Sham... Wow!

I'm sure that most of you have seen the ShamWow infomercial. Just in case you've spent the last six months living in a cave...



As a joke, the hubby bought me the famed ShamWow for Christmas. I opened the box, let out a hearty chuckle and then placed the contents into the laundry room. There they remained, untouched, for over a month.

Then, one fateful night last week, the hubby dumped his freshly filled 40 oz. water bottle on the rug. As I ran to grab a towel, the thought popped into my head, "This would be the perfect time to try out the ShamWow."

I grabbed one of the large yellow ShamWows, threw it on the puddle and applied pressure for a few seconds. That was it.

I will admit that my hopes were not high as I lifted the cloth. To my complete amazement, the rug was completely dry. I even pulled back the rug to check the floor underneath. Not a drop of water remained.

With that, the ShamWow had me hooked. I'm not ashamed to admit that I use the things whenever possible. Around this house, the opportunity arises all too frequently.

In addition to wiping up the occasional spill, the cloths are ideal for drying Brick's wet fur when he comes in from the rain and snow. They also make the perfect drop cloth to catch the endless dribbles that poor from the dog's mouth when he drinks from his waterer.

Just last night, I discovered that the ShamWow's power of absorption is unmatched when it comes to mopping up a toppled tumbler of Bourbon from the sofa. Who knew?

All I have to say is Sham... Wow!

We have a big box of ShamWows. Sometimes, I use the small blue ones to wash dishes. They hold up very well. My biggest problem is forgetting to NOT put them in the dryer after washing. I have ruined many. :(
