Melvin from Fate, Texas
I found a tool at the hardware store that does a great job. I think it's called a "Zip-It". It's white plastic about 18" long and maybe .5" wide with teeth on either side. You push it down into the drain and pull it back out, and all the hair and gunk gets caught in the teeth. It's only a few dollars for a two pack, it works wonderfully, and there's no chemicals!

I read about this tip (and website) in Readers Digest. We had some shower backup and tried the Dawn/boiling water. It worked for us! (11/06/2008)
