Loosen the Seal

Use a utility knife to score the area between the bowl and the floor, and then free the toilet by rocking it from side to side. Lift the toilet away onto some old towels or newspaper. Remove the wax gasket using a putty knife or similar tool. Block the drainpipe with a rag to prevent sewer gas escaping.
