How Can I Solve a Serious Toilet Clog (Bar of Soap)?

Q: Help! My three-year-old son flushed a bar of soap down the toilet. I’ve tried using a plunger plus a lot of Drano, and it still won’t flush. Any advice?

 

A: Being soap, it will probably melt, especially if you continue to pour buckets of hot water over it. Once it loses enough mass and density, you could probably force it through with a plumbing snake. It might take a couple of days of the hot-water treatment to melt the soap. If you’re in dire need of that toilet, you can always pull the whole unit up from the floor and remove the bar manually. But if you can be patient, the hot water approach will probably save you the effort of dismantling the toilet.
