Counerfeits on in 2020

Since 2021, Scrubba wash bags sold on Amazon are labelled at our factory with Transparency stickers.  These stickers are scanned and matched to Amazon Transparency database to verify they are genuine Scrubba wash bags.  Any counterfeits won't be allowed in Amazon warehouses or sold on Amazon.

In 2020, before we activated Transparency labelling, some counterfeit Scrubba wash bags were sold on under the account of "Steve Butler Zr".  These counterfeit Scrubba wash bags are readily identifiable by the type of valve used and inferior inner washboard. 

Measures are being take to enforce our intellectual property rights against Steve Butler Zr.
