So early March of this year, I was super fortunate to be able to attend the International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago. Through some awesome contacts with Telebrands, it turned out to be one of the best experiences in my life (aside from getting married and having my amazing daughter of coarse). So while I was in Chicago, I got to meet Telebrands CEO and infomercial king, AJ Khubani, Aj’s wife Poonam, Pitchman Anthony Sullivan, and the inventors of the Sticky Buddy themselves, Cindy and Tylor Ross. I even got to see the live demo with Anthony Sullivan himself pitching the newest Telebrands product.
I have to admit, of all the infomercials I see, I’m probably as much as a skeptic as all of you out there. I suppose I would rather like to consider myself an optimistic skeptic. But my desire to know if the products actually work and my undying curiosity is what drives me to test them out so I can share my answers. Because of this rare opportunity I had, I can honestly say, seeing the demo live and in person, and being able to hold the product and touch it and test it for myself I immediately knew this product to be true and good to their claims from the very start.
Over the last several years, I have owned, and seen many different sticky rollers, but this was something all its own. This was one of a kind. Unlike all other Sticky rollers, this has little stiff cone-like “rubber fingers”. Why are these important? Simply because they dig deep into your carpet to pull up the crumbs, pet hair, and anything else you have settling down in there.
You can use the Sticky Buddy on any fabric or surface, it will last you a lifetime, and it’s extremely affordable. Many years ago I used to use the sticky tape lint rollers, but they used to be so expensive, they would never last, and they would often break. Not to mention I would prefer to be more environmentally friendly. Why waste paper on something I’m just going to keep throwing away? It’s essentially like I’m throwing my money away.
So anyways, for those that don’t know, my daughter is 2 ½ years old and when I come home from work, some days its like a tornado hit the inside of my apartment. There could be hundreds of toys spilled over, and anything from chips to crackers, to popcorn, to her piggy bank being opened and coins everywhere, to cookies or goldfish being smushed into my carpet. Yuck….. I don’t even know how it gets that bad, but as Anthony Sullivan said in his pitch, it takes less time to clean a mess with my Sticky Buddy, than it does to get out my vacuum. Not to mention, you can’t even vacuum coins without damaging your vacuum…
I have mentioned several types of messes I encounter as mother to a toddler, and my Sticky Buddy can handle cleaning all of them ( except the large toys of coarse). There are even other messes I didn’t mention. For instance, my daughter got into my pantry and took out a new full bag of California rice and spilled the rice EVERYWHERE. Oh yes, that happened. I’ve also had to clean up an entire full size bottle of baby powder she squeezed empty all over her bedroom, and even an entire bag of flour that covered our livingroom. Oh, and then there was the time she spilled a box of macaroni noodles all over. As frustrating as you might think it would be, in those particular times, I can’t help but laugh. After all, she’s only 2 ½. What can I expect? And there is nothing more adorable than seeing her happy face spreading all that rice around, brushing it with my makeup brush as if it’s a dinosaur bone excavation site. Or when she’s white as a ghost covered in so much baking flour I can’t even see her eyebrows. Those are the moments I live for and I love every minute of it.
I think of the three different size Sticky Buddy’s we have that came in my set, I honestly couldn’t tell you which size is most often used or which is my favorite. I use the full size roller for the big messes, I keep the travel size in my purse, and the medium one I use all over. Most often I use the medium one in my car for all those crumbs we aquire, and the occasional trip to the beach sand that tries to come home with us. But more importantly, since late March, I started working a new job at Green Cleaning Seattle for an eco friendly cleaning company. Since working there I have learned a lot about what it means to be “green”. I recycle a lot, I reuse whatever I can, and I try not to use harmful chemicals as much as possible in my home life. I have found my Sticky Buddy to be such a great help, I recently started taking it to work with me.
You see, although I only have one cat, and pet hair doesn’t ever seem to build up in our home, a lot of the other people I clean for do have that problem. Especially people who own more than one furry friend, and it is especially great to use on furniture which sometimes it might be difficult to vacuum. Or for example small entryway rugs where pine needles, or pet hair gets embedded deep within making it difficult for even most vacuums to get it out.
This is a great product, It lands within my top 10, and all I can say is Sticky Buddy For The Win! I hope you love it as much as I do, thanks for reading
And I hope you enjoy my video, which I filmed while I was in Chicago
