Besides, can you use Drano crystals in bathtub?

You can use Drano® Clog Removers to unclog a kitchen sink, bathroom sink, shower or clogged bathtub, but DO NOT use them in toilets. For preventive drain cleaning, you can use Drano® Max Build-Up Remover in drains, toilets and even septic systems.

Why can't you use Drano in a toilet?

Drano uses caustic or oxidizing chemicals (like lye) to dissolve whatever is clogging a drain. The chemical reaction between the clog and Drano creates heat. Now, Drano does not clear a clog instantly. It's going to sit in the toilet (or farther down the pipes, depending where the clog is) until the clog dissolves.
