Move Over Wet Toliet Paper There’s A Better Tool Now
This post is Mat’s Beard Bar Review and any man knows whether shaving, cutting your own hair, or just trimming your beard and cleaning up the countertop and sink can be a real choir. Hair can go everywhere, and the pieces can be quite small and hard to pick up. That is where the Beard Bar comes in, as this device claims to help clean that hard-to-clean-up hair after trimming your beard.
Let’s see how effective it works…

What Is The Beard Bar?
This is a device that helps pick up hair as it has an antimicrobial sponge that is attached to a hard plastic handle. You dampen the sponge and swipe it on the countertop or sink, and the hair attaches to the sponge. You then simply rinse off when done.
This should be called “Make Wife Happy Bar.”
People That Might Need This Tool?
- Men who shave, trim their beards, cut their hair.
- Wives of men who shave or trim their beards and have to clean up after them.
What Is Included?
1 – Mat’s Beard Bar
1 – Set of Instructions
Specs Of The Beard Bar
The length of this Beard Bar is 4 3/4″ inches long, 3/4″ inches wide, and 1 1/4″ inches tall. I don’t know the weight of this thing, but it is very lightweight.
How To Use It
The direction is super easy.
- Wet the sponge under the sink.
- Rinse out excess water by pressing the center of the sponge against a sink edge and pulling it back.
- Sweep the damp sponge along surfaces around the sink and counter.
- Rinse out beard trimmings in the sink bowl.
How Well Does It Really Work? Worth It?
I was skeptical when I first saw this, but I was hopeful enough to purchase it to help keep my bathroom counter and sink spotless. Hair on the counter and in the sink is never a pleasing sight to behold. I always seem to miss some hair.
But this really does work…and work well it does. I did my normal, creating a mess, also called trimming my beard. As hair goes all over the place around the faucet, in the sink, and on the countertop. So I took out the old Mat’s Beard Bar, wetted it, and started going to town with this thing. Right away, it picked up the smallest hair, along with longer hairs. The hair attaches to the sponge, so you can hold it under the spigot and simply rinse it down the drain. It’s super easy. Even a monkey can do it.
In the past, I would just wet a piece of Kleenex or toilet paper and try to wipe up the hair, but I often use quite a bit of that stuff to clean everything up adequately, and it would do that great of a job, either. The Beard Bar even picks up the hair that is right up against objects like a faucet or even on the faucet itself in the little crevices fantastically. I can easily fit it between the water handles and the spigot.
I am very happy with this product. It picks hairs up no matter how small. To me, it is totally worth it!
Pros & Cons
- Very lightweight.
- Gets around corners and right next to odd-shaped corners like the faucet. This very pleasantly surprised me.
- Fits into tight spaces.
- It does pick up dirt, too, which leaves a cleaner bathroom.
- It makes clean-up straightforward.
- Picks up small hair and larger hair with no problem.
- Antimicrobial sponge.
- Clean-up time is swift.
- Grabs hair most of the time on the first pass.
- Makes a great gift or stocking stuffer.
- It makes your spouse happy not to see hair everywhere after you are done trimming your hair.
- It makes it less of a choir than other methods, for sure!
- This has recently been updated with a new design and works even better.
- It might be slightly overpriced for a sponge with a handle, but boy, does it make cleaning a snap.
- Mat’s Beard Bar recommends replacing it every 3-12 months, depending on how often you use it. I don’t know about that, but I am going to make this much longer than that.
Other Products Worth Considering?
A beard bid is another similar product in dealing with hair clipping and clean-up. This is a bib that attaches to a mirror and goes around your neck, and there is a trough that the hair can fall into instead of falling onto the sink and countertop. I have reviewed the Beard King Beard Bib, and it is a decent device that catches all the hair. You can read more about it here: Beard King Beard Bib Review.
Remington Vacuum Beard Trimmer
This has a vacuum built into the trimmer. I have reviewed this, and it works very well at catching 95% of beard trimmings. Plus, it is a good trimmer, too.

Are You Happy With Your Beard Trimmer? Well, Try This. It’s Amazing!!!
I get to try and review a lot of products, and one of my favorite beard trimmers is the Philips Norelco Oneblade Face + Body. This trims so close to the skin it is almost a shave; it’s that damn close! It uses a microblade that sits flat against your skin but doesn’t cut you. I’ve reviewed other similar devices, and none of them work as well as this does.
This comes with two blades, one for trimming your beard and one for body hair. It also comes with different guide combs that work great.

The Final Thoughts On Mat’s Beard Bar Review
For such a simple device, it sure simplifies the process of cleaning up stubble. I am not going to say it is fun using it, but it is better and less of a choir than other methods I have used. The stiffness of the damp sponge and clean, straight lines do wonders for picking up stubble. It is strangely satisfying to use it.
I highly recommend considering purchasing this grooming tool if you want a cleaner bathroom and a happier spouse.
It’s just a great tool for any man! So pick on up and make you and your wife happy!
