The Smash Stopper (also stylized as SMASH STOPPER) is a cute and multi-functional product designed by Yannick Hesch. It is a drain stopper, but it also has more functions. This makes it a very versatile tool for your home. The Smash Stopper is made of silicone, which makes it soft and pliable. This allows it to be easily inserted into drains, while also being flexible enough to adapt to the shape and size of your drain. It’s perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, or anywhere else where there could be a clog. The Smash Stopper also features an easy-to-use tab, which allows you to grab and remove it from the drain with ease.
What’s the issue with the old stuff?
Most traditional drain stoppers are made of hard materials like metal. This can be difficult to insert into the drain and also can be tough to remove. Additionally, traditional drain stoppers often do not fit well into different shapes and sizes of drains. They are also a bit nasty after some time or even grow mold if they are not regularly cleaned. This is maybe not a health hazard but it’s surely not pleasant and there is likely to be some bad smell coming out of the drain after a while if this continues.
The design is cute, and there are several colors to choose from. This makes it a fun, attractive addition to your home and can help brighten up the drab look of most drains. It also has a sleek aesthetic that will work well in any room. Overall, the Smash Stopper is a great tool for keeping your drains clear and free from clogs. We also just heard from Yannick that there might be a future version that would feature a small tail, making it even cuter.
Smash Stopper is a curious new alternative to that
The Smash Stopper is incredibly easy to use and clean, making it a great addition to any home. To use the Smash Stopper, simply insert it into the drain and press down on the easy-to-grab tab. This will secure the stopper in place, preventing clogs from forming. When you need to remove it, simply grab the tab and pull. You can easily clean the Smash Stopper by wiping it down with a damp cloth or running it through your dishwasher.
This product claims to be compatible with 99% of drains, but the drain’s diameter must be between 10 and 90 mm or 0.39 and 3.54 inches. It can also be used to keep small items out of drains so that they don’t get stuck. So if you have small kids, this could be a great tool to prevent them from getting curious and putting things down the drain that shouldn’t go there. The material is anti-bacterial and can be fully recycled – making it an eco-friendly choice for your home.
I also liked to use the Smash Stopper as a cover for your mug or can. In Summer I had a wasp ending up in a can with a drink in my garden and if I didn’t spot it, I might have chucked it down, trying to cool down from the gardening work in the hot sun. So using Smash Stopper like that also makes sense due to its attributes and BPA-free material. Perhaps get a second one though, dedicated to that purpose so you don’t mix up something that you use on your drain with something you drink from.
I’m not sure if I’m the only person in the world who likes to mix bath and shower a little by covering the drain in the shower, but this works out fine just as much as any other application we tried out. If you need a quick zen moment in your morning shower, just take your Smash Stopper to the shower as well and sit down in down in a warm pool of water right in your shower. Or is it just me? Fair enough – it still works though.
