Utterly useless - do not buy!”
by Mrs Mazzotta
I purchased 2 of these - 1 for me, another for a friend after I'd raved about having a hair trap in my shower. Sadly my old trap no longer has lugs to hold it in place so I thought that a suction one would be a good replacement. Firstly it was almost impossible to get it to stick firmly in place, as soon as it got wet it started to move. Then very shortly afterwards I was paddling in an inch of water as there was no way that the water could drain quickly enough. A complete waste of money! I have reverted to my old broken trap. Thank goodness I hadn't thrown it away or given my friend!

Found the dossil works well for collecting even small amounts of hair and couldn't imagine taking a shower without one. My only criticism is that despite regular cleaning it goes mouldy on the underside and I have to replace it at intervals for this reason. I even take it out of the plug hole to drain and dry between uses. Can't they be manufactured with an anti-mould additive please?

We use it in our shower and it is wonderful! Its a little shocking how much hair it catches that was previously going down the drain and blocking it up fairly regularly. It looks great, stays in place well and just does a really excellent job! Nice and cheap as well!

Great wee thing!”
by Miss McCrystal
Despite some reviewers saying it didn't stay in place well, I thought it did. It stuck very well once the water came into contact with it and it covers the shower plug perfectly. It also blends into the shower tray. Great product! I bought more

Worth While Purchase”
I purchased this around a year ago, and with a little clean each week it still looks brand new! It seems to stop most hair going down the drain and blocking it, so does what it says.

Dossill Sinkie - no good!”
by Sylvia Winstanley
A waste of money - this dinky little thing's suckers just don't stick to my stainless-steel kitchen sink, and as I tip out the bowl of water and veg peelings, it politely moves aside to let them slip down the plughole!

D0SSIL SINKIE (Small)”
Very disappointed with this item, The little suction pads simply don't work at all. One appeared to stick but only for a moment and absolutely none of the others stuck for any amount of time. I would definitely not recommend it.

I was really dissapointed with this in fact I'm going to take it back. I put it in my kitchen sink and when I emptied the water out of the bowl the Dossil just floated away!! hence leaving the gunk down the plug hole. Waste of time.

Re-ordering these amazing things!”
Just about to re-order 2 or 3 dossils, have used them for years. Perfect. I agree they do get black stained after a while and no amount of cleaning, bleaching will help. I put mine in the washing machine with my towells occasionally, that does help. Other than that, after a few months I simply throw it away and order another! No big deal at the price and imagine the saving not having to un-block hairy waste pipes.

This is great! I bought one just to try it out and was so impressed I sent off for another almost immediately for the second shower. This is perfect for a shower - any hair (I have long hair which gets everywhere) just sits on top of the dossil and can be wiped off to make your shower look clean and tidy again. I would thoroughly recommend these to anyone who hates having to clean hair out of a plug

Having replaced our bath with a shower cubicle I was for ever taking out the 'trap' and removing goodness knows how much hair, often fishing around with an old toothbrush to catch more of the revolting stuff. If I forgot to do it regularly enough, the drain would begin to block and the shower would take ages to drain... Then I discovered the dossil! It works like a dream, is so easy to clean, looks good... and I wouldn't be without it! I'm not sure how it would work in a bath - but in a shower cubicle it is absolutely brilliant.

Does the job!”
by Miss SHAH
No more avoiding the disgusting job of clearing debris from the plughole. It may slip occasionally, but it really works 99% of the time.

effective - and looks good too!”
by Mrs Sermon
At last - a plughole insert that fulfills all requirements! I was concerned at first because the suckers on the dossil didn't keep it stuck in place as the plughole my bath is quite deeply set. But despite that, the dossil not only does the job of keeping the plughole clear but you don't end up ankle deep in undrained water AND it even looks good! Excellent little product.

This is the first shower plug I have found that doesn't make me cringe when I clean it. My daughter and I have really long hair and this is just magic! Hair stays on top, easy to dispose of when you're done showering. Brilliant!

Suckers don't work but ok for my shower.”
Works well in my shower, although like some people have said the suckers are next to useless and don't fix the device to the shower. I'm lucky that the shape of the shower waste is such that the dossil sits without needing to be fixed, and doesn't move or rise much. If it did it'd be totally useless as is the experience of some people.

Good idea but...”
by Mrs Finlay
I bought 2 dossils, one for use in the shower and one for my kitchen sink. Unfortunately, the dossil does not fit my sink as the plughole is too large so the dossil does not suction down all the way round. As a result when I empty my washing up bowl it unsticks and washes away making it useless in the sink. However it is working very well in the shower and is trapping all the stray hairs nicely!

I bought one of these last April for a new shower unit and it's been used every day for 9 months now. Great for trapping hair. It did start to collect mildew after a short while but it cleaned off easily, now I just lift it up after each shower and give it a shake to dry it off, no more mildew. Surprised to see comments about it floating out of place - I've even used it upside down (can't wear glasses in the shower!) and it still does the job. I'm just about to buy another for the over bath shower. I would recommend it, inexpensive and does what it says.

Worked well but hard to clean”
I used this in our bath/shower and it worked great. However, after a while it began to look so filthy that I had to bin it. I tried soaking it, scrubbing it, I even used a toothbrush and bleach, but nothing seemed to get it clean. More trouble than it's worth.

Not a power shower Hair Trap”
Based on previous reviews I bought a white Dossil to use as a hair trap in my shallow tray power shower cubicle. The Dossil could not cope with the power shower and my long hair, the end result was a flood of water over the bathroom floor. After visiting the Dossil website, I see that I am not alone in having this experience. This item is certainly not for us in a shallow tray power shower cubicle with or without long hair
