Clogged drains are a problem that almost everyone has to deal with — whether it be your sink, your shower or your tub. At some point in life, we’ve all had to reach for a bottle of cleaner or call a plumber when we find a pool of water around the shower drain.

But what if there was a product that could prevent this from happening? Luckily for us, it looks like Amazon customers have found it — the TubShroom: The Revolutionary Tub Drain Protector.

Amazon

Available in six different colors, the TubShroom is ranked as “Amazon’s Choice” for drain catchers and has 4.3 stars with over 12,000 glowing reviews.

“When they say it catches every hair they aren't kidding,” one reviewer raved. “We clean it off about twice A WEEK! And when they say it's easy to clean, they are right again ... I've already told so many people about this product because I love it so much. Fantastic!!!”

Amazon

Many reviewers are so happy with the TubShroom that they recommend also buying the SinkShroom and ShowerShroom to protect all of your home's drains.

"Buy one for every bathroom and one of the sink ones for every sink in your house," one customer wrote.

So instead of shelling out hundreds of dollars for a plumber or buying yet another bottle of liquid cleaner, why not try the TubShroom? It’s only $13!
