Do you get frustrated when your bathroom drain clogs over and over again? If you’re like me one clogged drain is one too many!
For someone who’d rather spend time playing with the kiddos than trying to figure out how to use that drain snake (gross!), here’s a quick tip you can try to prevent clogs in your bathroom drain.
The average woman loses 50 to 100 strands of hair per day. Yes, you read that correctly. 50-100 strands. That makes hair the most likely culprit of a clogged drain. If even half that amount actually makes it down the bathroom pipes, the potential for a clogged drain is huge. So, to prevent clogged drains in the bathroom, we need to find a way to minimize the amount of hair making it down the drain. Makes sense, right?
To prevent hair buildup in your drain, try this simple trick:
Anyone in your family who has long hair (consider your hair “long” if it’s longer than an inch!) should brush their hair immediately before showering or taking a bath. That way the majority of the loose hair is caught in the brush rather than getting stuck in the drain.
How’s that for an easy and inexpensive way to keep the shower drain clog free?
