On January 14, 2018, I purchased a 2-ounce spray bottle of DetraPel. It’s a product that you apply to white athletic shoes that keeps them white.

I learned about the product from Shark Tank. The founders pitched the product to the sharks and Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks agreed to go into business with DetraPel’s founders.

After watching the episode, I went to the Nike outlet store at the Hagerstown Prime Outlets and bought a pair of white on white Jordan 1 shoes I had my eyes on, but passed on because I knew I would have zero success keeping them stain-free.  With DetraPel, I would be able to keep them looking like they looked when I first bought them.

As soon as I got home with my new shoes, I found the DetraPel website and ordered the spray bottle. It’s been 53 days since I paid DetraPel $19.06 on PayPal and I still haven’t received it.

I don’t understand why it’s taking so long to get my bottle of DetraPel. Supposedly they received funding from Mark Cuban, so they should have the ability to fulfill orders. Unless of course Shark Tank is a fraud and when one of the sharks agrees to partner up with an entrepreneur, it’s just a lie.

I don’t know if this is the case. What I do know is that I have a pair of shoes I cannot wear because I don’t want them to get any stains.

I don’t care what your business is. I don’t care if you’ve been on Shark Tank or not. I don’t care what you’re selling. If you can’t deliver the product you’re selling, you shouldn’t be in business. This is one of the reasons “entrepreneurs” have such a poor reputation.
