The TubShroom has earned a 4.4-star average from Amazon shoppers, who say that they will "never have a shower drain without one again!"

"I was skeptical, but this works like a charm," said one five-star reviewer. "The product does a good job in catching hair," added another.

"Love it," shared one reviewer. "Saves me from having to get a plumber to snake the drain."

While Amazon shoppers agree that the TubShroom "effectively catches hairs," it's not without its drawbacks. This version is designed to fit into drains that range from 1.5 to 1.75 inches in diameter, so you'll want to double check that it's compatible with your tub before placing your order.

As one reviewer wrote, it's "not a bad product," just "be sure it's a good fit for your tub drain before purchasing!"

What's the verdict?

For an easy and effective way to prevent clogs from forming in your bathtub, a TubShroom is a quick and cost-effective solution. However, while the TubShroom comes backed by thousands of five-star reviews, shoppers caution that in this case, size really does matter. Be sure to double check that the diameter of your drains is the right size before adding it to your cart.
