  • If the plunger does not work after repeated attemps. You might have to use a snake.

  • do not pour anything down the toilet. It is for sink drains not toilets. My mom had to pay 185 plus tax for roto rooter. All becasue she did not have a snake. Home depot sells them for 40 dollars.

  • The thing is called 'a plumbers friend'. It isn't fun, but it works.

  • Plunger. Beyond that, if you're totally plumbing impaired (know nothing about it) call a plumber, it's not worth messing with yourself and creating a bigger problem.

  • If the plunger doesn't work, then you'll need a "closet' auger.
