9 Amazon Products (for $31 or Less) That Will Solve Your “Hair Everywhere” Problems
It’s an unavoidable fact of life if you’ve got humans and/or fur babies occupying any living space: There will be hair — and LOTS of it. If you or your partner have particularly long, thick locks that love to shed everywhere you go, then you’re no doubt well acquainted with the daily struggle of de-clogging the shower drain (or “accidentally” leaving it for them to deal with). And if you were to take a peek in your vacuum canister right about now, I’m willing to bet it would be 90 percent hair and 10 percent actual dust, am I right? Then of course there’s the joy of walking around with a layer of pet fuzz on you at all times, thanks to the lovely mixture of dog and cat hair that covers pretty much every surface you own.
Yep; the struggle to live in a hair-free home is real. But the good news is, it doesn’t have to be totally fur-covered forever. These top-rated hair removal products get some stellar reviews from Amazon customers who swear by their de-fuzz-ing powers. Maybe one of them will be your saving grace, too.
When I say this thing is beloved, I’m not kidding — it has more than 17,000 Amazon reviews from customers who all gave it a near-perfect rating. Unlike most hair catchers, this one sits inside the drain, trapping the hair before it makes its way down. Best of all, it allows for easy hair removal, so you’ll never have to deal with a nasty clog again.
