Don't have a plunger handy? Check out these 5+ hacks instead


Let's face it, toilets can be a bit annoying. They get dirty quickly and clog when you least expect it. But here are some simple hacks to upgrade your toilet experience:

Unclogging Without a Plunger:

No plunger around? No worries! Just take some plastic wrap from the kitchen and cover your toilet bowl with it. Once you flush and notice a small air bubble forming, press down on it. This process can help push the clog out and clear your pipes.

The Plunger Method:

Sometimes, the classic plunger needs a little boost. Pouring half a cup of dish soap into your toilet and letting it sit for about 15 minutes can do the trick. After that, pour in a gallon of hot water and start plunging. This combo usually clears up the clog swiftly.

Banish Toilet Stains with Vinegar:

To tackle stubborn bowl stains, first, drain as much water as you can from the toilet. Then, apply vinegar-soaked paper towels onto the stains for a couple of hours. Once you discard the paper towels and flush, those pesky stains typically vanish.

A New Way to Clean - WD-40:

For your regular toilet clean-up, switch out your usual cleaner for some WD-40. It’s excellent at breaking down gunk and lime deposits inside the bowl. A quick spray and scrub can leave your toilet sparkling.

Thorough Cleaning around the Seat:

The spot between your toilet tank and seat is easy to miss. Unscrewing and removing the seat lets you get into those nooks and crannies. Wrap a disinfectant wipe around a screwdriver and glide it through. Once done, reattach the seat.

DIY Camping Toilet:

If you're an outdoor enthusiast, ditch the traditional method of 'finding a spot' in the wilderness. Consider making your very own portable toilet for those camping trips. Handy and more hygienic!

With these hacks, you can ensure a cleaner and more efficient toilet experience, no matter where you are.
