Does the Schticky Really Work?
The Schticky is a re-usable lint roller that can be used on a variety of surfaces to clean many types of messes. This roller claims to be a great solution for quickly cleaning up lint, dust, dirt, and hair. The Schticky is supposedly made from a special silicone that gets slippery when wet but sticky when dry, making the roller easy to clean by rinsing it in water while maintaining the roller’s stickiness. Because it is re-usable, the Schticky can save up to $100 a year over paper-based lint rollers. The spokesman for the Schticky is Vince Offer, the pitchman best known for the ShamWow commercial. Also available is the “Little Schticky,” a small, portable version. The advertising claims Schticky is safe for all sorts of clothing fabrics from velvet to wool. The large version is the “Big Schticky,” designed for cleaning messes off of floors and carpets. The Big Schticky features a brush attachment that pulls up hairs deeply embedded in carpet fibers.
