Can you retrieve something flushed down toilet?
Thankfully, most toilet drains are made to only allow water to pass through, so items will usually get caught in the drain or at the bottom of the toilet. To retrieve the flushed item, you can try fishing the item out of the toilet bowl or drain with your hands, a wire clothing hanger, or a drain snake.
What dissolves a clogged toilet?
Start by dumping a cup of baking soda into the toilet. If you have turned off the water supply or the water level is low, pour in the pot of boiling water. Last, slowly pour in about two cups of vinegar. Let the mixture sit for a couple of hours before to see if it dissolves the clog.
How do you get pencil off the toilet?
Unless it was a very short pen, it is probably caught right at the top of the trap. Remove all the water from the bowl, and then use a flashlight and small mirror to look up into the toilet. If it is there, a bent coat hanger will dislodge it and let it fall back to where you can retrieve it.
What happens if you flush a toothbrush?
You can plunge it or use a toilet auger on it and clear the other items, but anything other than liquid will again clog it out. You might get lucky and be able to remove the toothbrush with a closet auger, but most likely, you’ll need to remove the toilet and turn it upside down to clear out the obstruction.
How do you get something out of a sink without taking it apart?
Use a Magnet Try attaching a small magnet to a string or small flexible rod that will fit down your drain. Lower the magnet and slowly pull it back up in order to ensure you don’t drop the item once again. If you’re still without your favorite piece of jewelry, try a stronger magnet and see if that does the trick.
