peter v asks:
A common bath soap has accidentally droped into the toilet bowl and goes its way down to the pipe elbow below that clogged the bowl for several days now. With previous observations, bath soap don’t disolves easily in a presence of an ordinary liquid such as tap water. Please help me find means to desolve it using any active substances/chemical solutions available in the market… thank you very much

Try a big pot of boiling water. Throw some baking soda in it. Make sure the pot isn’t too full of water so the baking soda doesn’t make it overflow. Keep adding more boiling water with baking soda, without flushing, until the water readily flows down without backing up beyond the normal water level. You should then be able to flush.
