How to Unclog a Toilet Without a Plunger With Poop?
If you don’t like using a plunger then the below-mentioned steps will help you in unclogging your toilet with poop.
With the help of a Toilet Brush
For light clogs that happen mostly after you flush, a brush could be a viable option for sure.
It goes without saying that most bathrooms consist of only the brush as an item next to the bowl.
Generally, a brush is used to clean the inner surface of a bowl.
However, if you don’t have any other tool in the vicinity, you don’t have an option but use the brush to push the solid waste down the drain.
Correct me, if I’m wrong.
All you need to do is to cover your hand, take a brush, and gently, press the waste into the drain.
Refrain from exerting too much pressure as it may splash the bowl water all over your bathroom.
You can try giving three quick strokes and then pause for a while to see whether the method is working or not.
Afterward, you need to flush your toilet so that the water pressure can pull the waste down the drain with ease.
Nonetheless, if you don’t find the outcome satisfactory then you can move to the next method.
Using your Hands
Trust me, cleaning the bowl using your hand is one of the most efficient methods that will not consume much of your time as well.
If the water supply is limited and you want to fix the issue at the earliest then definitely, this method will do the trick for you.
Also, this method could be of great help if your bowl contents include foreign non-flushable objects like toys.
However, in order to expedite this method, you would be needing a pair of waterproof gloves, a garbage bag, and of course, something to cover your mouth, nose, and most importantly, eyes.
First and foremost, you need to cover your hand and face, and then using your hand scoop the waste and put it in the garage bag.
Make sure, you check deeper in the drains for any object that may be causing the blockage.
Lastly, flush your toilet to check if it is free from clogs.
If your toilet flushes effortlessly, your work is done.
On the other hand, if the end result isn’t up to the mark then you can try another method like using an auger or toilet snake.
Using an Auger/Hanger/Snake
You can use an Auger or a Hanger or even a Snake for getting rid of solid waste.
A hanger gets into the drain pipe and pushes or pulls whatever is blocking the waste.
With the help of a hanger, you can also easily break hard waste into smaller ones.
While using a hanger, you should be careful and must use protective gear for your face and hand.
Make sure, you keep the hooked side of your hanger hooked so that you can easily press your hanger against solid waste or any other blockage material.
Does it make sense?
Using Hot Water and Dish Soap
Hot water can help you in dislodging waste as it softens poop as well as other biodegradable waste.
Of course, this method will take some time, so you need to be patient in order to reap maximum benefits from it.
Also, you need to repeat the process a couple of times in order to optimize the benefits.
- Boil about 5 gallons of water and put it in a bucket.
- Pour enough boiling water to overpower the cold water in your toilet bowl. Wait for at least 10 minutes and then check if the clog has started to dislodge, and if that is the case, then you must flush your toilet.
- You might be wondering what if the poop hasn’t yet dissolved. In such a scenario, you need to add soap followed by hot water and then wait for at least ten minutes before you can flush again.
Trust me, this is a very simple and less time-consuming method.
However, if you’re expediting the aforementioned steps for the first time, then please be careful as negligence may hurt you.
Shampoo can also be a viable option and will definitely do the trick for you.
Since any shampoo contains a good amount of sulfate so cleaning your toilet shouldn’t be a problem.
All you need to do is to follow the below-mentioned steps.
- Boil at least 5 gallons of water and pour it into a bucket.
- The water should be poured in such a way into the toilet that it can add pressure and heat.
- Add shampoo to your toilet in an adequate amount and leave it for at least 10 minutes.
- If needed, add more hot water to your toilet and leave it for 15 minutes.
- If you notice the clog has moved then pour the remaining hot water and flush to clean out the rest of the residual.
Plastic Foil + Coca-Cola or Baking Soda
I hope most of our readers would be aware of the fact that Coca-Cola is a reactive agent and cleaner on its own.
Take a 2 liter of Coca-Cola and pour it into a vessel.
Then, add plastic foil as soon as possible so that the gas doesn’t escape from the vessel.
Drop the solution into your toilet that consists of solid waste.
Allow it to settle down.
After an hour, flush your toilet, and if needed use the plastic foil wrapped on top of your toilet to push the clog down.
The additional pressure will do the trick for you as it will make the passage for the poop.
Flush your toilet again.
Plastic Foil & Baking Soda
If Coca-Cola isn’t accessible then you can use baking soda as its substitute.
However, for the best result, we recommend using baking soda along with plastic foil or Coca-Cola whatever works well for you.
- First and foremost, you need to pour a bucket of hot water into your toilet and follow up with soda right away.
- If your toilet is reactive then you need to wrap up your toilet with three cling films wrap in order to optimize the profit.
- Moreover, live it covered for at least an hour and then flush it. The additional pressure will push your foil upwards.
- If needed, push it back down with your hands over the foil. The pressure of plastic wrap and the baking soda mixture will easily soften your poop and will push it in a downward direction.
- Lastly, you need to flush your toilet and remove the plastic film.
Baking Soda and Vinegar
Using baking soda and vinegar is very similar to Coca-Cola as it has a chemical reaction.
First and foremost, you need to add three to five tablespoons of baking soda into the bowl, followed by vinegar.
If the solution will start to foam and bubble then you’re on the right track.
Allow it to settle for some time and then flush your toilet.
Moreover, you can also take it up a notch by pouring hot boiling water into your toilet.
In layman’s terms, it will intensify the reactions.
You should repeat the process till the time you’ve achieved the desired result.
Household Bleach and Commercial Chemicals
Household bleach and commercial chemicals are enzyme drain cleaners that are used to hasten the degradation process as well as clean out the pipes in case, they have buildup adhering to the walls of the pipe.
We at izzysmarthomeguide.com recommends using this method only if the clog is severe and the aforementioned methods haven’t given you the desired result.
The bleach may damage the plastic pipes or the metal ones by corroding them.
Let’s have a quick look at the below-mentioned steps that will do the trick for you.
- First and foremost, you need to get a drain cleaner from your nearest store. On the other hand, you can also consider homemade chemical cleaners if they work for you.
- Personally, I prefer selecting store-bought cleaners that are specifically meant for cleaning the drain and most importantly, getting rid of build-up and clogs.
- All you need to do is pour enough cleaner into your bowl and allow it to settle down.
- You’ll probably see a fizzy reaction after waiting a couple of minutes.
- Once the clog is gone, flush your toilet.
How to Unclog a Toilet With Poop Using a Plunger?
In order to deal effectively with an unclogged toilet with poop, I would recommend using a flange plunger as it has shown good results for us in the past.
Trust me, a flange plunger is fast, and extremely effective at what it does.
I prefer a flange plunger because I can use it along with a long handle and prevent myself from coming in contact with wastewater or even poop.
Does it make sense?
All you need to do is to take the biggest closet plunger you’ve got in your house and place it on the opening of your P-trap.
By doing so, you would be able to form a vacuum.
Then, you’ve to move the plunger slowly and gradually, along with increasing your speed.
Moving further, you need to take pause to see whether the clog has passed and continue the process in intervals in order to achieve optimum results.
Keep expediting the process till the time clog has disappeared.
Afterward, flush your toilet in order to wash away all the waste that reverted to your bowl during the plunging process.
In order to make sure plunging is doing its work, check whether or not water is moving out of your bowl into the drain a little slower.
If it does then it simply means the clog is dislodging and all you need to do is to keep plunging.
However, if your toilet looks the same then you should opt for other options that we’ve discussed above.
In order to optimize your plunging outcome, you should consider the below-mentioned tips.
- As you plunge, make sure you’re using both your hands so that you can get a better grip on your handles.
- Exert more forcefully away from the toilet so the waste comes out rather than forcing it deeper into the drain.
- It’s advisable to wear protective gloves in order to prevent any last-minute debacle.
- Make sure to have a garbage bag so that you can keep any content that couldn’t be easily flushed into it.

How to Unclog a Toilet with a Wire Coat Hanger?
Below is a list of items that you would be needing in order to unclog your toilet with a wire coat hanger.
- Wire hanger
- Rubber gloves
- Duct tape
- Household bleach
- The first thing that needs to be done is to unwind your hanger from the top. Where the two ends were round together, take one side and open it up, followed by the other. You’re looking to get one long piece of wire.
- Make sure to leave the hook part of your hanger so that it can be inserted first.
- Now, wrap a small piece of the rug in the hooked part of your hanger. By doing so, you would be able to prevent scratches on the porcelain as you’ll insert it.
- Secure the rug with duct tape. Failing to do so can an even bigger clog as the rug will remain in the toilet.
- Once you’re done with the aforementioned steps, the next thing that needs to be done is to insert the wrapped end of your hanger into your toilet pipe and keep pushing it till the time you feel resistance. If I’m not wrong then that’s probably your clog.
- Move and twist the hanger around inside the drain pipe to dislodge the clog.
- Make sure to push it further into the drain till the time you see the water starting to drain out of your toilet bowl.
- Flush your toilet so that the clog is fully resolved.
The use of a wire coat is not very different from the use of a toilet snake because it entails a wire getting into the drain either to push or to extract a clog in the pipes.
This method is highly effective for clogs that are deeper or further along the drain.
On the downside, the use of a wire may damage the porcelain or ceramic material that is used to make the toilet.
In the worst case, it may damage the pipe in the drain.
If your drain is made from weak plastic, too much exertion of force may damage your pipe so you need to be very careful while trying to get wire into the drain.
I’m attaching a self-explanatory video for your perusal.
For optimum results, you can consider using a washing detergent and hot water.
All you need to do is to add the detergent to the bowl and allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes.
Flush your toilet and you’re done.
Repeat the steps if the clog is still present or the end result isn’t satisfactory.
