BELLEVUE, Wash., Feb. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Founder Aaron Muller began selling the ChomChom Roller in 2013 when he realized that most pet hair removal methods at the time had major drawbacks. Sticky tape rollers cannot be reused, and leave a trail of waste behind. Vacuum cleaners are effective, but they are heavy, bulky, and energy-intensive. The ChomChom Roller was developed as an eco-friendly alternative that is 100% reusable, and requires no power source or sticky tape. It has since become the number one bestselling pet hair roller on Amazon.com with over 8,000 reviews, 84% of which are five-stars. Muller is now introducing the ChomChom Roller into the Australian market on Amazon.com.au.
