    I use Zipit. It works just like the video. But I think prevention is better. So, I'll probably be investing in a Handy Trap soon. Thanks Allandra.

    I bought the hair trapper, the walgreens drano, and they was out of the Zipit!

    Whatever it was is out cause the water is now out of the tub, but now when I run water in it the drain is now leaking really slow which makes me think there is a huge buildup problem. I notified the apt complex and they are gonna come tomorrow.

    Damn I wish I had that zipit.

    It was long enough for my tub, but harder to use because the drain is curved (unlike the sink).

    Baking soda and vinegar also clear a clogged drain. Just pour baking soda down the drain and following with vinegar. When it stops bubbling, rinse with hot water for a few minutes.

    The power of this forum always amazes me.

    My roommate and I have been having problems with your shower drain. We usually use Liquid Plumber, but that stuff is expensive and only lasts for a few weeks.

    A method that I adopted (although it requires you to clean your tub after every time you wash your hair) is to use the drain stopper during the entire shampooing process. After you're finished, you should be standing in ankle deep dirty water (it's kinda gross). Then, take the stopper out of the drain and drain the tub. 60% of the hair should be on the sides of the tub. All you do after that is wipe up the hair with toilet paper or a cloth.

    I also do the baking soda and vinegar in the drains about every three weeks -- works like a charm.

    I got grossed out by what was in my sink. I actually stopped in the middle and put gloves on. Whatever that was I didn't want it accidentally touching my skin. :barf:

    went out and got one, i hope it's long enough to get the job done seeing as I have been shedding off and on for 2 years.

    It's the length of my arm about 30"

    My shower and sink don't clog up too bad and draino seems to work.
    I was going to get the zipit, but uh after watching the mini informercial scared the mess out of me... I couldn't do that, so I think I will get the drain thingy that Allandra mentioned. I don't mind getting the hair before it goes down the drain, but to see that mess after it is in the pipes...Oh no!
