  • Boiling Water Unclogs Stubborn Pipes
  • To unclog a toilet with the least number of ingredients, fill a medium saucepan with water and bring it to a boil. Pour the boiling water into the toilet bowl in a gentle stream to remove the clog.

  • Save on Water Usage with a Plastic Water Bottle 
  • If your toilet is an older model without water-saving capabilities, there is a straightforward option to save money and minimise water waste. Pour an empty one-litre plastic bottle with one or two inches of sand to keep it heavy and prevent the bottle from floating. Fill up the rest with water.
    Screw the cover back and place the bottle into your toilet tank, safely away from the flushing system. With this unwanted guest in the tank, there is less space for water used for flushing and so you will be using less water with every flush! 

  • Reduce Condensation with Bubble Wrap 
  • The toilet tank's ability to perspire can be stopped with a bubble wrap cover. Turn off the water valve on the toilet and then remove the tank cover. Drain the tank water by flushing. Once the water has been emptied, line the inside of the tank with a layer of bubble wrap. This will keep the outside of the tank from getting cold and causing condensation when it comes in contact with warm, moist air.
