The shower drain protector is a simple design that fits over the plug hole in your shower or bath to catch hair, and hopefully stops hair balls clogging the plug hole up.
We’re a family of five (almost six) and four of those five have long hair. Including my sixteen year old son, who likes such things as Iron Maiden and this can be understood why he has the long hair. He’s into his rock and guitar music. So anyway, we have a problem with hair. We all moult when we wash our hair, and the loose hair inevitably ends up getting caught in the plug hole. This results in blocking and it is me, armed to the elbows with pink Marigolds that has to unclog it. A job that no one can possibly enjoy and involves much much much sounds like “ewww” and the words “gross, disgusting, yuk” and so on. It’s one of those has to be done jobs, regardless. Certainly doesn’t take long to become clogged either.
So when I saw the OXO Good Grips Shower Stall Drain Protector I thought this could work, this could be what I need. Definitely worth a try. It’s a very simple design, a simple disc that measures 12cm across, with a slight curve on one side, a silicone rim to hold it in place and drainage holes that allow the water to flow but the hair to become trapped. It’s stainless steel so does not rust and is easy to clean.
So does it work?
Yes! It works great, does exactly what I hoped it would and we have much less hair clogging the plug hole now. Less need for those pink Marigolds. Phew! We have a routine now of cleaning the disc after our showers, as it’s so easy to do. That way everything stays clean and no unsightly hair balls build up on the disc. Excellent.
Fuss Free Living ratings for OXO Good Grips Shower Stall Drain Protector
Appearance 5/5 It’s neat and tidy looking, and doesn’t look out of place in the bathroom.
Value 4/5 The drain protector costs £6.64. A little over £5, I feel is reasonable enough, perhaps a little off putting if you consider it’s just a bath drain cover. But being made from stainless steel, I feel the quality is there.
Convenience 5/5 A simple and effective design that works well. Certainly saving me time on doing the gross jobs in the bathroom.
