Maybe I used it wrongly”
I have read lots of good reviews on here but found this gadget completely useless. The instructions were simple but I still didn't get a huge ball of yuckiness out of the drain. I tried the shower and the handbasin, but it didn't really work for either. Very disappointed but it could be that maybe the drain wasn't as dirty as I thought.

This arrived this morning and I have spent a very productive 20 minutes clearing 2 sinks, a shower and a bath! With 2 late teenage daughters I got enough hair to make a couple of wigs and the water is draining freely. Will be ordering refill wands��

We have a grandson with waist length hair. Get's it all out. Refill packs are awkward why not supply 12 drain weasels in a capped cardboard tube? One a month for a year. As is, the cardboard backing is too long to put in a drawer and the wonderful spikey bits on the end seem to catch on something no matter where I store them

I am disabled and I have had problems with the shower drain. I tried virtually every supermarket product available with little or no success.I decided to give this a try before calling in a plumber. It does everything it says with no real effort & is much cheaper than a professional. The only difficulty I had was getting off my knees once the job was completed! Can I give it 10 stars?

A trumph for humanity”
by Mrs Moors
This is one of the truly greatest creations since the dawn of time! Living in a brand new house I was very miffed by slow draining bath and shower after only 7 months use. However, having three long haired girls in the house I though there may be a little hair down the drain and decided to give the Weasel a go. This little gem removed more hair from my drains than a yetis summer molt! The result; gloriously fast draining bath and shower and the wicked necessity to scare the hairy ones with the 'rat' (which is currently being dried ready to be left somewhere appropriate!) Mwhahaha

I have really long hair, down to my waist so I thought this was a good investment for my new flat. I've only been here a couple of weeks but the drain weasel pulled out so much hair that I was slightly afraid I was losing too much!! Excellent product and strangely satisfying to see all that gunk come out! It really is so easy to use - great product!

Why no short refills?”
by Mrs Banham
The short wand is great, the long one less so for me. Went to buy short refills and was told they are not available. Come on, no point selling something with throw away ends when you can't purchase the required refills - please sort this out.

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry the short wand isn't available as a replacement. We will pass this as a suggestion to our buyer to look into further.
I always use a Dossil to stop hair going down the bath plughole but I was amazed at how much hair this brought up! It is very easy to use. At first glance it seems expensive because you throw away part of it every time but it is still cheaper than using chemicals. I just hope the refills continue to be available, as without them, it is useless.

I had a slow draining bath so thought I would buy this "gadget"! Wow is all I can say, I am shamed to say that I pulled out a massive amount of hair and now the bath is drained before I can get out of it! Thank you Lakeland, another amazing product!

I have to say how impressed I am with this product. The drain in our bath was completely blocked and water was backing up badly. I knew that the liquids you can buy that are supposed to dissolve such blockages wouldnt work so I specially went to Lakeland to purchase one of these. It did take me quite a while and I used both of the disposable wands but was rewarded for my efforts with the many clumps of hair I removed and now the water drains away perfectly! I would say if you have got a bad blockage to buy some extra disposable wands as well in case you need them.

If you've got long hair, you need one of these.”
This may not be the cheapest way to remove my hair and other debris from the plug hole, but trust me, it really does work. It's quick, it's easy, and I can't fault it.

Quick, easy to use shockingly good! I thought I would unblock my bathroom plug hole but ended up pulling out a wet slimy hair ball as big as a guinee pig in 10 seconds! I love this product and cannot recommend it enough. Every family should have a drain weasle!.

I've tried all sorts to de-hair the bath plug drain, all have which have obviously failed miserably after having just used the drain weasel to extract an oversized slimy hairy slug from the plug hole! Yuck! But definitely works and I am sooooo pleased I bought this item. You can reuse the wand too if you are brave enough to pull off the hair that it has harvested for you.

Idea good but painful”

Where as the device cleaned well - I lost a lump of skin from my finger trying to get the handle fitted - blood everywhere. Hopefully I was just unlucky and others have better fitting handles.

Does a great job of bringing up all the hair that goes down plug-holes and causes blockages. Fed up of using liquid chemicals on slow-draining shower tray and basin plug-holes, I used this and was amazed at how much gunk, (trapped hair), it brought up. A very eco-friendly, and cheap way to clear wash-basin etc blockages.

I wasn't sure how much of a difference this product would make to slow-draining water, as I'd thought using a drain guard would mean that there wasn't much hair down the sinkhole. What came out when we used the weasel was GRIM. But oddly fascinating to get rid of 5 years of grimness in 20 seconds. Very easy to use (just click one part into another and click the yellow sheath into place to secure), clean disposal, saved us unneccesary cost & hassle.

Just like other reviewers said, it just does the job. I love the fact that I don't need harsh chemical to unblock the pipe any more.

wow, wow wow”
OMG this product is excellent. I bought this today and I have tried it out already. It's amazing, not thinking that my drains were bad in the bathroom as above looks ok, how wrong was I. Someone in there comment, commented on the hair that came out the size of a large rat.... And I can second that. Easy to use and very effective. I only hope that Lakeland don't discontinue this item. cheaper than a plumber.....5 stars

Brilliant brilliant brilliant ! Does just as the video shows and what's more you don't have to touch the drain contents just unhook and pop in the bin.

I am sure this product works a treat,the design of it suggests it would.But I bought it on line planning to use it in the shower drain in my shower cubicle and I found the design of my shower drain means the gaps are too small to fit in the end of the "drain weasel".So I could not use it at all and once I had pulled it off the packet I didn't think I could return it as I guess it's my mistake.Don't want to put people off but just check first this will suit.
