ShamWow! Can Save the World (According To S)

The children and I are minding our own business in the master bedroom when suddenly we are thrust into an INFOMERICAL.

ShamWow! lands on the bed and my husband begins:

“Alex! I finally bought ShamWow!”

“I’ve been wanting to buy it for months, and I finally did it.”

“Now I’ve never seen the commercials, but I think that ShamWow! looks GREAT!”

“They’re made in Germany so they MUST be good.”

“I just hope that we don’t forget not to put them in the drier.”

And as we hustle the children in the bath, I mistakenly say, “I’ll go get towels.”

And my husband replies, “DON’T! We’ll just SHAMWOW! them.”

And that’s our new bathroom rug. Wow, thanks ShamWow!

She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. HaHa hilarious! I totally want to see it when I'm over! S has a point they do seem ridiculously awesome. “No more paper towels!” —> a line from the infomercial (to show my support of the shamwow)

  2. Fuh-nny! Yes, do not dry them in the drier. That's the only negative comment I've heard from them. Can't wait to hear how your life has been changed. 😉 Glad to know S feels complete now.

  3. Thanks for the laugh! I received a Sham-wow as a gift from my 6 year old son! He pleaded with my hubby to stop and watch the demonstration at the department store, and promised to give hubby ALL the money in his piggy bank if hubby would pay the difference to buy this miracle item for his Mommy…I guess he figured I needed a miracle to clean the house…I fear that he is right!
