As Seen On TV

The other day, I was strolling through Target, looking for a bottle of Draino to clear a hair clog in our shower drain.

While I was in the home goods section (specifically closet organization), I found an "As Seen On TV" display of products on the aisle endcap. Of course I had to stop and look because I already watch all the infomercials on TV, and have convinced myself I can't live without half of the products.

As I was browsing, I found the Turbosnake. You may have seen the ad, but this handy little device snakes your drain for hair clogs. You shove it down the drain, give it a twist and the velcro-like attachment pulls out the hair. It was $9.99...about the same as a bottle of Draino, but less toxic. So I decided to give it a try.

The verdict?

I would say that my $9.99 was well spent! It was easy to use, and definitely got the hair clog out of the drain. It took a few times of snaking the drain for me to get all the hair (I've been shedding), but it cleared the clog, as promised. And, it comes with a smaller size for clearing sink drains.

But that's not all!

It also comes with a handy plastic hook for easy storage! Woweeeeeeee!

So, in conclusion, if you have some minor hair clogs, I would say pay the $9.99. What have you got to lose?
