DrainWig Giveaway!



Over the years, we have tried a bunch of different solutions to prevent our shower and bathtub drains from clogging. We’ve tried all different styles of hair catchers, and none of them seem that great. If the holes are small enough to catch all the hair, then they quickly clog up with lint and soap scum. Concave designs with suctions to keep them in place never seem to stay suctioned.

No matter what the drain catcher, we periodically end up plunging the shower drain. Eventually that doesn’t do the trick, and we resort to pouring chemicals down the drain. We’ve tried “bio-enzyme” solutions that claim to be better on the environment and when those don’t work, follow it up with industrial strength Drano. Despite all these measures, the drain needs attention after just another month.

I figured we were doomed to repeat the cycle of plunge and pour, since no matter how much I searched for the right drain catcher I was never successful. It turns out there is still one we haven’t tried yet: DrainWig. It’s completely different than the other products we’ve tried, so I have high hopes!

Basically, you insert a chain with little whiskers on it into your drain. A charm at the top prevents the contraption from falling into your pipes. After a couple of months, you pull the chain out and the little whiskers have caught a ton of hair that washed down the drain. Prepare to be disgusted! At least you don’t have to touch the mess that comes out when you pull up the charm.
