No plumber needed: This hair-catcher — on sale for $13 — keeps your shower clog-free

·4-min read

If you're a particularly long-haired human, you've struggled for years to keep lost strands from clogging the drain. This is not the biggest problem in the world, but it sure is a consistent one. No matter how vigilant you are about clearing the drain after each shower, inevitably there's a clog forming in the pipe below. We know, we know: You've tried all types of hair catchers, wasted time and money with plumbers and regrettably used Drano in desperate moments. But have you tried the TubShroom? This deceptively simple device will change your life, and right now it's on sale for $13, down from $20.

TubShroom Bathtub Hair Catcher Drain Protector

The TubShroom catches hair (human or pet), which wraps around the tube in one central place for easy cleaning. You don’t actually see any of the hair, soap or residue buildup until you’re ready to clean it.

The genius of the TubShroom lies in its brilliant design. The TubShroom is covered in holes to allow water to pass through, while hair (human or pet) gets wrapped around it, which makes cleaning it off a breeze. The product is made of silicone, making it flexible and easy to fit in a variety of tub drains (though the folks at TubShroom recommend drains 1.5-inch to 1.75-inch inches wide).

An inexpensive solution

Trust us, the TubShroom will be the solution you've been waiting for — plus, it’s ridiculously affordable and it's easy on the eyes. You can grab one in white to match your tub, but why not get creative with one in green, blue, gray or orange? (There's also a clear option). And, once put into service, it'll stay on the job a long time; according to TubShroom, you won’t need to replace it for at least 10 years.

Is the TubShroom a game-changer? Absolutely. Do we think it'll change your life? 100%. Do we recommend it? With every fiber of our collective being — and every hair on our heads. But we're not the only ones who love it.

Catches a ton

By "not the only ones," we mean us and over 79,000 five-star Amazon reviewers

Says one of them: “I have thick waist-length hair," reported a rave reviewer. "Everyone in this household has thick, long hair. Long. Hair. I have tried every single drain guard on the market, yet there I am, a bottle of Drano in one hand and my phone in the other on speed-dial for my plumber. Until I tried this. This works. Really works. Better than anything else I’ve tried. Once properly seated into the drain hole there is very little that can get through. And it sits up above the level of the tub floor so that not only does the water go through it easily, you can just pluck it out and toss whatever hair has wrapped around it. You won’t regret getting this.”

Easy to clean

To keep your TubShroom lasting long, you do need to be diligent about cleaning the hair out. Maybe not every day, but every few days. Another tip: Clean it out when it’s dry — not immediately after showering (it’s quicker and lessens the ick factor). If you want to go above and beyond, try rinsing the Shroom after removing the hair so that the “pores” won’t get clogged over time.

“Great for household with three females with long hair and two men with chest and leg hair,” says a five-star reviewer. “We hate digging hair out of the drain after our showers, knowing tons got missed and will damage the pipes later down the line! This little charm is awesome, collects the hair around the bumps and is easily collected after each shower. Still kind of yucky to gather the hair, but I feel like it will save us money with a plumber in the future by keeping the hair from getting down the drain!”
