How to Buy a Quality, Decorative Toilet Plunger Cheap

by Regi_B

I'll give you the straight poop on how to save money and buy a plunger you can be proud to put on display -- well, almost.

Some people say I am full of crap. Heck! Just ask my first wife. She'll tell ya!

All those people may be right, but I do know the straight poop on decorative toilet bowl plungers. I have one in my home -- and I am glad of it! We should not own plungers we have to hide under the bathroom sink due to their lack of attractiveness -- no!

Let us buy plungers that bring us pride -- or at least, that do not bring us shame. Let us buy decorative plungers of good quality. And let us find them for cheap!

I am but a simple man with a simple dream.

Is This Your Idea of a Decorative Bathroom Plunger?

(If so, this page is not for you.)

A Decorative Plunger Is:

  • a.k.a. a "covered plunger",

  • able to finish off toilet clogs as well as a "regular" plunger,

  • something that adds to the decor of your bathroom,

  • something that does not detract from the decor of your bathroom,

  • a mighty fine invention,

  • tough on clogs, easy on the eyes.

The Best Decorative Plunger for the Money

For my money, the best decorative toilet bowl plunger is the model pictured below from OXO. I have actually owned this plunger for several years, and it does the job with aplomb every time -- and believe me, it gets plenty of work around my house! I definitely feel my purchase of the OXO plunger with canister was money well spent -- and not flushed down the drain.

How to Save Money When Buying Your New Decorative Toilet Plunger

Most likely, someone reading this does so knowing that he or she does not want a basic, run-of-the-mill, hide-it-under-the-sink kind of bathroom plunger. It is not as though the plunger in your bathroom ought to be on display. In fact, the reason to have a decorative toilet plunger is for cases when guests are using your facilities and they need to unplug a clog that they just -- um -- made. This person should not have to come out of your bathroom during -- say -- a dinner party, asking (no matter how whispered) for the location of your plunger.

So, we want decorative bathroom plungers, but we do not want to pay too much for them. I have some tips that can help.

One thing you can do is just go to, type in "decorative toilet plunger" or "covered toilet plunger" and seek out the plunger you like, and that is in your price range. At this writing, there is a decorative plunger on Amazon for about $10. For many, that is a nice price point for a piece of bathroom decor.

Another thing you can do to save money on a decorative toilet plunger is to head out to your local Goodwill thrift store. Here, you may find either a gently used, or a brand new decorative toilet plunger. Most people know that Goodwill accepts people's donations of household items in good condition. They also sell some household items new, at a discount. Call ahead to your local Goodwill and ask if they have new, decorative toilet plungers on hand.

Similarly, you might find a good, gently used decorative plunger at a yard sale. The up side is if you find one, it will be at great savings, surely. The down side is you are almost certain never to find a brand new plunger in a yard sale setting.

Lastly, be sure to look at auctions for decorative plungers on eBay. On the right day, you could snag a nice looking plunger for a deep discount.

I hope this has been a good read for you, and that this article's content helps you clear the pipes in your home in a cheap, yet graceful way.
