You just have to repeat pushing and pulling the plunger until the clog is gone. If this does not work, reach for the snake. You simply have to push it into the bowl until it addresses the clog source. Should this fail to work, ask a handyman to come over and do the fixing for you.
Sometimes, wrong practices cause the clog in the toilet bowl. There are habits which you must avoid to ensure a working toilet bowl. Refrain from using chemicals. Some chemicals may be good arresting the clog but they can damage your bowl system in time and make a bigger problem in the end.
To keep things from dropping into the toilet bowl, cover it all the time. Do not place toiletries, toys or even bar soaps on top of the toilet tank. These objects can quickly cause clogs. Refrain from pouring liquids into the toilet bowl which harden over time. Examples of these are grease, wax and other compounds.
