Toilet plungers are not something we tend to discuss. But, for sure, we want them to work and we sure hope there’s one accessible if we—horror!—happen to need one in someone else’s bathroom. (By the way, this post has some great tips for how to unclog a toilet, should you find yourself without a plunger).

Whether it’s through consideration for your guests or to equip your own home with the top tools for the job, we found the one toilet plunger to replace all others.

The simplehuman toilet plunger is the last type of toilet plunger you’ll buy—and you may end up buying one for each bathroom in the house. Here’s why I love it:

It’s the right kind of plunger for the job

Too often, you find simple plungers with no flange (the part where the rubber narrows) next to the toilet or under the bathroom sink. But these kinds of plungers are actually for unclogging sinks and won’t work well in a toilet. The simplehuman one is exactly the right fit for this dirty job.

It has a comfortable handle

This plunger’s handle is comfortable (no rough wood here) and allows you to get a good grip in order to efficiently tackle the job at hand.

It comes with a caddy

This is handy for two reasons. First, the plunger won’t drip on the floor after you use it, and you won’t need to keep it in a plastic bag in order to keep dirty toilet water from pooling on the floor. Second, should you need to carry the plunger across the house to another bathroom, the plunger will be covered, since the caddy stays attached to the handle.

It works well and is built to last

This plunger is designed to work not only in older toilets, but also in newer models with different hole shapes. I can also vouch that this plunger is well-made and will stand up to years of use without getting stuck or torn.
