Correspondingly, what can you pour down a toilet to unclog it?

Pour 1 cup baking soda and 2 cups vinegar into the toilet. If you don't have baking soda and vinegar on hand, try adding a few squirts of dish soap to the toilet bowl. The soap may help to loosen the clog. This method isn't likely to work for clogs caused by a hard obstruction, such as a toy.

Over time the soap will seep into the clog lubricating the trap way.
