how do you use your shamwow?

Recommended Posts

OMG we use ours all the time! The little one we use for the kitchen counters, in place of papertowels or j-cloths. This rocks! So after dinner we wet it and wipe down the counters.

 

We cut one of the larger ones in half and have one in each bathroom for wiping out the sink and faucets of tootpaste dust.

 

 

The other big one we have at the back door and use to dry the dogs off when they come in from the snow/rain. They REALLY do pick up alot of water! Especially around the paws.

 

There is one more that Chris is waiting for the spring to use... on the cars!

 

We just hang them to dry, and throw them in the wash with our other towels once a week, but NOT in the dryer!! LOL.

Way to save the day on this one Debs...I was getting a little disappointed about the low to no usage of the shamWOW product. I tend to think I would use a shamWOW a lot, especially with car washing and spill sopping. I always pour too much water in two tropical plants I have, and they leak onto the floor every single time...I think that would be a main use for me.

i can't think of a single use for it other than wiping down the shower doors when i'm done - which means that i have to leave it to dry and it's all grody looking and there's a perfectly good squeegee hidden in the shower....

i guess dishes.....

really! why can't they make them in neutral colors that match more people's decor? i mean, we're registered for orange dishes and all that orange-handled rachel ray cookware, so it matches our stuff, but we're weirdos. LOL! most of the world doesn't love orange.

Hey ladies, I think I heard somewhere (or maybe I dreamed it) that putting a small shamWOW in your OOT bag for guests to use when they get out of the pool to dry off with...I was thinking of buying a bulk box at Costco for this purpose...and of course adding a fully little note with each so my guests know what they're for! I've never had them, so what do all you experts think...good idea or no?!

I'll bet (now don't quote me on this since I don't even own a ShamWow) that if you run your Sham through the wash again and not put it through with a dryer sheet your Wow may return. Fabric softner (dryer sheets) are designed to stay in your clothes that is why they don't want you to use them. It will clog up your towel, but if you wash it once or twice you should get all those chemicals out and you Wow may return.

I sell Norwex (which are microfibre cloths that clean everything in your house without chemicals) and we have the same rule for our cloths but I know people have forgotten and thrown in the dryer sheet. It may reduce the life of the cloth but shouldn't ruin it instantly.
