Meet the dudes
We're just some DUDES who launched DUDE Wipes out of our apartment in Chicago. Our origin story isn’t like most companies. As friends we launched the company to have fun, make shit jokes, and kick ass. It’s been one crazy ride, and we have our loyal DUDE family to thank. Our mission is to keep having fun, build great products, and support you all any way we can.—THE DUDES
A long time ago...in an apartment in Chicago
At the time 95% of our diets consisted of burritos and beer, so conversations about your latest dump were plentiful. We started using baby wipes instead of toilet paper and our lives were forever changed. But there was one problem: there were no wipes for on-the-go deucing situations! Sensing a toilet bowl sized hole in the market, we founded DUDE Products. Our first product would be flushable single travel packets of DUDE Wipes. For the next 6 months we went to work with manufacturers to create the best wipe ever.
After months of testing, four pallets of glorious DUDE wipes arrived and we began selling them out of our spare bedroom. The journey to save the world one DUDE at a time had officially begun.
DUDE Nation asked for a larger pack of wipes for their bathrooms, and we delivered. The DUDE Wipes Crib Edition was born, a larger dispenser pack of flushable wipes for at home use.
On June 14, DUDE Wipes was the #3 Worldwide Trend on Twitter, after a successful marketing stunt with MMA fighter Tyron Woodley, putting our logo on the butt of his trunks. According to Fox Sports, "Dude Wipes was one of the big winners of an otherwise lackluster card."
In January of 2014, DUDE Wipes was featured on Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory on MTV. During the Episode, Rob and Christopher 'Big Black' Boykin dressed up in poop costumes and referred to themselves as 'Plip' & 'Plop'. The theme of the episode was the 'Clean Hole Alliance' promoting DUDE Wipes as a better way to wipe, rather than toilet paper.
Later that year we appeared on Season 7, Episode 4 of the Shark Tank. After some dramatic negotiations, Mark Cuban infamously swooped in and made an investment in DUDE Products, becoming a member of the DUDE family.
