Shark Tank The Scrubbie Update

the scrubbie update

  • Entrepreneurs: Matt Hosey, Jeff Dakin, and Tyler Kessler
  • Business: Universal cleaning attachment
  • Ask: $100,000 for 10% equity
  • Result: No deal
  • Shark: None

The trio, who refer to themselves as the “Side Hustle Homies,” brought their company and product, The Scrubbie, to Shark Tank Season 12. Jeff shares that he got the idea of adding a sponge to his sink sprayer when he was doing dishes one day, so he partnered with Matt and Tyler to make it happen.

The Scrubbie - Dish Scrubber Sponge Attachment

The Scrubbie universal cleaning attachment is a scrubbing brush, sink sprayer and sponge all in one! It easily attaches to any faucet, sprayer, or garden hose with two patented fastening mechanisms that are designed to fit on most pull-down faucets, kitchen sink sprayers, and garden hoses.

Their scrubbing sponges come in different levels of abrasiveness and can easily swapped out. Their starter pack sells for $14.99, and a replacement 3-pack of sponges sells for $9.99, which is sold using a subscription model.

Matt, Jeff, and Tyler shared that they took advantage of the 2019 and 2020 Wichita Women’s Fair to sell and also demonstrate their product. In 2019, their sales were $13,000 and in 2020, at the time of filming, they hadn’t made any additional sales.

Further, they say that their projected sales for 2020, will be around $320,000. Unfortunately, they’re only basing this estimated number on interest from companies that they met at the fair.

This is surely a red flag to the sharks, as their skepticism becomes obvious. In addition to this, The Scrubbie founders seem to make their case worse, by giving very vague answers to all the questions posed by the sharks.

Unfortunately for Jeff, Matt, and Tyler, the sharks don’t seem at all interested in The Scrubbie, despite their best efforts to get a deal.

Mark Cuban drops out first. He says the guys should have done better at the fair, and they didn’t, so he won’t be investing.

Lori Greiner, in particular, is very concerned that The Scrubbie is a copy of Scrub Daddy, one of her earlier investments. She also feels that they copied the Scrub Daddy font on their logo, so she is the next shark out.

Kevin O’Leary backs this up, asking Lori if she will sue The Scrubbie creators. She never responds to this question, and the guys defend their product.

They say their product is not at all like the Scrub Daddy, because The Scrubbie screws onto hose attachments. They also don’t see the similarity in the logo designs.

Next to go out is guest shark Daniel Lubetzky and Robert Herjavec. They both think that the guys aren’t hustling enough for their business, and are perhaps being too passive.

Last but not least, Kevin says he’s ultimately underwhelmed, so he is also out. With that, Matt, Jeff, and Tyler walk away from Shark Tank Season 12 without a deal for The Scrubbie.

Did they turn things around following Shark Tank? Keep reading The Scrubbie update to find out what happened next!

Despite not having secured a deal from the Shark Tank, The Scrubbie update has some good news. After appearing on the show, the trio experienced an influx in orders for their product and have continued to grow since their episode aired.

Additionally, the exposure from the show has also helped the trio land some interviews to help promote awareness and increase sales.

As far as purchasing The Scrubbie, the original version is available to be purchased on Amazon and an updated version of the sponge is available for pre-sale on The Scrubbie website.

It is unclear when the updated products will be shipped to customers. If we get more news for our The Scrubbie update, we will let you know!
