5. They're probably stuck in the toilet itself, the openings are quite small.
I'd try plunging first to attempt to move them along. Then I'd try a plumber's snake(not sure what the "real" name is for that device,it's what we call it around here) if you have one handy. Otherwise, I'd say call a plumber especially if you've never removed a toilet and re-installed one.

Your pipes to the sewer should be big enough to handle the applicators. I'd only see a problem if there were tree roots or something in the lines.
