Get ready “Shark Tank” fans. On October 8, the 13th season of the popular Emmy-winning reality show premieres on ABC. While long-standing sharks Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec and Kevin O’Leary will all occupy the Tank this season, the network has also announced four new Sharks guests.
Actor and comedian, Kevin Hart; CEO and Co-Founder of Good American, Emma Grede; BBC “Dragon’s Den” star Peter Jones; and Nextdoor co-founder Nirav Tolia will all be entering the waters this season. To honor the show’s 13th season premiere, GOBankingRates put together a list of six popular “Shark Tank” products that we can’t live without, including details on costs and where to get them.

Scrub Daddy, the original product of the company backed by Shark Lori Grenier, is now one of 49 products, which are sold in more than 30,000 outlets. Part of the popularity of Scrub Daddy is how fun it is to clean up. The company’s three-pack smiley sponges feature a different color for each sponge, allowing you to color-code your cleaning tasks. But that’s not all, sponges are versatile, becoming firm in cold water for a deep scrub and softer in warm water for lighter cleaning applications. Plus, these cuties are odor, scratch, and dishwasher resistant. You’ll pay $ 9.99 for a set of three on Amazon, which seems like a better deal than what you’ll find on the Scrub Daddy website.
Savvy Shark Lori Grenier has also invested in Phone Soap, which is an all-in-one UV disinfectant and phone charger. She wasn’t sure how much this product would mean once the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. It kills 99.9% of germs within minutes, making it a great tool to have on standby while you’re at work. Find Phone Soap 3 for $ 79.95 on Amazon or the company’s website.
While you might think you can live without a certain brand of socks, you probably won’t want to do that once you know about Bombas’ mission. After Bombas co-founders David Heath and Randy Goldberg discovered that socks were the most requested item in homeless shelters, they decided that every time they sold a pair of socks, they would give a pair to someone in need. Shark Daymond John was impressed with the social conscience of the co-founders and their willingness to do something, so he invested.
The company sells socks for men, women and children in different lengths, patterns and colors. Although you can find them on Amazon, you can get 20% off your first order if you buy direct from the Bombas site.

Lori Grenier made another incredible deal when she “joined the bowel movement” and invested in Squatty Potty, a bathroom stool clinically proven to reduce both fatigue and toilet time. The company has sold over 5 million to date. You can get the original Squatty Potty for $ 24.99 from the company’s website or from Amazon. Or you can opt for one of the many other models available, including one made of bamboo or teak or with features like a night light or the ability to fold up.
Another famous investment from Grenier is Drop Stop, also known as space fillers for car seats. This popular product keeps fast food crumbs, coins, and credit cards from succumbing to one of the hardest to reach places in your car – between the front seats. Not only that, but these space fillers also help promote safer driving – 10 major police departments have them installed in their vehicles. The cost is $ 24.99 for two Drop Stops – one for the driver’s side and one for the passenger. Avoid shipping and handling charges when buying from Amazon.

Bala bracelets are designed to be worn as a weight on the wrist or ankle, but they appear to be elegant bracelets. When it was first featured on “Shark Tank,” guest Shark Maria Sharpova immediately became interested in the product due to the use of wrist weights to rehabilitate her shoulder. She teamed up with billionaire Mark Cuban to offer the company’s co-founders an investment of $ 900,000 for a 30% stake in the company.
Bala bracelets cost $ 49 for a set of two 1 pound bracelets and $ 65 for a set of two 2 pound bracelets in your choice of colors like charcoal, cherry, neon rainbow, sky blue or pink blade. You can buy from Amazon or from Bala’s website.
