When it comes to clogged drains, there are few things more frustrating than a drain that gets clogged after shaving. Not only is it a pain to have to clear the drain, but it can also be frustrating when you can’t clear the drain yourself. To save yourself the headache, follow these tips for avoiding clogged drains when shaving.
Use a Mesh Strainer
One of the simplest ways to avoid a clogged drain is to use a mesh strainer. A mesh strainer will catch any hair that gets shaved off, so it never has a chance to go down the drain and cause a clog. Just be sure to clean out the mesh strainer after each use so that it doesn't become a breeding ground for bacteria.
Clear Your Drains Regularly
Even if you're using a mesh strainer, it's still a good idea to clear your drains regularly. This will help remove any build-up of hair and other debris that could eventually lead to a clog. You can clear your drains by using a plunger or an auger. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can always call a plumber to do it for you.
Shave Somewhere Other Than the Sink
If you're tired of dealing with clogged drains, you may want to consider shaving somewhere other than the sink. For instance, you could shave in the shower or in your tub. This way, any hair that gets shaved off will just go down the drain without causing a clog. Plus, shaving can be much easier when you're already in the shower or tub since you won't have to worry about making a mess.
