  • According to industry reports, price is the most important consideration when we look for bathroom accessories.
  • What we’re looking for is gadgets that provide an affordable upgrade. Check out these DIY decor ideas for some inspiration.
  • TubShroom is another inexpensive way to improve your bathroom. This clever little device prevents hairs from clogging up your bathtub when you shower.

At the end of a long day, nothing beats a good soak in the bathtub. But in the morning rush, you may prefer to shower. People with short hair can do this every day without causing any problems. But when folks with flowing locks wash their hair, the drain soon becomes clogged with a nightmarish weave of loose hairs. TubShroom is a neat little gadget that hopes to save you from such scares. This bathtub accessory is designed to catch all the hair and make it easy to remove.

Here to save you

There is a famous scene in the Hitchcock classic, Psycho, where the main protagonist is attacked in the shower. We are led to believe that her screams of terror relate to the knife-wielding figure that appears behind her. But she could just as easily have been horrified by the sight of drain hairmageddon.

The same fate could befall any one of us in the bathtub. Except the horror can be even worse if a matted clump of hair breaks free and rises up from the depths *shudder*.

At least with TubShroom installed, you should be protected. This device claims to catch every single hair, and it requires minimal installation.

To benefit from TubShroom, you simply detach the plug in your bathtub and replace it with the hair catcher. The design allows water to drain away freely, while preventing hairs from slipping down the drain.

No tangles. no mess

After your bath, you simply pull TubShroom out of the drain and remove the collected hairs. The cylindrical shape helps to prevent tangles, and you can clean the device with ease.

Clever design

Along with hair, this device can prevent other small items from flowing down the drain. It could save your wedding ring, for instance.

Fits with your bathroom

TubShroom comes in six different styles, ranging from vibrant orange to classy chrome. The latter option is by far our favorite — the others look a bit pre-school plasticky.

However, there is no denying the quality of this product. The design is ingenious, and this affordable little device is built to last. It even works with pet hairs, meaning you can bath your dog without facing an epic cleanup operation.

“Unlike regular plugs that go over the drain, TubShroom fits inside, neatly collecting hair around it.“

“All of our products are designed from the ground up to be as easy to use as possible. We’re not fans of products that come with pages of instructions, either. Plug and play is always the goal and most installations are effortless.” — Juka Innovations

Impressive stuff

Ingenious design

Unlike many gadgets that make bold claims, TubShroom is tried and tested. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the team behind this product has many happy customers.

Future designs

A little more aesthetic refinement would be welcome — but that’s splitting hairs (apologies).
