Drain Cleaning Alternatives Without a Plunger Handy

Close up dirty sink or basin with foodwaste after wash dishware

When minor drain clog or blockage issues take place in any of your home drains, particularly the toilet, the first item most people tend to reach for is the plunger. There are a few different types of plungers out there, each of which will assist you with creating a pressure and air vacuum to clear out certain clogs.

When you contact the pros with At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air, we’re happy to assist you with numerous drain cleaning needs and services, including basic plunger expertise. What about rare cases where you don’t have a plunger available? Whether this is due to it breaking or being lost, you being in an unfamiliar location or some other cause, it pays to know how to unclog a toilet even if there’s no plunger handy. Here are a few methods that might assist you here.

Basic Dish Soap

Dish soap is designed for a simple purpose: Helping break down grease and other waste before cleaning and bringing a fresh odor to various dishes and other items. And while it’s very good at this, these same breakdown themes may apply in other areas – such as breaking down similar blockages in toilet drains.

All you have to do is squeeze at least a full cup of dish soap into your toilet bowl, perhaps more if the clog is significant. Leave it to sit for 30 to 45 minutes, but before you go, check the current water level in the bowl. When you return, check this level again – is it lower than before? This is a sign that the dish soap is doing its job and breaking down the clog slowly but surely.

Hot (But Not Boiling) Water

Another basic format you can use, one that doesn’t even require wasting dish soap, is very hot water. It’s important you don’t allow this water to reach boiling point – at this temperature, it may crack the porcelain or cause other damage in your toilet bowl.

Rather, fill a bucket with hot water that has not yet reached boiling point. Then simply pour it down the drain, allowing it to melt away blockages and solve your issue.

Epsom Salt Reaction

If you have Epsom salt in your home and need a slightly quicker unclogging method for a toilet, you can use this product to create a reaction. Epsom salt will create a fizzing sensation, one that also helps break down clogs within the toilet. In most cases, you only need to allow about 15 minutes for the salt to do its work.

Toilet Brush

Finally, for true emergencies or situations outside your home where no other options are available, using the actual toilet brush to clear a clog can still work. Simply push the brush into the drain and exert a reasonable amount of pressure as you attempt to clear the clog. If possible, wear gloves or other protective garments for sanitation.

For more on clearing a toilet clog even if you don’t have a plunger, or to learn about any of our drain cleaning, plumbing or HVAC services, speak to the staff with At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air today.
