Customer Question

I have 2 pork rib bones stuck in my toliet.
It's flushing but very slow. What can I use to dissolve them.?

You could try a strong acidic drain opener but you'll probably ruin the toilet finish in the process. Try pulling the toilet off the floor and see if you can get to them from the outlet. I'd also try a closet auger (a snake made specifically for toilets) to dislodge them first.
