Lint Remover by Furzie Review

I love "As Seen on TV" products. The problem is that they usually don't live up to the promises that are made on the infomercials. I got a chance to try out the Lint Remover by Furzie to see if it lived up to its claims.

 Here is what the Furzie is SUPPOSED to do: The Lint Remover by Furzie will get dog or cat hair off of a variety of surfaces, and it gets human hair and lint off too. Furzie can be used on many types of clothing, upholstery or furniture. Works on many fabrics: cotton, linen, cashmere, silk, flannel and wool. It is 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

 I tried the Lint Remover by Furzie on my cotton tweed couch to remove the hair left my my dog, but it didn't get up many of her short white furs. I then tried it on yoga pants, another magnet for dog fur. Nope, didn't work. I tried it on my black cotton work pants. No dice- it mostly just moved the fur around. I was pretty disappointed, so I tried to use it as a duster on my windowsill  That actually did work pretty well-it is well designed for dusting. However, it's not marketed for that, and I think I could probably find a better duster.

 Feeling a little deflated, as this is the first product I've reviewed that didn't live up to its claims and I thought I would feel bad writing a negative review, I contacted the company that sells the Lint Remover by Furzie. I expected them to respond with some tips or tricks to help me use it, or for them to apologize for my dissatisfaction with the Furzie. Instead they said, "That seems very strange to us as the product has worked for 135 reviewers?" That's all. No apologies, no suggestions. I was shocked! Most companies are so helpful if you have a problem!

 I can honestly say this is the most unhelpful, dissatisfying, and downright rude response I have ever had when I've written to a company. I felt they were questioning my integrity and competence. So although I had high hopes for the Lint Remover by Furzie, based on my experience I would not suggest buying this product or doing business with this company in the future. I guess I will have to continue in my quest for a useful as seen on TV product!

Savvy Baby Bandana Bibs: So cute!

These bandana bibs by Savvy Baby are so cute and functional too!  I got the 4 pack, which gives you the most for your money.  The 4 pack also comes with a bonus pacifier clip in coordinating colors.  The pacifier clip can also be used to hold a blankie or stuffed animal.

What's great about them?

  • Super cute styles that are great for boys or girls because the colors are gender-neutral.  These colors can match with any outfit, too.
  • They're 100% cotton .
  • They are the softest bibs I've ever felt!  The lining is fleece so it is not going to irritate baby's delicate neck.
  • Adjustable (have snaps with 3 settings/sizes).
  • Machine washable (air dry them!).
  • Extra absorbent for extra drooly little ones.
  • Money-back guarantee- you can return them if there's a problem, even if you've already tried them out.

One thing to keep in mind is that since they're "drool bibs" they aren't for feeding baby in.  They work great for drool, but I would pick something that is wipeable for babies while they're are eating solid food.
