    5. This might not look like a typical toilet plunger but its design makes it super effective – it can reach far around the bend, with eight times more force than a cup plunger.

    Amazon / Via amazon.co.uk

    You don't need to form a seal to use this plunger because it pushes water at the blockage as well as air, meaning this works for different types of toilets such as those with a low flow or squared bottom. You just push the nozzle as far down the basin as you can, and then use the handle as a pump. Some customers say they had tried everything to fix a toilet blockage but this bad boy was the thing to get the job done!

    Price: £10.99

This little piece of vinyl might look unassuming, but judging from the many positive reviews it's very effective!
