This is my #1 YouTube! video! I researched how to do this and decided to give it a try myself. It actually works! Be patient though, can take 15-30 mins to get everything back to normal. Remember, the key is piping hot water 💧 and dish soap. Boiling water is not a good idea though. Not responsible for any damage to you or your property with what is presented in this video.

    After a few minutes of trying to plunge my toilet to unclog it, it started to over flow in the tub. Based on internet searching, I'd need to call a plumber ASAP! I literally tried everything and nothing worked. I was completely frustrated and thinking my line is clogged and I don't have the money to call a plumber that may just come and cause more problems…….and then I found this video! Thank you Lord!👏🏼🙏🏼💃😂 It worked! It worked! I'm about to take that money I would have called a plumber for and go buy myself something nice! I'd like to cashapp you something too……please send cashapp name! (Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!)
