Right before the holidays we had the opportunity to try out this new gadget called BUMP IT OFF, a reusable silicone sleeve that can be used for a variety of purposes all around your house. It fits on your hand in multiple positions to allow you to concentrate pressure anywhere from the palm of your hand to your fingertips. There are silicone bristles on one side and smooth bumps on the other.
The first thing we tried this on was our pets–we have dogs and cats and so we have an abundance of pet hair to contend with throughout our home. The BUMP IT OFF worked beautifully for brushing and removing loose hair from both the dogs and cats. Next, we used it on the cats’ cat tree and the BUMP IT OFF removed all of the loose, fine cat hair that was caked on the carpeted perches and platforms that our Dyson Vacuum cleaner attachment had left behind.
With the holidays, we had a LOT of pots, pans, and dishes to clean and some of those had to be done by hand–the dishwasher just wasn’t doing the trick to remove the caked on, cooked on messes. The BUMP IT OFF handled the job far better then the sponge and scrubbing pads we usually use.
Even though it is durable and very easy to clean (just toss it in the top rack of your dishwasher–its good up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit–we think we need more of these–one for each bathroom in the house and one to keep in the kitchen.
This thing has so many applications that we haven’t even tried yet, from cleaning makeup brushes, washing cars, scrubbing upholstery, and gentle exfoliation, we can’t wait to try them all. In the meantime, we don’t want to wait anymore to recommend it to you!
