She has been called an Innovator of Efficiency and the Princess of Products, but most people know Lisa Ximenez as the Goddess of Gadgets, a mastermind at making life easier for everyone from toddlers to centenarians and yes, even their pets.
The single working mother said she is always looking for better, faster ways to get things done around the house. So she invented a reusable silicone cleaning tool that fits on the hand in multiple positions to enable you to concentrate maximum scrubbing power right in the palm of your hand or on your fingertips. Lisa calls it Bump It Off, and it’s become a hit across the country.
She explained, “With gentle silicone bristles on one side and smooth bumps on the other, Bump It Off has endless cleaning applications in every room of the house. I’ve been a successful entrepreneur for the past 18 years, handling international licensing and marketing for some of the most recognized brands in the world. Today, I’m focused on creating eco-friendly solutions to everyday home, health and family challenges.”
According to Lisa, Bump It Off can be used with laundry liquid or a stain remover to loosen and lift stains or to safely clean fruits and veggies. It can be used by children and adults to clean, massage and exfoliate in the shower or while taking a bath. It can also be used to groom pets and lift pet fur off upholstered furniture with amazing results.
“I invented Bump It Off purely out of necessity,” Lisa said. “I was trying to get grass stains out of my 11-year-old son’s pants. I was scrubbing a stain that was about 3-by-4 inches with a brush the size of a toothbrush head. The stain wasn’t coming out and the fibers were starting to get frayed. I thought there must be something better out there, but there wasn’t. So I invented Bump It Off. It fits on your hand, so it’s easy to control. You can apply pressure when it’s positioned in the palm of your hand or apply specific detail control when placed at your fingertips. It’s made of 100 percent silicone and it will not damage fabric fibers. It’s also easy to clean and dishwasher safe, but most importantly it gets the job done!”
Because of it’s easy to handle design, seniors also love it, making it the perfect gift for anyone in every season, especially during the holidays, Lisa pointed out.
“I’ve been told by the parents of children on the autism spectrum, that Bump It Off is very soothing and lowers their stress and anxiety.”
Keeping with the spirit of giving, Lisa has donated Bump It Off too many nonprofit organizations. She recently supported the Humane Society and SPCA Wiggle, Waggle, Walk with 3,000 free units. She said her goal is to continue to look to support organizations who could use her product to help their clients, residents, children and homeless pets.
It is the first product to win four Family Choice Awards in the same year in four different categories. The versatile Bump It Off also won 1st Place as Best New Grooming Product by SuperZoo, the national show for pet retailers.
The California resident, who also does in-store demonstrations, travels across the country making event appearances where her bright yellow display has caught the eye of many customers who were impressed with her products and viewed Bump It Off as an efficient “must-have” new eco-friendly product for their household.
Lisa says she has one in each room for a variety of uses — from the kitchen to the bathroom to the living room, adding, “My favorite uses for Bump It Off is to clean fruits and vegetables. I love it for everyday uses, but my son also loves to gently scrub the dirt away from head to toe in the bath! I also use one to clean my makeup brushes. They come out as good as new!”
Unlike other cleaning tools, Bump It Off resists stains and odors, is easy to clean, dishwasher safe and is available in a variety of colors —Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Pink, and Camo.
“It really is the better, faster way to clean everything around the house,” Lisa said.
GODDESS OF GADGETS, Lisa Ximenez, has created a reusable, silicone cleaning tool that fits on the hand to clean easier, better and faster around the house. Her popular product, Bump It Off, is a kid-friendly, pet-friendly, fabric-friendly product that can be used to remove dirt and to clean people, pets and pants. It is the first product to win four Family Choice Awards in the same year in four different categories. The nationally known entrepreneur suggest keeping one in the kitchen, another in the bathroom and one in the laundry or living room for easy access.
BUMP IT OFF is the fun and efficient way for kids to get clean, according to its creator, Lisa Ximenez, who gave her son the versatile product to use. “Clearly, he loves using it,” she said. “Other children will too!”
