    I saw an infomercial for the ShamWow and was amazed. I asked for it as a gift, and got one for my birthday. I immediately tried it out, and was unfortunately disappointed... in my opinion, it worked even worse than a regular towel. And, to make matters worse, I didn't know that it couldn't be put in the dryer. After taking it out of the dryer, the ShamWow was pretty much useless. I wish it could have worked, but I don't recommend the ShamWow.

    I have used the shamwow towel and all I can say is: Don't believe the hype and save your money! A regular towel can do whatever shamwow claims it can, at fraction of the cost.

    Hi! I bought a box of ShamWows at our local bed & bath store about a year ago & placed them on a shelf in my garage. My car was in desperate need of a wash but I just didn't have the time to run to the carwash. I grabbed the hose and began rinsing away the dirt & realized it needed more than a rinse - but didn't have a sponge. I saw the box out of the corner of my eye & whipped out a SHAMWOW! It gently removed the dirt without my even having to use any type of carwashing liquid. I pulled my wet car into the garage, hung the ShamWow to dry & then thought "HEY! Why don't I see how well this works at drying?" especially since I was never good with a shammee (spelling?). My car looks fantastic! I can't believe I left these sitting in my garage for so long! I now have the SHAMWOW in every bathroom (shower doors, etc), wet bar, kitchen and especially one reserved just for my car! NOW I feel I can do a nice job washing my car at home and enjoying the sunshine vs running 10 miles to the nearest carwash to have someone else do it (and pay for it!)! I don't know why people are complaining about this. I just wet it and off I went to work with AMAZING results!!!!

    Works worse than a towel. I tried to dry my dog off after a bath, and it absorbed NO water. Tried it as a shammy on my car and all it did was spread the water out, NO absorbtion. Better off with regular towels.

    It should be called the Scam-now because the product is worthless. I bought it at Daytona Bike Week from one of those mic wearing barkers doing Scam-now demos. This thing is suppose to soak up any and all liquids instantly!!!????...that useless rag couldn't pick up an STD in a Singapore whorehouse. Save your money and keep buying paper towels.

    This item should be renamed SCAM-wow. I agree that it is good at first. But after washing, step by step as the instructions tell you to, it is no better than a big thick towel and works no better than one.

    When used properly, ShamWow is an incredible tool. I am a plumber and always keep them on hand. I put them under a leaky valve while I repair it. It Absorbs a ton of water, then I quickly wring it out and it takes another ton. DO NOT put it in the dryer. It will get ruined!

    A towel made from styrofoam would only be mildly less absorbent than these. Many of the negative reviews say a regular towel is the same, no they are better.

    My father-in-law gave us these to use and the 1st use was great, used it on our cat after her bath, i washed them and followed the instructions and the damn things shrunk. the yellow one is now the size of the blue one and the blue one is the size of a napkin. They don't work like they used to better using a towel.

    It's not just that it doesn't work as seen in the commercials. It doesn't work at all. It's almost as if it's water-resistant.

    I think the Shamwow works well...It works great as a duster on furniture really on anything. I rinse them often to keep them clean also great for the auto. I think the product is good. I bought them from BedBath&Beyond

    I bought this last year as a joke gift for my wife, and to see if it really worked. To my suprise it worked great for us when we used it HOWEVER, I (like most guys) didn't read the instructions and after washing and drying it in the dryer it became no different than a regular towel. Oh well my mistake. Don't think Ill get another one though.

    I have these, they are okay. But the commercial is so fake...watch :38 through :50 and you can notice that the soda he poured on the carpet isn't underneath like it was when he first did it, but when he goes to use the shamwow on it, it's all in there. Lol

    This product is awesome. You have to wet the cloth first and ring it out then use it. Also do not put it in the dryer with fabric softner. I personally love my shamwow. I have different ones for different things such as one for the kitchen, one for the bathroom, one to dry my dogs, etc. AWESOME PRODUCT!!!!

    Don't waste your money on these things. Just get yourself a $5 pack of flour sack towels from Walmart. They are huge, dry things easily, and they air dry faster than normal towels. The Shamwow is no better than a normal towel.

    This product works better than you can imagine. It absorbs everything you can throw at it, and you barely have to rub a spill to watch it disappear. Lately, we've been using the Shamwow by leaving it outside to collect rain water. Then we ring it out into a pitcher in the kitchen, and we have something to drink for several days. It's also very useful in the bedroom to wipe up any messes you make with your significant other. I never wash it, and it seems to still do the job, even if it's sticky and smelly. You can even use the Shamwow as a towell after a shower. A quick once-over with the Shamwow will make your naked body shine. I highly recommend the Shamwow to all, and especially homeless gypsies.

    I was disappointed. I purchased two packages so I could share them. This does NOT pick up all the liquid as shown. The counter was still wet after using it whether the Shamwow was dry or damp. After washing it was no better. The small size fell apart after 2 washings! The best I can use it for is a dust cloth but it's too pricey for just that.
