Basking in Limelight, BleachBit Selling 'Cloth or Something' Featuring Clinton

The data-deleting software application BleachBit is taking advantage of its time in the limelight thanks to Hillary Clinton, and is selling a “Cloth or Something” with a photo of the Democratic nominee.

“[In] August 2015 Hillary Clinton was asked, "Did you wipe your email server?" and she evasively replied, "Like with a cloth or something?" A year later we found out that "cloth" was BleachBit, a software application that deletes information "so even God can't read it," as Congressman Trey Gowdy announced August 2016,” BleachBit’s website states.

The cloths with Clinton’s face are being sold on the company’s website for $3 and $5 if you’d like it to be signed by BleachBit’s founder Andrew Ziem.

“After you have smashed your BlackBerry, don't forget to wipe the fingerprints from your email server with this non-abrasive, soft microfiber Cloth or Something,” the site says. “Don't wait for a subpoena: order now!”

Plenty of people are. Ziem told Fox News he’s having a difficult time keeping up with demand.

“Sales have come in waves. There was a boost after the second presidential debate and a bigger wave after FBI Director James Comey reopened the investigation on Friday,” he told Fox News.

“A few days ago I had just reordered the cloths from the printer and was mostly keeping up with signing them, but yesterday sales went through the roof. I panicked as I saw them selling out so fast because I do not like back orders, and I don't know how I am going to sign them all,” he added.
