Do you still need a plumber if you flushed a wash cloth down the toilet and it still flushes fine?
Not so far you don't, but I'd keep an eye on it. You may have
been lucky enough that the washcloth actually made it all the way
to the larger "main" pipe and it's safely floating the the sewer

A cloth has fallen down the toilet what should i do?
If you haven't flushed it yet, get some gloves or some wooden dowels or something like that to pick it and get it out. If you can, put it in the washing machine or else you could just clean it normally. Do just the same thing if money got in the toilet except this is just bigger and softer and needs cleaning.

What are the steps to take if your child just flushed a bottle down the toilet?
Sorry, there isn't a nice answer to this Q. The best I can offer is: If the toilets plugged, call a plumber. If your more adventuristic here's what you can do: First thing is locate the water supply valve between the toilet tank and the wall or floor. Be ready to turn it off quick. Practice turning it off BEFORE the next step and you find out it won't turn. Flush the toilet. If it flushes ok, you can try some toilet paper to see if it goes down ok. If so, the bottle may have gone on down the drain. Next is: Put on gloves and reach into the toilet and feel for the bottle. Extract it if you can. Toilets have what's called a "Gooseneck" right behind the hole you can see. It's is shaped like an "S" so unless you want your neighbors to see the Fire Dept. pull your arm out of your toilet, DON'T STICK YOUR ARM IN AND GET IT STUCK! DON'T REACH ANY FARTHER IN THAN YOUR WRIST TO FEEL FOR THE BOTTLE. Extract it if it's there. Now comes the nasty part. You will need to remove the toilet to access the back side of the Gooseneck and the drain. There is a valve with a hose connected to it and the toilet tank on the side of the toilet. This is the water supply to the toilet. Turn it off. FLush the toilet holding down the lever to get as much water as you can get out of the tank. Remove the tank top. Use a rag and bucket to sop up the remaining water from inside the toilet tank and bowl. On the base on each side there is a 7/16 nut. Remove these. Get some newspaper or disposable drop cloth and spread it near the toilet. Now you have to lift the toilet off the holdown bolts and drain and set it aside. CAUTION: IT WILL BE HEAVY AND AWKWARD!! Now you'll see why you want to get as much water out as possible. When the toilet is removed you will be able to see directly down the drain and by tilting the toilet on it's side you will be able to see the other side of the Gooseneck. You may be able to remove the bottle now. If there is no standing water in the drain and you can't find the bottle it probably went on down the drain. If there is standing water in the pipe now is a good time to call that plumber. It gets more complicated and nasty from here.The good news is you have saved on labor cost by removing the toilet. You can also save on cost by re-installing the toilet. Be sure and clean the base of the toilet and drain face and use a new wax gasket and bolts. Good Luck.

Toilet Installation: Basics Steps For Bathroom DIY Job?
Installing a new toilet in a bathroom is a basic do-it-yourself job that can be done by a single person, although an extra hand may be helpful. First, the rough in measurement must be taken, which is a distance between the back wall and the drain connected to the toilet bowl. Next, the water supply in the bathroom must be turned off and the water from the tank needs to be flushed. After that, it is a matter of unscrewing a couple of bolts, removing the wax ring from the drain, cleaning the flange, and installing the new toilet bowl and tank. It is important to seal the drain with a cloth or bag while working, because harmful sewage gases can leak inside the bathroom.
Asked in Plumbing
What will happen if you flush cloth down the toilet?
you probably will plug it up, it will over flow (one of the scariest sites man's ever had to behold). You will locate the water turn off knob on pipe next to potty, and turn off water. With any luck you'll just have a cloth/clean water issue to plunge. If you have a combination of toilet friendly materials, not good. After plunging a bit, you won't make that mistake again.
Asked in Diapers
Why is a diaper called a nappy?
In the UK we would look at it the other way round and ask 'Why is a nappy called a diaper in some parts of the world?'. Nappy is short for napkin. daiper is the type of weave used in the cloth. In the many centuries before toilet paper a daipered cloth was used for that function (in the higher classes). (The type of cloth that some in the UK [i believe] call muslin)

Asked in Menstruation, Tampons
What can you do if you don't have any pad or tampons?
If you don't have any tampons or pads then you could go to the store or ask another woman for supplies. If that isn't an option then you can use toilet paper, just fold into your underwear and then wrap another layer around the crotch of your underwear and the folded toilet paper to help hold it in place. You can also use folded cloth as a makeshift pad in your underwear, or even make your own cloth pads if you have a sewing machine (e.g. if you're at home when you have no supplies).
