Any homeowner has been there before. Heck, anyone who lives in a place near a toilet has probably been there before. Ya flush the toilet, and instead of the water swirlin' down, it starts risin’ ominously towards the brim. Panic sets in, then you realize your trusty plunger is nowhere to be found or has met its untimely demise. Then your panic turns into dread because the only thing worse than a clogged toilet is a clogged toilet without a plunger! But ya don’t need to worry, the Green Gobbler is here to save the day by helpin' ya unclog that stubborn toilet. 

It's time to break it down.

The Plight of a Broken Plunger

Now, before we dive in, let's take a minute to commiserate over the unfortunate fate of our beloved plungers. Those rubber warriors have fought countless battles against stubborn clogs, but even they can't last forever. Over time, they’ve been known to crack and lose their seal, or they can just up and vanish without a trace when you need ‘em the most. But whatever the reason you have for losin’ your most trusted toilet accessory, there are alternatives to get the job done.

Solution 1: The Trusty Wire Hanger

When your plunger has abandoned ya, ya get desperate. And the desperate sometimes reach for an old wire hanger. While hangers are meant to keep your clothes safe and clean, ya can also bend 'em into a makeshift tool to get down and dirty with a pesky clog.

First off, ya need to make sure ya get the right hanger. The plastic ones are too flimsy to get the job done, but, as crude as they may be, the metal wire hangers will do the trick.

  1. Fashion Your Weapon: Unravel the hanger until it forms one long piece with a hooked end.
  2. Protective Measures: Wrap a cloth or duct tape around the hooked end to prevent the hanger from scratchin’ the porcelain and pipes.
  3. The Maneuver: Insert your MacGyver'd tool into the toilet drain and use gentle but firm movements to break up and dislodge the clog.
  4. Flush It Down: Once the clog is cleared, give your toilet a victorious flush to ensure everythin’ flows smoothly.

With some ingenuity and a bit of elbow grease, ya should get that water swirlin’ down the drain. While the wire hanger may not be as elegant as a plunger, it'll do the trick in a pinch. But I also get that metal wire hangers may not be popular in every home. Some places prefer the sturdy plastic ones. So, what do ya do when ya have a bad clog, but don't have wire hangers? Ya grab a pot and some water of course.

Solution 2: Boilin’ Water 

Boilin’ water’s not just for tea anymore! Clogs can be tricky, but sometimes all they need is some good old-fashioned boilin’ H2O. A pot of boilin’ water can work like a charm to break up a particularly stubborn clog. But make sure your toilet bowl is half-full to avoid a hot mess on your bathroom floor. 

  1. Get it Boilin': Bring a kettle or pot of water to a rollin' boil. But make sure you let the water cool for a minute after—we're goin’ for hot, not eruptin’ volcano.
  2. Get the Right Pour: Carefully pour that hot water directly into the toilet bowl. Make sure ya aim for the center.
  3. Wait a bit: Allow the hot water to work its magic for a few minutes, softenin' and dislodgin' the clog.
  4. Give it a Flush: Cross your fingers and give 'er a flush to see if the clog is cleared.

With a little luck, that clogged-up mess will flow away smoothly. If it goes well, you'll hear the sweet sound of a successful flush. If not, no sweat – repeat the process, or any of these other methods. 

Obviously, ya gotta be careful when usin’ boilin’ water. Not only can it burn you, but it can also burn and/or crack your toilet's porcelain. Just make sure ya use your best judgment and avoid this method if ya have a plastic toilet or a plumbin' system that's easily compromised in extreme temps.

Solution 3: The Mighty Plumbin’ Snake

If you’ve got a persistent clog, ya might just need to bring out some industrial-grade backup, and few tools work better than the power of a plumbin’ (or drain) snake. They're versatile and robust tools designed to conquer even the toughest clogs. Its only job is to shimmy and shake its way through your pipes and break up anythin’ blockin’ the way. Here's what ya need to know:

  1. Get the Snake: Purchase or rent a plumbin’ snake from your local hardware store or online.
  2. Prepare for Battle: Be sure to put on protective gloves and goggles before gettin' in there, because this might get messy.
  3. Bring the Snake In: Insert one end of the snake into the toilet drain until you feel resistance. And when ya do, that means ya hit the clog.
  4. Do the Twist: Rotate the handle of the plumbin’ snake clockwise while applyin’ a little pressure until you feel it maneuver past the clog.
  5. Retrieve and Repeat: Slowly bring the snake back in while continuin’ to twist, effectively removin' extra debris causin' the blockage. Remember, it's not a race; if you pull too fast, you might just bring the whole dang sewer system with it. 
  6. Give 'er a Victory Flush: Flush your toilet to ensure everythin’ is flowin’ smoothly.

The drain snake is great for every DIY expert. Add it to your arsenal, and you'll be able to take on even the most severe toilet clogs when your plunger fails ya.
