Prevent Hairy Clogs | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

You can take precautions against developing a hairy clog in your tub, shower, or sink. But if you do get a clog of any type that you can’t get rid of, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.

One of the ickiest household chores has to be clearing out hair from your tub or shower drain when it clogs up. There you are, wishing you were strolling on Caladesi or someplace fun, and instead you’re unwrapping strands of dirty, wet hair from the stopper and pulling them from the drain. Ugh.

It would be so much nicer if hair didn’t get caught in the drain at all.

That’s not going to happen, but there are steps you can take to help prevent hair from clogging your drains. offers these tips:

  • Brush your hair before you wash it or get in the shower.
  • Use a kitchen strainer that fits your tub drain to catch hair before it goes into the pipes.
  • “Once a week, pour one liter of hot water down your drains. This will help dissolve any grime in your pipes and prevent hair clogs from forming,” says.”Place a used fabric softener sheet directly on top of the drain opening. Since the sheet is porous, it will trap any hair or debris on the surface while allowing water to flow. Be sure to throw the sheet into the trash after your shower.”
  • Use a drain protector.

Of course, you can’t prevent all clogs or blockages whether they’re made of hair or other things. If you get a blockage that you can’t handle by yourself, it’s time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
