CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Chicago-based Dude Wipes, flushable wipes designed for guys, was pitched by its founders on “Shark Tank” back in 2015. 

After making their case, they ended up closing a deal with billionaire Mark Cuban -- $300,000 for 25 percent equity. 

Since then, Dude Wipes has rapidly expanded its distribution network and, starting in June, the product will be available in more than 4,000 Walmart stores across the U.S.

"We got a test at the end of last year in 1,000 stores. The customers resonated well with the product," said Dude Wipes co-founder and CEO, Sean Riley. 

"In June, we are rolling out nationwide into every Walmart's toilet paper aisle, which is about 4,400 stores. You can get Dude Wipes across the country now.”
