As Seen on TV

Our relationship with the ShamWow began as a joke Bryan posted on Facebook. On Mother's Day he posted that he was getting me a ShamWow as a present. I told him he couldn't put it out there to the world without delivering!

He was unsuccessful in finding them at Lowes, but the associate there pointed him toward Walgreens. At Walgreens, the young, enthusiastic employee showed him where they were while informing him that there was even a ShamWow fan page on Facebook.

The bottom line is that we love these things! They are great to have at the table for spills (which happen at every meal around here). I love them under my drying dishes because they don't get soppy wet like a towel. And those potty-training accidents on the carpet... dried up in a flash! Then they can be tossed in the washer.

I've seen them lately at the check-out lane at Wal-Mart. Give 'em a try. If you're not familiar with the ShamWow, here's the commercial:


  1. This made me laugh so hard! Did you know that the spokesman for Shamwow has a rap sheet? Seriously, you can see his mug shut on the internet!

  2. Lol it seems like something my husband would to do me. :)
