fill a bucket with water and pour it down the loo whilst flushing.
at 'a few days'!!

Try loads of bleach, leave it for half an hour and then try again.

If that doesn't work, and the bucket of water doesn't work, go and get a stick from the garden and break it up with that.

Then dispose of the stick very carefully!

kiltycoldbum · 01/07/2008 09:46

yes a bucket of water while flushing normally does the trick then bleach then fragrance the room, omg to a few days lol

chloemegjess · 01/07/2008 10:09

Lol, I know its gross that its been there for a few days, I have been putting bleach down at night and leaving it overnight but no luck. I have been hoping it would just go eventually but it wont!!! I have just broken it up with a stick (gross) and poored bleach down, but thats the rest of my bleach gone!! So hope there is nothing when I next need to flush! I have loo cleaner though, but never works as good as .
bleach.

"broken it up with a stick" yak yak

Fill bowl/ bucket with water add whilst toilet is flushing.

Bramshott · 01/07/2008 10:26

Boiling water, poured from a great height.

mellyonion · 01/07/2008 10:27

has it gone yet????

this has really made me laugh!!!!

chloemegjess · 01/07/2008 10:33

Not sure as I have put all the beach down there and will leave it until I next need to go, as I have no more bleach left!

BTW I had also tried a kettly of boiliing water, no luck!

Do you all think I am gross now?

Is it wedged or floating? If it's wedged, get some Marigold's on and poke it through with your hand.

Utterly grim, but marginally less awful than a visitor staring in horror at the poo.

mellyonion · 01/07/2008 10:36

good god...it must be some MASSSSSIVE poo!!!!! any inkling as to who it belongs to?

chloemegjess · 01/07/2008 10:41

I had some people over in the evening, and then noticed it was there in the morning, and neither me or DH had used the loo, or he wont admit to it anyway!! It was stuck on the bottom

And no way am I poking it with my figers!!! Gloves or no gloves!

me n flame both wondering how it could stay around for e few days......you are obviously far to hospitable
louii · 01/07/2008 11:04

Just get a toilet brush and move it about a bit, then put lots of loo roll down and flush away.

2sugars · 01/07/2008 11:07

Loads of loo roll then flush?

bran · 01/07/2008 11:07

LOL, this makes me think of an episode of Coupleing where one character describes another character's stalkerish ex-girlfriend as "an unflushable".

BettySpaghetti · 01/07/2008 11:10

What you have down your toilet is known in the trade as a "plumbers bonus"

MaryAnnSingleton · 01/07/2008 11:25

my cousin once did an enormous poo in someone's loo and went to flush it and found the water had been turned off - yak

Hassled · 01/07/2008 11:31

I can't quite believe I'm revealing this but I have in the past (in similar circumstances)sawed a poo in half with one of the old gammy knives that lurk at the back of the cutlery drawer. That did the job (as it were). I promise I then binned the knife .

FairyMum · 01/07/2008 11:34

This is what coathangers are for. You need to mash it up if too big to flush.

Gumbo · 01/07/2008 11:36

A few days?

Are you sure this should be posted under 'Good' Housekeeping?

ChicaLovesBranstonPickle · 01/07/2008 11:39

MaryAnnSingleton, my dad once did a very similar thing.

We had arrived at a rented holiday home in France late at night, and just piled into bed.

In the morning, my dad went to the bathroom downstairs for his 'morning constitutional'. When he came to flush, nothing happened. He jiggled the lever a bit, lifted up the lid, no water.

Then he noticed that the loo wasn't even plumbed in at the back!

In the end he carried the whole loo outside, to the end of the garden and tried tipping it out. No luck, cos it just got stuck on the rim.

Eventually he had to extract his poo with the aid of sticks and leaves!

This story has entered the family annals as one of the funniest things ever to have happened on holiday.

To OP, get an old knife or spoon, put the marigolds on, hold your nose and don't look, just stab and saw. Good luck

chloemegjess · 01/07/2008 11:44

gumbo - the rest of the house is spotless. It has only been there for that long as nothing seemed to shift it. Its not like I left in there on purpose. I had tried boiling water, used a whole bottle of bleach, loo cleaner, sticks!!!! lol. And where else should I have posted??

It has now gone, hopefully for good!
