My toilet is stuffed up, presumable because someone tried to flush too many tissues at once. Every time I try to flush the water doesnt go down. I took out any tissues that I could see in the toilet bowl but that didnt help. Any advice cuz I need help QUICK so that I can be able to use the bathroom. TIA.

Put you're hand inside a shopping bag and stick it in the toilet..
Pull out the clump of tissues that is blocking the hole on bottom where water usually goes down.

You can also try using a hanger or a plunger.

OP here, I tried a plunger and a hanger and neither seem to work. I also stuck my hand in the toilet bowl to pull out any tissues that were there but the water is still not going down.

Sometimes, if I wait an hour or so and then try the plunger again it works better. If that doesn't work after a couple of tries I pour drain cleaner, wait about 20 minutes (or whatever it says on the bottle), and try the plunger again. So far this has always worked for me, but I also have more than one bathroom so I don't have to worry if it takes a few hours to clear up.

Make sure to turn off the water source before you do any experimenting

The snake thing is called a closet auger and it is one of the most useful items to have around the house for those households prone to clogging. Throw away the plunger and get a closet auger.
