Sink Mat - Silicone Cover for Plugholes and Drains
"I was honestly surprised by how effective this was - I knew a lot of hair got down the drain, but the amount this caught was slightly horrifying 😄 Highly recommend" Tracey, Wellington
Here's a handy addition to your home.
Bettering your bathroom is our jam. Even moreso is our desire to reduce your time spent cleaning. These silicone drain covers will do their best to reduce the hair that heads down your plug hole. Likely, we've all had to clean that out before 🤮. I won't say you'll never do it again but I'm confident to suggest less often - depending on the volume of shedding in your household!
I did try to devise a metal solution, but in reality the flexibility inherent in these will do a much better job. Give them a regular clean and dry and they should last a good while.
The Sink Mat is useful for any indoor drain, not just your shower. Put one anywhere your aim is to stop the 'bits' that can cause drain clogging.
Size-wise they are 15cm by 15cm. They have tiny suction cups as feet which I recommend you run your finger around before placement. Wet them and press onto the floor of the shower. You might need to turn the Sink Mat around until you find where they are best suited at yours - not all shower bases are perfectly level.
The Sink Mat sits up in the centre which facilitates easy drainage. You're unlikely to notice it. If you want to relocate your sink mat, lifting is easy.
We all have short hair in this family, but by God I'm surprised we aren't bald at the rate this thing catches hair! I'm so glad that it's not going down the drain and blocking the pipes. 100% recommend 👌
This thing is so helpful for getting rid of hair and saving it from going down the plug. Easy to pull of hair wet or dry and throw it in the bin. We chose white so it's not very noticeable in our tub. Highly recommend to others, especially if your household has long hair!!
Works really well
I got one for home and work (fifo) it’s made a huge difference and so easier to clean my hair out of the shower
Really helps to stop all my hair on wash day from clogging up the drain. I can easily remove it when needed. Very handy
My shower drain is too wide for the suction cups to work, I made the mistake of not checking that first. Some hair still escapes underneath it because it doesn’t seal. If I turn it upside down it captures all the hair but doesn’t drain the water well. I can see the great potential if I had a smaller shower drain. I still use it because it’s easier to clean than the original drain cover.
