Hair’s a Solution
My daughter has long hair, which means constant drain clogs. So I tried the SinkShroom. Bottom line: It works. The SinkShroom catches hair before it gets deep into the drain. Instead of fishing out clogs, I just lift the SinkShroom out of the drain and yank off the hair. Installing one involves removing the existing stopper, which can involve a little wrench work if it’s connected to an operating arm.
There are models in various finishes for bathtubs, showers and sinks. They cost about $15 each. To find them, as well as other clog-busting solutions, search online for “drain hair catcher.”
