Plumber Anyone?
Has anyone ever had there child accidentally flush there underwear down the toilet bowl?

Just wondering.

The four year old who resides in our home had a major melt down this afternoon when she realized her Cinderella underpants accidentally got flushed down the toilet with her pee.

Don't ask me how. I have no idea.

What I do know is that said four year old continued to cry for those panties for many MANY hours after the incident. No amount of plunging could bring them back to us.

This is my question for you all. The toilet is flushing fine, however, I am worried that the panties are stuck down there somewhere. Do I need to call a plumber? Can I put something down the drain to eat the underpants if they got stuck? What do you all think?

Hubby's out of town and I am to tired to think clearly. I need the help of my bloggy friends.

I really want to get Cinderella out of my pipes so I can send her back to her nice big castle and the cute prince she is married to.

Don't worry about it---those little 4 year old panties probably went straight through. It took 15 baby wipes to stop our toilets up. Baby wipes....NOT the flushable kind. 15.

My nephew lost his Hans Solo acton figure down the toilet. Oh the weeping. He was holding it in his flushing hand.

I'd imagine they went through fine, but if you're worried you can get someone to snake through the line for less than $100....

Seems like a lot, but as someone who has gone through plumbing backups, it is worth every nickel!

Yes!!! Mind did! My toilet still does NOT work 2 weeks later! So, here is what happened. My sons ages 4,6,7 were having a (excuse my language), farting contest. I have no part of it, trust me. Well, one of them "lost" the contest and had to go change his underwear. Well, he went to go put in toilet, forgot about it and flushed it. Well, no it did not go through just fine and we have to call plumber! Ha ha..

Oh, I meant to suggest just buying the snake yourself. For as much as you spend for a plumber, you might as well get one of your own because it could happen again. They are very easy to use. :P

Yes! This has happened here several times over the years. For us, they were small enough that they flushed on through without a problem.

Ha,ha!! Believe it or not, we've never had panties flushed down the toilet, but have had TWO watches. Yes, my child has expensive taste when it comes to throwing things out. Sigh.
I hope everything came out alright.

I wonder if that is what is clogging my toilet? LOL We have no idea what Sam flushed down ours, but it hasn't been working for 3 weeks now. My uncle is coming to fix it for us this weekend, lol.

We've had some lovely things flushed down the toilet over the years. Some were bad news, some caused no problems.
