I live in an apartment with an easily clogged sink drain, and I honestly don’t want to admit to you how bad I used to let it get. I hate doing dishes under the best circumstances, but when I have to wait 45 minutes for the water to drain, it’s honestly easier to just play another session of Tony Hawk Pro Skater (When I’m looking at my TV, you see, I can’t see my sink, which means it’s not there). And especially during a pandemic, the last thing I want is some strange plumber traipsing through my apartment, dragging dirty equipment across my rug and coughing on all my art.
Then I got the Kitchen Sinkshroom, which… I don’t have the words for what a difference it made. It’s like magic. Okay, apparently I do have some words (that’s sorta my job) but let’s get this link out of the way so I can talk to you about sinks.

The difference it made was immediate and profound. Water drains through the Sinkshroom I’d say roughly 3 or 4 times faster than through the standard sink basket strainer I had before. Once you’re done with your dishes, you can just pop it right out of the drain and easily empty into the trash. I’ve been using it for a week and haven’t had to actually clean it yet, and I’m not sure I ever will.
There’s no installation or anything — it just pops right in your drain — much like similar “Shroom” products from the same company, like the Showershroom and the Tubshroom. It also comes with a 3-month, “no questions asked” warranty, meaning you can return it for a full refund whenever you want.
I personally won’t be taking advantage of that warranty, since I’m thoroughly addicted to that Unclogged Sink Life and I’m never going back, but I suppose it’s nice that it’s there.
