficient remedies, especially if the plug is formed of toilet paper or easily soaked materials. Warm two liters of water in a pot before pouring it into the toilet from a medium height.
To avoid harming the porcelain or potentially burning yourself, make sure the water is not too hot. Allow hot water to flow in the toilet for a few minutes before flushing with cold water. If the residue is not removed, repeat the procedure, but this time add baking soda to the basin before pouring in the water.
Mixture of baking soda and vinegar
Baking soda and vinegar are simple home items that can be mixed to produce an effervescent response that aids in toilet unclogging. Begin by pouring half a cup of baking soda down the toilet, covering the full surface of the water. Pour a cup or two of vinegar down the toilet after that.
Baking soda and vinegar combine chemically to produce froth and effervescence. Depending on the degree of the blockage, leave the mixture on for 30 minutes to overnight. After waiting, rinse with warm water or a forceful spray of water to remove any dissolved impediments.
Salt and hot water
Another simple solution is to use salt and hot water. Begin by pouring roughly half a cup of salt into the toilet, followed by a steady stream of hot water. Allow the mixture to act for 30 minutes before adding cold water.
The compounds in the cola, such as carbonic and phosphoric acid, may help break apart and partially dissolve the obstruction in the drain, perhaps removing rust. As a result, it is required to flush the toilet with two cups of cola and wait 5-10 minutes before flushing with water.
Use a wire hanger.
Unclogging the toilet with a long, flexible wire hanger can be an effective way. Bend the hanger end gently to make a hook that will be used to catch and remove the blockage. Insert the hanger carefully into the toilet bowl, hook end facing you.
Gently move the hanger back and forth to capture and remove the jam. Avoid using too much pressure to avoid damaging the toilet bowl, and if you are successful in removing the clog, carefully remove the hanger from the bowl. Then, rinse with water and ensure that the liquid drains correctly.
It should be noted that while these toilet unclogging methods may work if the toilet bowl is just partially clogged, some more significant problems necessitate the use of expert cleaning solutions.
