Grip Clean, the all-natural industrial hand soap to remove grease, was invented by X-Games biker Bryce Hudson. The key ingredient of Grip Clean is dirt. That’s right; dirt removes heavy grease and exfoliates skin. The 25-year-old pitched his business on Shark Tank in 2015. He was seeking $85,000 in exchange for 20 percent equity. Hudson accepted Lori Greiner’s offer of $85,000 in exchange for 35 percent.
Since Shark Tank, Grip Clean has expanded its product line to include a half-gallon counter top jug and a wall mounted dispenser that hold a gallon of Grip Clean ($89.99). In October 2016, Grip Clean landed a partnership with Cycle Gear, the nation’s largest retailer of motorcycle apparel, parts and accessories, and in February 2017, Hudson announced a partnership with Advance Auto Parts (and CarQuest), the nation’s largest automotive parts and accessories retailer.
