NO you can not flush glasses down a toilet. YOU CAN get an closet auger and remove the obstruction before if blocks up your entire soil line and causes a large amount of damage DO NOT try to plunger it

Try using 20 sheets of toilet paper and flush the toilet if if backs up you got trouble. Normally these types of item even Q tips wont pass the toilets trap.

If some how they did then there is always the possibility they would get hung in the main sewer line or trap and use lots of problems

Today I dropped half the roller that the toilet paper hangs on. You know - you got the little posts that screw into the wall, and the roller that's made up of 2 halves with a spring in between. I guess all these things have names but heck if I know what they are. Anyway, I was holding one half as the toilet was flushing, and the other dropped down the toilet. I heard a "clink" which is I assume the roller half hitting the ceramic at the trap and - hopefully - lodging there.

So ... my question is whether something this size would fit through the trap. If so, then I guess my only option will be to take the toilet out because I don't want it to go through. If not, I am thinking it may be a lot easier to use the closet auger and try and pull it back. I guess it all hinges on whether I may accidentally push the roll through the trap or not.

Please ... help! Thanks.

your trap could be as big as 2.25 inches. That roller could be gone for good. or clog up the piping somewhere else downstream.

There is 90% chance it can be retrieved by an closet auger as the trap is not designed to allow straight objects to make the turn
