The company’s website reveals that Shittens aren’t only for diaper duty, but can be used for pets, for elderly care and even on yourself.

Celebrities like Jenny McCarthy, Norm MacDonald and adult film star Tabitha Stevens have given testimonials on the product, with Stevens saying, “The mitt to clean your s— and keep your heiny fresh and shiny!”

The product’s co-inventor, Rachel Fine, opened up to Parents in March about Shittens, which she created alongside husband Richie Wilson. (They first pitched the idea to Mark Cuban on Shark Tank.)

“As new parents, our first big blowout happened in a car seat. Dear Lord, that clean-up was horrific,” she said. “Putting on a Shitten to wipe down the seat was a lifesaver. We don’t use them for every diaper change, but for those epic blowouts, they really come in handy!”

“We hope to be able to make them more affordable as we grow and can place larger production orders,” Fine added. “But I’ll say this: When you really need a Shitten — for baby blow-outs, toddler’s potty training, special needs, elderly care, friends overseas, camping trips, pets, etc. — they’re worth every penny.”
