Dog Tips: Stop Dog Hair From Clogging the Drain With a Baby Wipe

Updated: Oct 15, 2023

When you bathe your dog, it's common for their hair to end up clogging your drain, especially if your dog has long or thick fur. To prevent this, you can try using a simple trick: baby wipes.

Before you begin the dog's bath, take a few baby wipes and place them over the drain in your bathtub or shower. The wipes can act as a makeshift filter to catch dog hair and prevent it from going down the drain. The wipes are also easily disposable, making cleanup much simpler.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use baby wipes to prevent dog hair from clogging your drain:

  1. Prepare your dog's bath as usual.

  2. Lay a few baby wipes over the drain cover, ensuring they are secure.

  3. As you bathe your dog, any loose hair will stick to the wipes instead of going down the drain.

  4. After the bath, carefully remove the hair-filled baby wipes and dispose of them in the trash.

  5. Clean the drain cover to remove any remaining hair or debris.

This simple solution can help keep your drain clear of dog hair, making bath time easier and preventing potential clogs. Just be sure to use wipes that are safe for your dog's skin and won't cause any allergic reactions or irritations.

How to unclog the drain:

  1. Pour one cup of baking soda down the blocked drain, followed immediately with one cup of vinegar.

  2. About 10 minutes after the fizzing stops, pour one liter of boiling water down the drain.

  3. Turn on the faucet to see if the water is draining properly.
