NeverWet Plunger *Review & Giveaway*

***This Giveaway is now ClOSED Congrats to Sue E who won***
I always find it so funny how concerned people are about what everyone, especially complete strangers, thinks of them. I came across this a lot in my 3 years of being a cashier. People would feel the need to vindicate what they were buying to me when honestly I couldn’t have cared less and half the time wasn’t even paying attention to what I was ringing up! The funniest one in my mind is when a lady bought a plunger. She went on to tell me this elaborate story about how she didn’t really “need” it, it was a practical joke for someone, and that she just didn’t want me to think she was buying it for herself.
Uh….ok. LoL!!! I mean, it’s a plunger, every house needs one!!! Nothing to be embarrassed about! 🙂
So you will not find me apologizing in the least bit or being embarrassed about this review and giveaway! Having recently moved we needed a new plunger and so I was honestly excited when I was contacted and given the chance to do a review and giveaway of the super fancy NeverWet Plunger!
What makes it so fancy? Why the super hydrophobic nanotechnology coating of course! (see, doesn’t that just sound so fancy?!) Basically that means that it doesn’t get wet even when you dunk it into water, and since it doesn’t get wet, it doesn’t get dirty and you won’t be dripping nasty eww yuck water on your floor when you pull it out of the toilet! A very good thing! Here’s a cool video that shows how it works

I know it looks a little infomercially but I literally just now went into the bathroom, dunked my plunger in water, then put it on a paper towel as shown above and there was no wet ring! I did it a couple of times, just to be sure, haha! This really does work like it shows 🙂 Pretty cool!

Is your Dad a germaphob or just a guy who has everything already? This would be a super funny, super practical gift for Father’s Day (yes, I know it’s only 2 days away but if you’re anything like me you haven’t bought anything yet…..and the laughs he’ll get and then how impressed he’ll be will make up for the late arrival of this gift! LoL.)

Also I have to say that this is the first and only plunger I’ve ever seen that I could use the word “pretty” to describe, I just love the clear curvy handle (yes, maybe I am a little weird, but seriously it is pretty!)

One Lucky Winner will receive their very own NeverWet Plunger!

    I can’t recall that every happening, but I’ve had strangers come up and say something rude or judgmental and then walk away without giving me the chance to explain.

    We actually bought a plunger and a HUGE can of beans for Ty one year for his bday. I’m pretty sure we told her “These are for his brother’s birthday” and she laughed.

    I had a gentelman buy perfume and he felt in necessary to explain that it was what his wife wore when she was alive and he sprays a little on his pillow to help him dream of her.

    I can’t remember anyone doing this to me and I’m pretty quiet, so I don’t ramble on to strangers. I do love this plunger!

    Well I was at a fabric store buying things to make for Nate’s themed Valentines Day gift. Our song forever was John Michael Montgomery’s “She thinks I can rope the moon” So I was going to make him a blanket that was dark blue and I had this cool glass sand that was going to be “moon dust” and I was going to buy some thin rope to make a lasso. I don’t know why, but I was embarrassed when the lady cutting the fabric asked what I was making. Maybe cuz it was kind of something just between me and my then boyfriend and I didn’t want her to think I was a weirdo LOL!! Thankfully she thought it was cute, but then she called her co-workers over to tell them all about it. I couldn’t wait to leave.

    One time I found a deal where after coupons I could get Pop Tarts for like 20 cents a box. There was a great deal going on with proof of purchases, which were much more valuable to me than even the food inside (which I gave a lot away). I had about 20 boxes of Poptarts in my cart and some woman rounded the corner and sneered at me and said to me (extremely condescendingly) “Someone likes sugar”. I just smiled and said “Yes, I do.” (Like it was any of her business.)

    I have done it a couple of times when a cashier has asked me about something that was a new product–wanted to know if I had used it before. Kind of a way to do a survey before deciding to buy it themselves I guess.

    I was asking for a refill of my thyroid medication over the phone. The nurse insisted the amount I said I was on was incorrect and to please come to the office. I did. So I’m standing there talking over the counter to the woman and everyone in the waiting room can clearly hear the conversation, which to them sounds like: “You’re supposed to be on 60mcg.” “No, I’ve been on 120 mcg for 6 months. I’m feeling stable.” It occurs to me these people must think I’m some pill popper who is haggling for a higher dosage than I need. So then I make it a point to clearly state “thyroid medication” to the nurse a couple times.

    I gotta say though, the plunger excuse lady takes the cake!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    When I slipped and fell one day I explained to a stranger that I just bought the shoes I was wearing and the heel was slippery. So not true, I just fell.-JD

    I puked in front of a stranger once in a state park. They looked at me like I must be some kind of alcoholic or something. I figured I should explain that I was probably dehydrated from hiking all afternoon and I had not been drinking.

    i was a waitress, a deli clerk at a bagel store, and a cashier for over 15 years total. also- an ice cream store employee….can i tell you how many “well, you see…” stories i have? lol
    ok, favorite one…i was 15 years old, a waitress in a local diner, and saw the father of a friend of mine holding hands with and kissing the hands of a woman who was NOT his wife (my friend’s mother).
    the hemming and hawing that went on with that one…he didn’t know i worked there, and he kept saying “it’s not what you think, it’s not what you think!”

    i also always found it amusing when people bought condoms and tried to explain them. i would just look them in the eye and say “i use the same brand!” and that would either make them laugh or get even more embarrassed….

    I actually just did this yesterday! There is someone always plugging up the toilet at work and I always walk in behind him, so I was explaining to the cleaning lady that it was not me!

  66. Anonymous

    First let me say that these plungers are THE BOMB! (oh crap, now I’m on the government watch list). I probably wouldn’t even use it as a plunger, it’d be like a toy to do experiments on ultra-hydro-phobic technology. Anyway, I find myself explaining to people alot, most recently I was talking to a cell phone rep explaining how it wasn’t my fault that I dropped my phone in a sink and now it doesn’t work so I need to re-activate my old phone until my contract is up and I can get a new phone… He couldn’t have cared less. He just gave me the code and went on to the next caller. I always feel dumb doing it, but I still do… wierd. Good giveaway, thanks!

    My sisters and I went on a trip to CA, and they decided to call me Irene for some weird reason. Then, they decided to tell the cab driver that we were there celebrating my 30th birthday, which of course we weren’t…seeing as how I’m only 26, and this was three years ago. lol. Anyhow, I kept on telling the driver, “I’m not Irene.” “I’m not turning 30.” Like he cared. He either figured out they were lying or thought that I was in serious denial and should probably be taken back to the psycho ward. 🙂

    My air conditioning went out on the hottest weekend of the year, and my husband and I checked into a local hotel at 11:00 at night since it was too hot to sleep in the house. I felt the need to explain that to the desk clerk, in case he was wondering why two people who lived five minutes away were checking into a motel (I felt a little cheap! )

    I love that plunger and it would be great to have around here to use. I’ve had a lot of embarrassing moments in my life. I guess the worst was when I went into a port a potty and couldn’t get the door that was stuck, opened, so I could get back outside. I was hollering I can’t get the door opened and finally after pulling for several minutes it opened. There was a long line of people waiting in line outside and I was sooo embarrassed, when the door finally did open.

    I had a lady slam into me with her shopping cart one afternoon and then she spent 10 minutes explaining how she really wasn’t usually so clumsy, but she had so much stress in her life right then and proceeded to share it all. (A simple “I’m sorry” would have sufficed.)

    There used to be this student at the college that I work at that would just start telling you her life story when you got within 5 feet of here. One day I was talking to the webmaster of the college when we stepped into an elevator with this woman. We didn’t even acknowledge her at all because of our conversation and she instantly started telling us about how she was SURE that her son had swine flu but she sent him to school anyway. Since then this woman has done something that caused her to not be allowed on campus anymore, but none of us are really all that upset about it.

    Thanks for the giveaway…I think everyone has had the experience of a total stranger begin a conversation with you on a plane, a bus, at a cocktail party, etc., and then proceed to converse ad nauseam, leaving you feel like the proverbial “captive audience” looking for an exit !
