Flood Bros. Disposal presents The Skinny & Houli Show and this week we meet Dude Wipes inventor and founder Sean Riley. Sean and three of his childhood pals from the south side were just out of college, sharing an apartment, and out hitting the bars four nights a week and dining on late-nite, take out burritos and contemplating the universe while going through cases of toilet paper. That’s when they started contemplating Uranus and came up with the idea for Dude Wipes, a complimentary product to toilet paper! Eureka! Seven years later their “Dude Wipes” are now in over 12,000 total retail stores across the USA, including Walgreens, Jewel, Kroger, Meiers, Target, Safeway, and they just closed a deal with Walmart putting Dude Wipes in 4, 400 stores across the country! They’re wiping millions of butts and have developed three new flagship products, The Dude Shower, Dude Face Wipes, and Dude Powder. In 2015 they appeared on ABC’s hit show “Shark Tank” and scored a deal with financier Mark Cuban for $300,000 in exchange for a stake in their company.  Sean tells us his story with humor and humility as he takes on the journey started back at St. Michael’s in Orland Park when he was a young janitor and playing sports with his buddies. It’s the Irish American dream and Sean is a great spokesman for the Dude brand with some great stories of Shark Tank and his journey to success.
