Bleach dissolves hair. Hot water after each application sets for about 15 minutes usually does it.

Use Bio Clean on your drains. Eats hair grease all that nasty stuff.

yep collects at pop-up and p-trap keep those clean and don't worry about your main line because its 3-4 inch so it would take a wolly mamoth yrs to clog it up
