How in the world do you know what to believe? I keep seeing this incredible infomercial about this highly absorbant shammy called Shamwow! It looks like it would be a fantastic product to have around my house because I am always cleaning up some sort of mess. However, many times these infomercial products are just a ripoff and then you have a heck of a time getting a refund. All you mylot experts let your voice be heard! Have you tried the Shamwow? Does it really work like the commercial says it does...or is it just a waste of money?

I have been wondering the same thing. For me I dont think any of the as shown on tv items work like we see. Any that I have bought never work like they have shown on tv. Maybe I just dont know how to use them

I have bought a few things from those infomercials that I love. I own one of those Vidalia chop wizards and absolutely cannot live without mine. I have also bought a few things that turned out to be duds. It is really hard to tell.

I have not heard of it or seen an informercial about it either....what I have gotten is something called "the rag"....its from Norway and these rags work wonders for cleaning....they are microfiber....so if this shammy is microfiber I would say it's good....but who really knows unless you buy one!

I love those microfiber cleaning cloths. The thing I love about these shamwows is that (according to the commercial) they absorb a ton of liquid very quickly. That would sure come in handy for my daycare business.

It dose sound too good to be true and the guy selling is way to excited to not be an actor. I don't know if it works or not but I can tell you that the man in the comercial has to be a paid actor.

Lol, of course he is a paid actor. Nobody gets that excited over a cleaning cloth. Haha! Thanks for your response. I will let you know if I decide to give them a try.

I am thinking about it, but the darn things are about $20.00! It would be worth it if they work like they say they do, but if not.....
