- A woman has shared how to prevent hair from clogging shower drains

- She claims the buy can save you ‘hundreds if not thousands’ on plumber costs
A woman has shared a simple way to keep drains free from hair to avoid forking out hundreds of dollars on a plumber long-term.
Sharing images to the Markdowns Addicts Australia Facebook group, the anonymous user bought the Allstar Innovations Drain Wig from Amazon and highly recommended it to others after it caught a multitude of hair.
‘Do yourself a favour and put these drain hair catches in your budget as they can save you hundreds if not thousands in the long run-in plumbing costs. Which is a markdown right of a potential bill,’ she wrote.
‘I’m so grossed out by this retrieval but gotta be grateful I was able to do the job instead of a plumber.’

The photo shared online shows the shocking amount of hair the budget product caught which otherwise would’ve likely clogged the shower drain.
The Allstar Innovations Drain Wig is designed to catch hair before it clogs the drain and is currently sold out online, but similar items retail for just $9 each.
The gadget features a chain attached to a ‘drain wig’ that sits over the drain cover, and the item is disposable but can be used for up to 4 months.
In the comments the woman suggested first cleaning the shower pipe then placing the product into the drain.
The social media post was met with comments from others who thanked the woman for sharing the suggestion.
‘Holy yes I’m getting these!’ one person wrote, another said: ‘Best thing I did, daughter has such long hair, amazing how much hair is caught.’
‘Got my own built-in plumber (hubby), although he does whinge about having to clean the drains,’ a third wrote.
Another joked: ‘Knowing my luck this this would go down the drain and clog my pipes.’
But others seemed grossed out over the thought of needing to touch the wet drain hair to detangle it from the product.
‘We need this but you’re cleaning it,’ one woman wrote and tagged her partner.
‘I rather the plumber do it,’ another admitted.
