SinkShroom – World’s Best Minimalistic Hair Catcher!

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2016-07-26

SinkShroom is the new strainer / hair catcher designed to fit any standard bathroom sink drain. For such a small product, the benefits are numerous. If you’ve tried other drain protectors or hair strainers already, you know how much room there is for improvement in this space. SinkShroom gets it right every time. SinkShroom is based on the same revolutionary concept as the previous productTubShroom from the same company. It goes inside the drain thereby stopping hair, jewelry, and other undesired objects from going down the drain, thus preventing nasty and hard to deal with clogs. It’s designed to fit any standard bathroom sink that is 1.25” in diameter. The hair catcher comes in the same colors to match your TubShroom with an added color option of silver/gray to match the chrome/stainless steel appliances. You will be able to pick the color of your choice in the survey that will be sent to you at the end of the campaign. Installation literally takes seconds and when it comes to performance, SinkShroom is second to none.  If your sink is equipped with a stopper, it can easily be removed. Just loosen the screw located below the sink and pull out the stopper. Keeping your sink clean was never this easy!

YOu guys really have some set! People are complaining about the horrid quality of your showershroom and you don't respond to that at all, you ignore it here and on Amazon yet you know how to communicate when you want to sell another item. I do NOT trust you as you KNOW there is a quality issue and you are not addressing it.

I have the same problem, mine is filthy on top and nothing will shift it :(

Received and used SinkShroom for a few months...the shroom turned completed black underneath (not sure if from grime or mold) and wouldn't clean off...super gross trying to clean it out too. It didn't catch any hair but clogged easily with toothpaste and soap scum. Pretty much useless and kind of an eyesore in the sink. I recently threw it out and replaced with this nifty $10 OXO drain protector that looks great, is easy to clean, and works wonderfully:

@BriCo84 - Thanks for your comment. We haven't heard from anyone having a similar issue. Considering the fact that tens of thousands of SinkShrooms are now installed all over the country and abroad, this does not seem to be a common problem. Please do share with us, however, how you were able to resolve it. Thank you!

Has anyone else run in to this problem, and Creator, do you have a solution by any chance?!? I discovered last night, that since installing my sink shroom weeks ago, my sink has been leaking in to the cabinet every time i used it. It turns out i did not put back the sink stopper rod, which left a hole in the pipe that water came out of. Obviously this was my stupid mistake. I attached the rod and sealed the hole and no problems. However, i quickly found, that my sink starts to pool water, having the rod blocking the water down the drain appears to affect the performance. So i began looking for a "seal" to use for the rod opening hole in the pipe as that would be a better solution than leaving the obstructing rod in place. I could not find one.... Does anyone have a solution, or creator...maybe you could sell something to specifically seal that hole. a simple screw with rubber grommet that is made to fit?

@David - You never submitted your survey. Please do and we'll get your pledge out to you. Without the survey we have no way of knowing where to ship. The survey is sent by KS and not us by the way. If you need assistance filling out the survey, please contact max@tubshroom.com Thank you.

@Gabriele - Thank you for your message! We appreciate you simply noting that the SinkShroom™ hasn't worked for you without blaming the product or the creators :) I just sent you a private message. Have a Happy and Healthy 2017! PS-
Could you measure your drain(s) and let me know what size they are? Do you know if your drains are a standard size in Italy? Thanks in advance for your reply.

Review from Kickstarter
What a pity!!! I was a backer for TubShroom but I early discovered it didn't fit any of my drains (it is too big for italian drains).
Then I supported SinkShroom, hoping it could solve the problem, but also this time I had to admit it is not ok for italian drains (it is too little).
Just a big pity: this could be a definitive solution, but not for italians.
Thank you anyway for your idea.

@Joel - Thank you very much for your complement! it means a lot to us. A lot of hard work was put into this and comments like this make it well worth it. We're currently developing our next product we call ShowerShroom™ deigned for the standing shower drains that are typically 2" in diameter. It should be ready by March 2017 hopefully.
Happy and Healthy 2017 to you and your family!

This is great in the bathtub. I hope one of the days you guys make the larger sand up shower (bigger drain) version. Super simple, and works well. This is one of those inventions that makes me think, why didn't i think of that. I wish you continued success, I am a happy customer.

I also find that if I have the water on more than slow that it drains so slow and the sink starts to fill.

Seriously Melanie? Apparently you backed this without reading or watching anything. And for the record, they are working incredibly for me after a few days use.

Review from Kickstarter
Is anyone else having problems with the Shroom making the sink drain sllllloooooooowwwwwlllllyyyyyy? The base of the SinkShroom is SLIGHTLY large for the drain, so that it's pushed up a little, but I'm not sure that totally explains how slowly the sink drains.
Serge and Elena Karnegie
Review from Kickstarter
@Melanie - For occasions when you need to fill up the sink with water, we suggest using a stopper. Silicone/rubber stoppers can be purchased for $2-3 online, or in pretty much any hardware/homeware store or even supermarket. We're soon coming out with a great universal silicone stopper in matching colors. We have been getting a lot of requests for it from our TubShroom customers. Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays!

Review from Kickstarter
What am I supposed to do if I want to use my bathtub for a bath? Do I have to re-install my old stopper? I wish I'd realized that beforehand because I've just wasted my money if that is the case.

Guys, thank you for letting us know you received your SinkShroom™. When you get a chance, please take a couple of minutes to write an honest review on Amazon for SinkShroom™ it will help us a lot :) As usual thank you very much for your support!

The Sinkshroom arrived yesterday. It is a perfect fit and the arms are definitely a nice improvement. I haven't really tried it out but if it works as well as the tubshroom it will be perfect.

Review from Kickstarter
Received mine 10 minutes ago, installed sink & tub shroom right away and both fit well. I wish it was a bit prettier in the sink (like having a shiny cover as plugs usually have), but keeping pipes from being clogged is more important. Thank you!

Review from Kickstarter
Got mine today...it is great. Thanks!

Review from Kickstarter
Just wanted to post a quick note that I got mine delivered. The SinkShroom is great and the arms on the side to keep it raised is a great improvement. I also got the TubShroom, but the foot is too short and it sinks into the pipe - but since it fits snug enough in the pipe I can keep it raised all by itself. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the design and looking forward to see how they both work.

Did you get my message/email? I was hoping to change colors because we are moving and green will be an eyesore in the new bathroom. I'm hoping its not too late to change. Thanks!

I am wondering when we are going to receive our product. We haven't seen any updates or information about a tracking number or anything. What is going on with that?

@ Nathan - Yes, only the stopper needs to be removed. Not the entire assembly. Thank you for your support!

Review from Kickstarter
If replacing a pop up drain....the kind where you pull up on the top of the faucet and it pulls the stopper down to plug the drain....if you remove that...do most people just pull the stopper out, but leave everything else connected? Because that pop up is necessary to plug a hole on the backside of the drain pipe. Not sure if that makes sense...just trying to get it figured out in my brain before it comes. :)

Review from Kickstarter
@Jason - The Kickstarter campaign was for our new product - SinkShroom™. TubShroom® was just an add-on and was offered at a discount, thus purchasing the TubShroom® along with the SinkShroom™ was optional. Hope this answers your question. Thank you.
