The Briggs credit a piece of dental floss that went down the drain for inspiring their invention. When they managed to pull out the floss, a big clump of hair came with it. Take a look at any drain pipe and you’ll see what the Briggs saw—it has a curve. That curve is where the hair collects and gets stuck. DrainWig is a ball chain with several rubber whiskers that catch the loose hair before it has a chance to reach the curve of your pipe and cause buildup.
Just feed DrainWig down your tub or shower drain and retrieve it a few months later by pulling the white plastic flower. Designed to be simple to replace every three months, DrainWig is a small price to pay compared to plumbers and harsh chemicals that treat the problem, but don’t prevent it from happening again and again. With DrainWig, you can let your hair go down the drain without watching your money go with it.
