Unclog Your Drains With Zip-It

For awhile now, our bathtub was draining slower and slower. I figured it was my hair (I shed a lot :() so every once in awhile we would buy some drain-o which worked, but it wouldn’t be long before it was slow again. We weren’t too happy having to use something so toxic so often so I looked into getting a drain snake. I checked out the plumbing section at Walmart and ended up getting this!

Cobra Products 400 Zip-It Drain Cleaning Tool

It was only a couple of dollars….cheaper than getting a snake which I wasn’t even sure was going to work so I thought it was worth a shot. Turns out it worked and now our drain is super fast flowing (yay!). So of course, when I come across a product I really like…I have to share it with you guys :) For all of you that suffer from slow drains caused by your shedding hair…this is great! Check out some of these photos (or maybe not if you have a weak stomach haha) from their website from other customer testimonials.

FYI, this product is touted as a one-time use product and is not super long so if your clog is deep or u run into this problem a lot, it’s probably worth it to invest in a snake drain.


For people wondering about my 28-day challenge, the first half of the week went really well. But then it kind of got ruined with the St. Patrick’s Day potluck we had at work that I forgot about ha ha.

You can also use a metal coat-hanger bent into a hook. It will clear out most of the hair.
