Clogged toilets can be a real nuisance!  Nevertheless you should pay attention to how much toilet paper you try and flush down the drain.  If you are constantly plying it with toilet paper you’re bound to suffer from a blocked toilet. You should also never throw anything down the toilet that shouldn’t be flushed down the drain. Not only is it back for the environment but you will also be more likely to have plumbing problems. However if you need to unclog a toilet and don’t know how to do it then we have the perfect solution for you.  This unusual technique is very effective and is definitely worth trying!
