    a small plastic bottle fell into my toilet and I have tried a snake and even a straightened wire hanger to get it out, but couldn't. I was wondering if anyone knows of any type of liquid plummers that would melt the plastic because I do not want to have to take the toilet off the floor and calling a plumber is my last resort. Thanks for any help :)

    holy smokes! dont put anything down the toilet thinking its gonna melt the plastic and save you a headache....it aint gonna happen! If you cant snake it out with a closet auger or fish it out with a coat hanger, you're going to need to pull the toilet and get it out of the trap that way. Why is calling a plumber the last resort? If you broke your leg, calling a doctor wouldnt be......just a thought.

    Pretend you broke your leg and didn't have insurance. Then use that money for the plumber.
