Maker Story

Squeaky Clean

This children’s hand scrubber was inspired by the tools surgeons use to wash up. It was designed by a mom determined to fight back against her children’s constant colds.

Scrub Bugs are, firstly, adorable. The sweet, buggy design will appeal to little kids. The soft sponge and bristles combination gets hands cleaner than using just soap and water, because Scrub Bugs have an innovative hand washing surface. It creates a better lather and a gentle yet targeted friction while scrubbing that gets into skin's contours and grooves. The shape is ergonomic to fit little hands, and it stands up on its end to air dry—which is cleaner than sitting on the counter.

Founder Kelly Stewart had had enough with her kids continually battling colds and other illnesses, and she knew that stopping them from touching potentially icky things wasn’t a solid plan of attack. So she created a playful method to make them better hand washers. Cleaner hands can make for healthier kids, which will in turn make everyone happier.
