The Plumbing Impact of No Shave November


Most people don’t consider how their daily shaving routine impacts their plumbing and drains. And shaving after participating in No-Shave November is an even bigger task than usual.

You should know a few things about the potential problems that can arise from shaving in the sink. In this blog post, we’ll take a close look at some of the ways shaving can impact your plumbing and what you can do to avoid any major issues.

  1. Clogged Drains

One of the most common problems that arise from shaving in the sink is clogged drains. Hair, shaving cream, and even small pieces of toilet paper can all contribute to a clogged drain. If you notice that your drains are starting to back up or run more slowly than usual, it’s probably time to clear out the debris.

  1. Water Spots

Another problem that can occur from shaving in the sink is water spots. These spots are caused by water droplets being left on the sink’s surface after you shave or splash off the razor. Over time, these spots can become difficult to remove and may even require special cleaners to get rid of them completely. If you’re noticing a lot of water spots on your sink, try using a towel to dry off the area immediately after you shave.

  1. Rust Stains

Rust stains can also be a problem if you shave in the sink regularly. These stains are caused by small pieces of metal from your razor coming into contact with the porcelain surface of the sink. If you’re concerned about rust stains, try laying a towel down under the razor or using a different type of razor, such as an electric razor which is less likely to cause these kinds of stains.

Pat yourself on the back for participating in a worthy cause such as No Shave November, and treat yourself and your plumbing to a nice shaving experience with these tips.

Clogged drains, water spots, and rust stains are all common problems that can arise from shaving in the sink. The good news is that there are easy ways to avoid these issues by taking a few simple precautions. So go ahead and enjoy your daily shave without worry!
