    Howdy! If you're here, it's probably because you adore baths and soaking in the tub at the end of your days like so:

    Which means you also have watched your precious bathwater, bath salts, and bubbles drain away, leaving you with not nearly enough water for a truly relaxing soak. Enter: this drain cover.

    This genius little device suctions onto your tub to cover the drain, so none of your bath water goes to waste! It's designed to stay in place no matter what kind of tub you're working with, and adds inches of water to each bath for a fuller, deeper bath every time.

    This drain stopper has over 20K reviews on Amazon, and reviewers swear by it for fuller and more enjoyable baths. In fact, the only complaint seems to be that this baby does its job, so be careful *not* to overfill and get water on your floor!

    Promising review: "Every household needs something that can raise the waterline in the tub and this Slipx one does just fine. Suction cup that bad boy and enjoy an entirely different experience. I’m a larger man, so before I was told to try this I truly had no idea how pleasing baths could be. It hasn’t leaked yet and I am able to soak up to the neck when laying deep for the first time in years." —Jake

    Promising review: "So I’ve only JUST received this today but I’m 31 weeks pregnant and love baths so I was DYING to try this ASAP. I ran the initial (as you’re waiting for it to get hot) warm bathtub water over the back of it to get the cup wet and pressed it on while the tub was filling up. Had no issues with the suction cups, and I kept checking them constantly as it filled. Word of advice DO NOT fill it up as you normally would. It WILL threaten to overflow the minute you sit in it because this thing does do its job. Thankfully though it has its backup hole on the top so it drained to a level that wouldn’t go over the tub. I ABSOLUTELY FREAKING LOVE THIS THING SO MUCH! 😭💕 and for the price it’s amazing! Wish I’d known about this my whole life." —Jordan

    Reviewers also say that they've had no problems with the suction cup function of the drain stopper, meaning it stays in place use after use and won't slip while you're mid-soak.

    I never get tired of these full bath shots from happy reviewers TBH!

    Promising review: "Very happy with this product. Easy to put on, and I’ve never had a problem with it not working while I was taking a bath. It has a really good seal on the edges so that no water leaks through. I have a strangely curved bathtub too and it has no problem staying in place." —Madeline Pautler

    Idk about you, but baths are an important part of my self-care routine for grounding and calming vibes, and I use salt baths to help my muscles recover after workouts and hikes. I *hate* when my bath water goes to waste and I can't believe I don't already own this!

    Promising review: "We just moved into a new home and the bathtubs are *SO* shallow. My soul was slowly being ripped to pieces while soaking in a measly 7" of water. Devastating! It will be a while until we can afford to remodel the bathrooms, so I needed to find an alternative solution before I cracked. This product seriously improved the quality of my life. It's a softer, malleable plastic than I originally thought, but convenient for different shaped tubs since it will mold easier. All I have to do to turn my nightmare tub into a dream was to run the suction cups under the faucet and snap the suction cups into place over the bath drain. It was so easy! I got an instant 5" more of water!! For $8?! I think yes!!! Crowds applauded and cried, it was beautiful. After each bath, I remove the drain cover and hang it from my shower caddy to dry out." —Rachael

    Promising review: "I live in an apartment with a smallish shower/tub combination. The drainage valve has been a pain in my butt since I moved in and never let me have enough water to soak my whole body. I purchased this a month ago and it has been incredible so far. I can now have around 5 inches more bathwater, which drastically improves the experience. It applies easily and pops right off to clean. It has never lost suction while I was using it." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99 (available in four colors).
