Probably just toilet paper. I use a coat hanger straightened out.

I assume you are talking about the Macerating toilet in the back? If so do not stick anything in it. It has a plastic macerator that you could damage. I had "someone " put butt wipes in mine. It stopped the pump from turning. I had to remove the toilet( very easy) put a garbage bag over the bottom and take it outside. I then took the pump apart and removed the wipe from the pump. Put it all back together and all is good. It's a messy job and you will need some good latex gloves and a place to take it all apart.
Make sure all who use the back toilet that nothing but waste and TP can go in it.

Sounds a bit messy--not understand the latex gloves--hard to work with gloves on !!

The gloves save time when you are done with the job. I can be difficult to get the poop out from under your fingernails. Gloves sent mandatory but like I said poop under the fingernails.

It's really not that tough a job. I had to call a repair guy to help me carry the toilet out. I had it unhooked and after looking at the pump I decided it was an outside job. I'm not able to lift that much so it cost me a hundred dollars to have him help me carry it out and back in. I did everything else. A cordless drill helps a bunch as there are ten or so screws that hold the pump to gather. I took it apart and the sanitary wipe was jammed between the impeller and the pump housing.

It got most of it but not all. I was able to get the rest out just by shaking hands with all my friends!
