Tony Gauthier of Oakland, California invented Spretz Me Spray, an all-natural breath and hand freshener. You can spray it into your mouth (it comes in cinnamon or peppermint flavor) and you can spray it on your hands to eliminate odors. Sprëtz users are foodies, coffee drinkers, smokers (cigarettes, cigars, cannabis), people with sweaty and clammy hands, and those who occasionally suffer from bad breath. As Spretz explains on the website, “chewing gum is tacky and besides gum doesn’t removes odors from your hands.” The website also warns that the product is not a substitute for good hygiene – washing your hands or brushing your teeth.
Gauthier — with his business partners Wesley Osaze and Scott Hoag — will pitch Spretz on Shark Tank on January 8 (9pm, ABC). Spretz isn’t available yet but you can preorder a 3-pack for $7.99 using the SHARK promo code. The pack will sell for $9.99. P.S. Each Spretz bottle produces about 70 Spretzes (pronounced “Spritzes”).
