A Sham-Pow! is a home cleaning and personal use multi-tool, similar to a thick, yellow cloth towel. It is soft like a blanket, sturdy like a bath rug, and extremely absorbent. Spencer Shay purchased several for his personal use and is very fond of exclaiming Sham-Pow! when using or describing the object. This appeared in iDate a Bad Boy. The Sham-Pow! can absorb up to three times its weight according to Spencer.
Sham-Pow! is a rather obvious parody of the Shammy, or Sham-Wow! According to his blog, Dan Schneider decided to put Sham-Pow in an episode after several of the iCarly writers ordered Sham-Wow's and became obsessed with them.
Apparently, Sham-Pow is a commercial that comes on at three in the morning and originated from Germany.
Spencer: (pours Carly's grape juice on counter)Don't fret. This'll soak up that faster than you can say Sham-Pow!
Spencer:Say it slower.
Spencer: Feel my hair. (Sam feels it) Soaking wet right?
Spencer: (wipes hair with Sham-Pow) Feel my hair now. (Sam feels it) Dry right?
Sam: Is Carly here?
Spencer: Wanna see what happens when I stick my Sham-Pow in the toilet?
Like a shammy/like a towel, the Sham-Pow! is a sponge and a washcloth mixed together times five.
