Scrub Daddy is available in thousands of stores and can also be ordered online.

One of the simplest products that has appeared on the show, the Squatty Potty has become a popular addition to bathrooms across America. Western style toilets are designed to be as hygienic and comfortable as possible, unfortunately the sitting position required to use them is not optimal for the job at hand. Squatting, rather than sitting, is more healthy since this posture allows the Puborectalis muscle that wraps around your colon to relax. The Squatty Potty stool lets you enjoy the comfort and convenience of a western sit-down toilet while achieving the best body position for your health.
