Entrepreneurs Jeff Dakin, Tyler Kessler and Matt Hosey took their company, The Scrubbie, and its products to the Sharks on ABC’s “Shark Tank” to see if they could get a deal from one of the investors.
According to the episode synopsis, “A trio of entrepreneurs from Wichita, Kansas, put a little elbow grease into their presentation when they introduce their innovative cleaning tool to the Sharks.”
The entrepreneurs were able to pitch their products to Sharks Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and guest Shark Daniel Lubetzky.

The Scrubbie can also be screwed onto a garden hose for all your outdoor scrubbing needs.
2. The Scrubbie Claims to Save Water & Time

3. The Inventor Has More Ideas for Products
In an interview with Kansas.com, Dakin has been interested in inventing products for most of his life, and he is still passionate about inventions.
He told Kansas.com that he has over 100 ideas for different inventions written down, but he will not be pursuing some of them because they would be too expensive to create.
His co-founder, Tyler Kessler, told the outlet that Dakin has “too many million-dollar ideas not to have a million dollars.”
