Cleaning is never really a fun chore, but the worst task on your to-do list might just be cleaning hair out of your shower drain. Not only does it get a little gross, it's also a bit of a challenge, too, since hair has a tendency to get wrapped around things. Luckily, there's a solution that's both super easy-to-use and super cheap: the TubShroom.

The TubShroom is a drain protecting hair catcher that sits inside your drain instead of resting on top of it like most drain catchers do. It's designed to catch all the hair that tries to go down your drain while still letting water through, so you don't have to worry about pulling hairs that slip by out of your drain later on. Of course, you'll still have to clean it out regularly—much like your drain itself as well as other drain stoppers, it'll get pretty gross if you don't—but the clean-out? Much easier than untangling hair from your pipes.

The best part is, the TubShroom is a customer-favorite. With more than 36,000 reviews on Amazon and a 4.4 out of 5 star rating, you know it's effective. One reviewer writes, "This thing is amazing! It fit into my standard drain perfectly, and I don't think a single hair slipped by it. It was pretty gross to see how much hair I lost in just one shower, but it was comforting to know it wasn't clogging my drain. Clean up is super easy, too. I just took a tissue and wiped it from top to bottom, grabbing all the hair as the soft rubber strainer released it all easily. Not a hair was caught in it. Best strainer I've ever had. I strongly recommend it!"

And if your shower drain isn't the problem but your sink (bathroom or kitchen) drain is always backing up, there's always the SinkShroom—not to mention, a ToiletShroom plunger.
