How to keep your drains clog-free without chemicals!

I love to clean, but I don’t like “gross cleaning”. The kind of cleaning that requires me to fish hair clogs out of the bathtub drain, that kind of gross cleaning.

I have longer hair and every few weeks, my bathtub will start to drain slower and slower until I finally need to clear things up with chemicals. I really don’t like doing that, especially when I read the label. Eee gads, it’s scary, like zombie apocalypse scary.

I don gloves and safety goggles and follow the directions on the label, leave a note that NO ONE is to use the tub for at least 15 minutes, and then I wait until I can run hot water down the drain hoping everything runs smoothly and quickly. Sometimes, that works, but sometimes I need to go through the entire process one or two more times.

It’s annoying.

Super Easy Installation

I honestly thought that unless I wanted to go the totally icky fishing method of using a tool to pull hair out of the drain (OH MY WORD), this was my only option, until I tried TubShroom.

I wasn’t sure how or if TubShroom would work and I worried that it would be hard to install but it literally took less than 30 seconds to swap out my traditional mesh strainer for the TubShroom.

All I had to do was unscrew the middle screw, pull out the strainer and place the TubShroom in place. It sticks up like a mushroom cap and doesn’t slow down the water draining from the tub at all.

My tub is old so ignore the ugliness – it’s on the list of things that need to be updated, someday soon, hopefully. 😉

No More Clogged Drains

I waited a few days and checked it and it had done its job well. There was hair coiled around the base that it prevented from going down the drain and all I had to do was use some tissue to pull the hair off. The TubShroom was ready to go again and I put it back into place.

So far, I have only installed it in the bathtub but there is a SinkShroom as well that will be perfect for the bathroom sink.
