I came, I saw , I unplugged the toilet ..... clogged toilet

99Toilet issues

The upstairs guest toilet got plugged by JY poop.  
I had configured the toilet for vigorous action including extra water
so the toilet overflowed. ,  The plunger did not fit toilet well and
I could not clear the poop. Finally I used an old towel as a gasket…. I cut a
two inch ( 6 cm )  hole in the middle of the towel and laid it in the middle of the bowl.
I put the plunger through the hole. I used another towel to “roof” the
plunger to reduce splashing.

When using a snake … protect the toilet from scratches …….   use a bent plastic pipe

It is also a good idea to use dish cleaning soap …. Followed by hot ( not boiling ) water.  
Water that is too hot will crack toilet.
