I know what you’re thinking? Toilet plunger?! Go ahead, chuckle if you must but the reality is clogged toilet bowls happen. You know the scenario: The flush doesn’t sound right and you get that sinking feeling. You turn and see the water is just not going down or the water is all gone and not refilling. Worse, there is a clump of toilet paper and the water slowly rises to the brim. This is when you hit the point of no return and all the bells and whistles go off your head. Nooooooooo!
It is stressful (and embarrassing) to deal with a clogged toilet. Somehow it seems to happen exactly when you are expecting company.
I find that the toilet plungers available in the Philippines are not as effective compared to the ones sold in the States. It’s the way the rubber is shaped and the quality of it. The ones I see in the grocery are mostly sink plungers and made from flimsy material. What’s the point? You need a proper toilet plunger with a sturdy rubber that tappers in the bottom so that it can fit the toilet bowl hole. It’s also hard to find a nice looking plungers.
Here are some cool (and effective) plungers available on Amazon:
We just finished renovating our powder room in the new Maison Epperson. Tom and I put a lot of thought in designing the space to make the rest room experience comfortable for family and guests.
We believe that one way to create pleasantries in the powder room is to provide a plunger.
I bought the InterDesign Brushed Stainless Steel Plunger on Amazon last week and it arrived at my doorstep in less than 5 days. Amazing! What I love about this particular style is that the stainless dome cover lifts and locks in place. The plastic base also keeps the plunger head off the floor (it’s more hygienic that way).
Have a pleasant day!
