Americans can get free money from $9million ‘dude’ settlement – see if you’re eligible

USERS of disposable wipes sold in stores like Walmart could get free money thanks to a $9 million settlement.

The settlement came after customers said men’s hygiene company Dude Products falsely advertised its body wipes as flushable.

The company denies any wrongdoing but agreed to a settlement in a case involving consumers who purchased the product over an eight-year period.

The class action plaintiffs claim the wipes are not flushable and could damage plumbing – a real problem for a company looking to replace toilet paper.

The company, which makes scented tissues for men, is known for its appearances on the reality TV show Shark Tank in 2015 and 2017.

How to request your cash

According to Top Class Actions, anyone who purchased Dude’s “flushable” wipes between February 5, 2015 and August 8, 2023 can claim free cash.

Proof of purchase is not required.

However, time is limited. Claims must be submitted by November 11, 2023.

Consumers who submit valid claims with proof of purchase will receive $20, while consumers without proof of purchase will receive $2.50.

Anyone who would like to file a lawsuit can register via the settlement website.

The guy denies wrongdoing

While the plaintiffs claim the wipes could damage plumbing, Dude Products claims there was no wrongdoing.

The company states on its website that the products have passed an industry test for flushability.

Dude Wipes are made from “short, plant-based fibers that dissolve in water, similar to toilet paper,” the company said.

The company still advertises its wipes as flushable.

“Instead of throwing in the towel (or rather the wipe), we’re on a mission to revolutionize the personal care industry with a wipe that’s kind to your butt, your plumbing system and the environment,” the company said in June 2023.


Dude Products isn’t the only company to settle a false advertising class action lawsuit.

Fruit giant Dole agreed to a $4.3 million settlement after customers complained that fruit was stored in “100 percent juice.”

Dole denied any wrongdoing in the case.

The company will pay customers who apply before September 25 between $9 and $18.

Some other ongoing settlements offer higher payouts. Life insurance company Ethos Technologies will pay $1 million after a security breach exposed consumer data.

Customers who submit their application by December 20, 2023 can receive up to $5,200.
