I just bought this Prime Day hair catcher because I hate unclogging my shower drain
Of all the chores I do, my least favorite is unclogging my shower drain. Not only is it really painful trying to get the snake down my pipes, there’s something about pulling that clump of wet tangled hair and soap scum that really turns my stomach. Luckily, there’s a Prime Day deal that might be the answer to my problem.
I have high hopes for the TubShroom Ultra Revolutionary Bath Tub Drain Protector, which is on sale for $14.99 at Amazon (opens in a new tab). This device fits into your shower drain and is meant to catch hairs before they get deeper into your pipes.
Because my house is about a century old, all the pipes have what appear to be different diameters than what is standard these days. This includes the shower drain in my master bathroom. There was no drain cover when we moved in, but I didn’t give it much thought until the water started to come back up.
I love my wife and her long wavy hair, but I don’t like getting it out of the drain, which I’ve had to do a couple of times. We tried several different drain covers and hair catchers, but none worked well.
I’m hopeful for the TubShroom, which has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon with over 39,000 reviews. I like how the top of the gadget is domed and comes with several adapters so I’m pretty confident it will fit my shower. Its stainless steel finish also means it has to look good – as good as any shower drain can look, that is.
At just $4 off its regular price, it’s not the biggest Prime Day discount I’ve seen. But it’s the one I’m willing to try, if it means no more clogged showers. Although if that happens, I know how to unclog a shower drain without calling a plumber.
