As a long-haired being, I’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 I am about clearing the drain after each shower, inevitably there’s a clog forming in the pipe below.
I’ve tried all types of hair catchers, wasted time and money with plumbers and regrettably used Drano in desperate moments. Then I discovered the TubShroom, a deceptively simple device — on sale for $13, down from $20 — with over 79,000 five-star Amazon reviews.
The genius of the TubShroom lies in its brilliant design. The TubShroom is covered in holes to allow water to pass through, and hair (human or pet) gets wrapped around the tube in one central place for easy cleaning. The product is made of silicone—making it flexible and easy to fit in a variety of tub drains (TubShroom recommends drains 1.5-inch to 1.75-inch inches wide).
An inexpensive solution
Overall, the TubShroom was by far the most effective solution of anything I’ve tried — plus, it’s cheap and it’s easy on the eyes. I bought the TubShroom in white to match my tub, but it’s also available in green, blue, gray, orange and clear. Since my first TubShroom purchase, I’ve replaced it only once, a year later. The original Shroom still worked — it just wasn’t as crisp white as it used to be. But according to TubShroom, you won’t need to replace it for at least 10 years.
Is the TubShroom a game-changer? Absolutely. Did it change my life? 100%. Do I recommend it? With every fiber of my being — and every hair on my head. But I’m not the only one who loves it.
Catches a ton
Says a very satisfied shopper: “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 …read more
