This continues As Seen on TV Week, full of product reviews, news and other stories of our favorite As Seen on TV products. Any product reviewed is something I actually own. Check here for a PediPaws review. Feel free to comment on your own experience with these products... I'm being paid absolutely nothing to do this, so I'll take what I can get:
Hey, I'm Wild ARS here for ShamWow. Have you ever had the urge to soak up large quantities of liquids on your carpet, and just couldn't find the right product to do it? Well, use a sponge you moron.
But if sponges don't do it for you, try ShamWow. For under $20, you can get a whole pack of ShamWows. You'll actually want to spill things on the carpet, just to see it soak it up.
Cola? You bet. Pet stains? Well, if you mean poop, then no, that's gross. But urine? More pee, please! Tears of remorse after a bitter break-up with a cheating ex? It won't piece your heart back together, but it will keep that pillow oh so dry!
Here, watch an actual demonstration performed by a guy with a bachelor's degree and a little too much time on his hands (me):
It's made in Germany. You know the Germans make good stuff. Like death camps and decades of hate. And now, ShamWows!Olympic divers use it as a towel, as evidently all the good towels were given to Michael Phelps. I think you at home can use it as a towel, too. A naughty, naughty towel.
Sure, pitchman Vince Shlomi was arrested for beating a hooker (I can't even make this up. He really was. Talk about a Slap Chop, eh, Vincey boy?). But what better to soak up the evidence than a ShamWow? Take that, CSI!... And, upon your conviction, it'll work great in the prison showers, too, Vince.
But ShamWow does have its limits, folks. Please do not try to use it to soak up any of the following:
White wine: White wine is for drinking. Red wine is for spilling on carpets during infomercials.
Peeps: Silly, you can't soak up a Peep. But you can stick them in the microwave and watch them explode. Then, and only then, can you wipe up the mess.
Coke: Flush it down the toilet when the cops come. It's not going to soak up. (Note to the authorities: This is sugar. I promise. I couldn't score coke unless you give me 75 cents and a vending machine.)
Blood: Many infomercials will tell you the virtues of being able to quickly soak up blood, but I think you should be more concerned with the fact you are bleeding profusely. (Note to Capricorn: This is hot sauce. I am not bleeding. Do not call 911.)
You are allowed to, however, use the ShamWow as a superhero cape in case you run out of spills to clean up around the home.
Actual review: They really do a nice job of soaking up copious amounts of liquid, and they stay soft. But it's not like they are reinventing the wheel, here. And they do have a weird smell when wet. I'd give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
