Suds2Go Portable Handwasher Update | Shark Tank Season 12

Keeping hands clean on the go can be a problem. Hand sanitizer stings, wipes dry out, and public restrooms can be gross. Because of this, husband and wife duo, Cindy and Gabe Trevizo, have created a portable hand washing unit to solve this problem. Will they scrub up a clean deal on Shark Tank Season 12? Find out in our Suds2Go update!

If you’re short on time, here’s a quick overview of what happened to Suds2Go after Shark Tank!

Suds2Go appeared on Shark Tank Season 12 and left with a deal from Robert Herjavec for $200,000 for 15% equity. In terms of a Suds2Go update, the company has continued to grow since Shark Tank and has released new products.

Shark Tank Suds2Go Update

  • Entrepreneurs: Cindy and Gabe Trevizo
  • Business: Portable handwashing device
  • Ask: $200,000 for 10% equity
  • Result: $200,000 for 15% equity
  • Shark: Robert Herjavec

Suds2Go was born out of Cindy and Gabe’s desire to make handwashing more accessible to everyone. The patent-pending product allows users to carry foam soap and a small amount of water that they can use to wash their hands thoroughly on the go, without the need for running water.

The product is reusable, refillable, and also comes in a smaller and more affordable cap version that connects to disposable water bottles.

Before coming to Shark Tank, the couple took to Kickstarter to fund their invention in 2018. Soon enough, they had a booming business in their hands.

To no one’s surprise, Suds2Go has been a huge hit so far. According to Cindy and Gabe, the company has $392,000 worth of sales in just a couple of months since they launched their website.

However, this created an entirely new problem for them — distribution and logistics.

A 2-pack of the attachment for disposable water bottles sells for $10.99, costing $2.25 to make. Their larger model sells for $36 and costs $7 to produce.

Daymond John asked the couple to share their backstory, and Gabe said they were 8th-grade sweethearts. In their many years together, they’ve been through a lot, including struggling through Gabe’s job loss.

That’s when the couple worked together doing odd jobs, just to make ends meet, and not letting anything stand in the way of their dreams.

At this point in the pitch, Kevin O’Leary bows out because he previously invested in Blueland, which he feels is a direct competitor.

That’s when Mark Cuban chimes in, saying that there’s too much competition in the market for him to invest. For that reason, he’s also out.

Robert Herjavec then goes out for the same reason, but Daymond John swoops in to offer $200,000 for 22.5% equity. Then, Lori Greiner goes out, as she feels the offer from Daymond is a good one.

Before long, Robert quickly comes back in, putting his offer of $200,000 for 15% equity on the table. Moved by the couple’s story, he can’t help but relate to it.

Because the two wanted to preserve as much equity in Suds2Go as possible, they ended up accepting Robert’s offer. Keep reading our Suds2Go update to find out what happened next!

In regard to a Suds2Go update, we have great news to share! The company is still in business and in more demand than ever.

Further, their products have received a lot of positive press since Shark Tank and have been featured in publications like Better Homes and Gardens.

Additionally, several options for the products and accessories are available on the Suds2Go website and on Amazon.

But that’s not all! The company gives back to the community too.

Perhaps inspired by Gabe and Cindy’s own financial struggles, they promise to give a cap to an organization that helps food-insecure and displaced children, for every bottle sold.

We love to hear when Shark Tank success leads to giving back! If we get more news on a Suds2Go update, we will let you know!
