How to Unclog a Toilet With Coke

Updated February 21, 2017

Coca-Cola was invented by Dr. John Styth Pemberton in 1886 in an attempt to re-create a popular drink made with coca. Dr. Pemberton took his invention down to a local pharmacy where it was mixed with carbonated water and sold for 5 cents a glass. Although the Coca-Cola Company tries to dismiss the claims of Coca-Cola having other uses other than drinking, some of the uses actually work. There are 75 or more odd uses for Coke, including unclogging a toilet.

Pour a 591ml. bottle of Coca-Cola into the toilet.

Soak the toilet bowl in the Coke overnight.

Flush the toilet to dislodge the clog. The acids in the Coke break up the clog overnight.
