A husband and wife from Milltown, New Jersey, think they can smell success as they pitch their product designed to keep garments safe from bacteria and odor, while an entrepreneur from Portland, Oregon, tries to convince the Sharks he's brought blankets into the 21st century.
Touch Up Cup
A few years back Carson was doing some touch-up painting with his Dad around the house. They went to open just a few gallon cans when they realized the RUST, CLUMPS, and SMELL. They quickly realized that their expensive paint had gone BAD! They looked at each other and said "There has to be a better way". That's when Carson invented the Touch Up Cup for paint! They incorporated a stainless-steel mixing ball for easy mixing - Just Shake N' Paint BABY! This ingenious invention keeps your paint fresh for over 10 years!

As a US Army Veteran Police Officer, I noticed that my wife, who is a nurse, and I had the same post-shift routine - we would come home and remove our uniform / scrubs and shoes before entering our home. In fact, it was a rule in our household to practice this. After searching extensively for a safe product that could be used to clean and freshen our garments on-the-go, I realized no product existed. I decided to create GarmaGuard™ to help protect those in the same situation as ourselves, as well as anyone who would like to clean clothing and fabric and eliminate odor causing bacteria from their clothing, shoes, uniforms and more instantly, safely and easily!

Additionally, we offset our entire carbon footprint every year and donate 1% of all sales to environmental causes.
