How to Dissolve Waste in a Clogged Toilet

Save

Toilet clogs are never an enjoyable issue to deal with, particularly if you do not have a plunger or auger readily available. Waste that has built up in the toilet drain will render the toilet inoperable, and with no option to push the waste through the piping system, dissolving it may be your best option. Dissolving and clearing the waste in a clogged drain can be done using common household items, and can be done without the use of chemicals.

Things You'll Need

  • Large pot
  • Water
  • Wait until the toilet bowl has drained of water. Not flushing the toilet over a period of time will allow this to occur naturally.

  • Simmer a large pot of water, without bringing it to a boil, using your stove top.

  • Dump the hot water into the toilet bowl and allow it to sit.

  • Repeat until the clog has been dissolved and pushed through the drain.

Tips & Warnings

  • Acid-based chemical drain cleaners can damage your drain and pipes.
