After you're finished, you should be standing in ankle deep dirty water (it's kinda gross). Then, take the stopper out of the drain and drain the tub. 60% of the hair should be on the sides of the tub. All you do after that is wipe up the hair with toilet paper or a cloth.
I bet it works, but I can't try it. I'd probably throw up.

I also do the baking soda and vinegar in the drains about every three weeks -- works like a charm.

For anyone else who's interested, you can see it here:

http://www.zipitclean.com/greatest_clog.htm

If you get grossed out easily just don't look at it. Consider yourself warned!

I got grossed out by what was in my sink. I actually stopped in the middle and put gloves on. Whatever that was I didn't want it accidentally touching my skin.

My shower and sink don't clog up too bad and draino seems to work.
I was going to get the zipit, but uh after watching the mini informercial scared the mess out of me... I couldn't do that, so I think I will get the drain thingy that Allandra mentioned. I don't mind getting the hair before it goes down the drain, but to see that mess after it is in the pipes...Oh no!

Hey coco!

Okay... I Zip'd it


Not for the easily disturbed . . . I must have Zip'd it like 40 million times. No drain in the house was safe.
