Drainwig Hair Catcher For Shower Drains

As the parents of 5 daughters with long hair and a propensity for long, luxurious showers, Jennifer and Gifford Briggs were no strangers to clogged shower drains. It’s a problem I’m sure you’ve dealt with too, and probably weren’t eager to fix because, well, it’s pretty nasty down there. It’s not until you get down on your hands and knees to clean the drain that the culprit becomes visible, but the symptoms are always obvious. Slow-moving drains, bathtubs that require extra time between uses, and sooty rings left behind. Pity on the person chosen to stick a wire hanger down the drain, only to reveal a gob of shed hair, soap scum, and grime. Every family has been there. Expensive bottles of goo can’t always clear the drain completely and can damage pipes and septic systems.

While there are many options on the market to help make this process a little more tolerable, they typically involve catching hair in a trap that you later need to clean off to reuse. Cleaning a nasty hair trap isn’t a whole lot better than cleaning the drain. With Drainwig, you won’t ever need to touch the hairy mess, and the process is so simple you could even do it with your eyes closed.

Simply drop Drainwig down the drain, and attach its cute topper to the bathtub porcelain, or let it lie flat on a drain cover. It works on all stand-up showers and bathtubs, even when the bathtub drain is completely closed. The Drainwig’s hooked chain will catch hair before it becomes a clog and when the time is right (and of course, you’ll know when that is) simply lift the decorative topper and toss the whole thing in the trash. Replace it with a new Drainwig hair catcher, and move on with your life. It’s recommend that you check your Drainwig every 2-4 months to keep things clean and flowing freely. This simple but effective hair trap is 100% disposable, and since the topper is the only part you ever touch, there’s no need to break out the rubber gloves.

Before appearing on Shark Tank, Drainwig was already gaining momentum with features on ABC, Today, CBS, NPR and more. In 2014, Drainwigs were even included in nominee gift bags at The Oscars. It’s an affordable solution to a common problem, and the easiest way to keep your showers long and luxurious, and your drains clog-free. They also make a commercial version that’s perfect for hotels and apartments buildings.
