Q & A

LTM (laughing to myself). Has anyone ever tried the Sham-WOW product? I was just wondering if it is does what it says in the commercial?

    • Here are a few statistics I found online.  

      ShamWow!

      Stars: 3 out of 5

      Cost: $19.95 + $7.95 P/H on Web site  

      Claim: It’s like a chamois, a towel and a sponge.It holds 12 times its weight in liquid. Easily removes stains, doesn’t drip or make a mess, machine washable, lasts 10 years.

      Pros: It did the job nicely and the cloth held the water in the fabric. Was not messy. Upheld most of its claims.

      Cons: The bold orange and purple colors are not pleasing to the eyes. After use the fabric gets ratty, would be shocked if it lasted 10 years as claimed.

    • More product reviews lol.  

      Snuggie

      Stars: 1 out of 5

      Cost: $19.95 + $7.95 P/H on Web site, but our tester found one for $15 at Walgreens  

      Claim: The blanket with sleeves keeps you totally warm and gives you the freedom to use your hands.  

      Pros: It was warm and it was a good conversation starter.

      Cons: You overheat after about 5 minutes, and it’s so long it’s impractical. Your hands and arms get lost in giant wizard sleeves, so movement is actually rather restricted. It’s just a backwards robe, so your entire back is exposed—and not so snug.  

      Pedi Paws

      Stars: 4 out of 5

      Cost: $19.99

      Claim: The incredible pet nail trimmer won’t crack, splinter or break nails. It’s fast, easy & gentle.

      Pros: Easy to use once pet is used to having nails filed. It eliminates mess of traditional trimming & has quiet motor.

      Cons: Requires time and patience to get pet used to it. It was a challenge to keep hyper dog calm long enough to file all nails. Unit head is a little bulky for use on small dogs.

      PedEgg

      Stars: 4 out of 5

      Cost: $9.95

      Claim: Gently remove calluses and dead skin with the ultimate foot file.

      Pros: One reviewer found it uncovered soft skin that had been buried under hard calluses for years. The canister was filled with white shavings as shown on the commercial.

      Cons: For another reviewer, whose feet only had dry skin (no calluses), the PedEgg did not work at all. Not a single shaving in the “egg.”

      Aqua Globes

      Stars: 4 out of 5

      Cost: $9.99 for two

      Claim: Waters plants perfectly for up to two weeks.

      Pros: The globe does slowly deliver water to plant’s roots.

      Cons: Biggest worry is due to weight of globe, plant could fall over and break glass globe. Water does not last two weeks, but does hydrate the soil for a week or so, depending on size of planter.

      One Sweep Broom

      Stars: 3 out of 5

      Cost: $4.99 at CVS

      Claim: Nothing sweeps better! Picks it all (dirt and dust) up in just one sweep.

      Pros: It did sweep various surfaces fine. The long handle comes apart so it is very easy to store.

      Cons: When it comes to liquids and pet hair, our reviewer still prefers towels and a vacuum, since the OneSweep did not “pick it all up.” The claim of “nothing sweeps better” is overrated.

      Pasta Express

      Stars: 3 out of 5

      Cost: $9.99

      Claim: Cook, strain & drain—all in one!

      Pros: Less bulky and less mess than using a large pot & colander. Cooks more than just pasta.

      Cons: Takes time to get the process down. Handling the boiling water was scary—our reviewer was never sure the top was on securely.  It did not fit in dishwasher easily.

    • Now the Pedi-Paw, I did buy and it to me is not as quiet as they claim, also it is again to me a little too rough on the pets nails and yes you need to take time but who has that much time to wait for the nail to file down, not for the dog to get used to the procedure. Not a good product in my opinion.

    • That snuggie cracks me up!! Are those people too stupid to figure out how to drape a blanket or better yet, wear a robe!? On the show 30 Rock the called it a “Slanket” which made me pee myself a little!

      The Sham-wow dude was a member of the church of Scientology and there was some article I read about how this was some kind of up-yours to the “church.”

    • sounds like SCAM-wow.

      I think he’s the same dude who does the “slap shot” slicer/dicer infomercials.  You have GOT to see the parody of that on YouTube.  Too funny.

    • I must admit, I’m a sucker for the “As seen on tv” things. I did buy the Sham Wow and I absolutely love the things! Well, all but 1 of them- you gotta be careful when you throw them in the wash NOT to add softener! That one I now use for a cleaning rag, but the rest... yeah, they do what they say!
