So read on to learn everything you need to know about plunging a toilet!

Step 1: Grab Your Rubber Gloves and Plunger

One of the most important things to remember when plunging a toilet is to wear rubber gloves. This will protect your hands from any bacteria that may be present in the toilet bowl water. Once you have your gloves on, position the plunger over the drain hole and make sure there is enough water in the bowl to cover the plunger cup.

Step 2: Start Plunging

Then, it's time to start plunging! Push and pull the plunger up and down, making sure to get a good seal each time. You may need to do this for a minute or two before the clog starts to loosen. Once it does, continue plunging until the water starts draining freely.
