In the space of “revolutionary” products, very few tend to meet the occasion. However, based on over 70,000 shoppers’ opinions, the viral and super-affordable TubShroom is one of the few that lives up to the hype.

Simply put, the small $13 product is the perfect preventative pick to ensure that you have no more clogged drains.

Both a customer and Amazon-recommended item, the TubShroom is a drain protection plug that, unlike regular plugs, neatly fits inside the drain instead of over it. Its unique form factor and design allow it to collect hair around it tidily. This way, when it’s time to clean it, all it takes is one wipe, and you’re done.

The TubShroom, which took home the award for Time’s best invention of 2018, fits any standard tub, bathroom sink or shower drain and catches any human or pet hair without disrupting the water flow.

To install the TubShroom, simply place it inside your drain of choice — and that’s it! If your drain has a cover, it can usually be removed with a screwdriver in seconds.

With over 70,000 overall ratings and over 52,000 five-star ratings, the TubShroom is a customer-favorite product that just keeps on giving. The consensus among shoppers is that it’s the “best invention ever.”

“No, seriously, this is amazing,” one shopper wrote. “When they say it catches every hair, they aren’t kidding. We clean it off about twice a week. And when they say it’s easy to clean, they are right again.”

Another shopper who’s used “virtually every style” of hair trap on the market said this one is the best they’ve “ever used.”

I used to have to throw out expensive hair traps that sit over the top of the drain after only a few weeks,” the shopper wrote, stressing that they were impossible to clean. “Not this thing!”

The same shopper also mentioned that “this does not slow my drain” when it begins to fill up. Instead, it collects the hair and still allows easy water flow. Because of this, all you have to do is set it and forget it.

The only con shoppers had for this product is that it shows them just how much hair they and their pets shed. Otherwise, shoppers say the TubShroom is “absolutely fantastic.”
