(WXYZ) - In today’s bustling world, we’re always on the go and we’re always getting dirt and other marks on our clothes.
Well, two sisters from Rochester Hills have invented the Unmarx to help solve that problem. It’s a hand-sized pad that has a mesh scrubber that gets pesky residue off your clothes.
The product idea was born when Nancy Tomovska and her sister, Stephanie, were on their way to a meeting. Stephanie noticed Nancy had deodorant all over her shirt. She grabbed a wet towel to remove the mark, but it wasn't good enough.
"When I got to the meeting I realized i had this huge wet spot," said Nancy. "Steph and I talked about looking for another product and we couldn’t find anything out there."
That's when they decided to create one together.
The Unmarx vanquishes deodorant, baby powder, makeup—just about any dried substance that may end up on your shirt.
"It lasts a long time, that’s the great thing," said Stephanie. "You don’t need any refills… you don’t need water. It works, boom, the mark you find, you just throw it back and you go and move on with your day."
The pair’s most recent success: Unmarx was selected to be in Swag Bags for Celebrities and VIPs at the Golden Globe Awards.
The Unmarx retails for $9.99 with 5 percent of their annual proceeds going toward fighting breast cancer. It’s a cause that means a lot to these sisters.
"We lost our mother to breast cancer 6 years ago, so that’s always been something that we thought we’d be involved in and when we created this product we wanted to make sure we gave back," said Stephanie.
Nancy and Stephanie are also proud to be Michigan entrepreneurs.
"We’re proud to just be able to do it and make it here in Michigan and keep it home," said Nancy.
The Unmarx is available in select stores and online. During the month of October, the girls are offering free shipping for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The promo code is PINK13.
If the product does get a little dirty, the girls say you can wash it in a light, cold cycle.
