Abshi / single-use shower drain cover

Abshi
Abshi

After several showers, hair clogges up drain, which make it difficult to clean, it’s unsanitary and revolting. Before taking a shower you place Abshi in the drain. After its completly clogged, put the pliers in the slot, this way there won’t be any direct contact with our hands, remove Abshi then replace it with a new one. It is made of recycled paper coated with Polylactic Acid (PLA).
This coating prevents the paper layer from getting wet and is a renewable resource and makes Abshi more compostable and sustainable.
