    Sorry you are having problems with a clogged toilet. Hope this is helpful. Pour 1 cup baking soda and 2 cups vinegar into the toilet.

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

    You can buy a good plunger from Home Depot or you can rent one of those lines they use to feed down through the toilet and through the drain pipe to loosen what is plugging the line. I can't remember the name, but you can rent it from rental places or places like Home Depot.
