I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

How to Unstop a Toilet without a Plunger (or any other tool)

Say you're in a hotel and you've had the triple burrito, bran muffin and double latte? Or maybe the kids just put too much TP in?

Here's a trick. SLOOOOOOWLY depress the handle and allow the bowl to fill with water. You don't want to do a full flush and overflow the bowl.

The pressure from the greater amount of water will many times push the clog down allowing the bowl to flush.

It works in a lot of cases. If it doesn't, the water will eventually drain back down to a normal level.

You may want to remove the lid from the tank so you can see the position of the flapper. Just push the handle a little to allow it to open slightly.
