Investigate slow drains immediately!! Especially if they are in the bathroom used by your children!!!

My daughter's bathtub drain has never been the fastest thing out there, but we had it checked out by a plumber who said it was fine. Lately, however, I've noticed the tub kind of filling up a few inches--without the plug--hmmmmmmmmm....

So I'm cleaning her tub today and notice something in the drain. A hair? Funny, I use one of those rubber hair catchers over her bathtub drain. I start pulling the "hair" and an immensely long, tangled, and yucky hair thingy comes out of the drain.

The "hair" is not any normal human color. Hmmm... let me feel this between my fingers.....yep, you guessed it, Barbie hair. :SIGH:

Luckily, it wasn't too much and when I rinsed the tub, the drain was back to its normal (not too fast) self!!!

You see my little one LOVES to wash her dolls, toys, stuffed animals. I have to keep a look out when she's at her sink and during her bath.

So parents, take it from me, act promptly!!!

kiss

You should spank her.

I routinely have to pull a small hairy goat from my kids bathtub drain. It seems to form from the hair that comes off their heads. These semi-intelligent life forms are really gross and quiver from the light like those sewer pipe worms in the news recently. I don't think they're worms at all...just kid hair clustering up and making a break for it.

Some years ago I was visiting my sister when her youngest was still quite young. Sis and I are sitting at the table chatting when her daughter, 3, comes tearing out of the bathroom, eyes down in concentration. She looks up, and, visibly startled to see us, slams on the brakes.

"I wasn't doing anything!"

Mm-hmmm.

We head into the bathroom to investigate: the toilet is overflowing. Why? I'm no plumber but my guess was it was related to the orange plastic jack o' lantern jammed in it.





"I wasn't doing anything!"
The most incriminating sentence in a child's vocabulary!!!

No, Matt!! They are hair catchers and made of flexible rubber. They sell them in our supermarket chain--the wonderful Publix. They are hanging in the laundry detergent aisle.

If not, maybe Walmart or Target might carry them. I got both photos off of ebay. People are selling them there as well!!
