Unclogging Toilets & College?

March 16, 2012

Let’s admit it, a clogged toilet is one of the most non fun things to deal with. Combine this with living with roommates, and well… when apartment chores come up it can be a real pain and cause disagreements and even fights in some situations. Today’s post highlights a unique tip covered by Lifehacker. In the post they highlight a way to unclog toilets that you may not have thought of before.

“Add a few cups of hot water to the toilet bowl before you start plunging. After you pour the hot water in, let it sit for a few minutes. To put it mildly, the heat helps break the, um, stuff up. This will make unclogging the toilet with the plunger much, much easier. The heat from the hot water can sometimes break up the clog without plunging, so this could be a good tactic to use if you a clog a toilet at a friends house and you don’t want to face the embarrassment of asking for a plunger.

Also, try adding some dishwasher detergent to the mix. The soap can help break the clog up, as well.”

This is great knowledge any senior should learn before graduation!
