Inventor's Story | Cyndi Bray | Bye Balled-Up Sheets

Cyndi Bray invented Wad-Free® to help laundry doers everywhere fight the battle against the dreaded sheet wad. After commiserating with friends over the constant problem of sheets balling-up, throwing the washing machine off-balance, and requiring several goes through the dryer to actually dry, Cyndi tasked herself with solving this age-old wasteful and annoying problem. With no background in engineering, product development, or manufacturing, Cyndi taught herself a modeling computer-aided design program to create the first-ever Wad Preventer™ for the washing machine and the dryer. She created different versions, sharing prototypes with family, friends, and strangers until she honed in on the perfect solution.

Cyndi launched Wad-Free for Bed Sheets in June of 2020—in the middle of a pandemic—and was featured on ABC's “Shark Tank” the following year. Given Kevin O’Leary’s passion for saving consumers money and energy, it’s no surprise that Mr. Wonderful started a Shark fight to secure the deal with Wad-Free! 

Now she’s done it again with not one, but two laundry game-changing laundry products! Wad-Free® for Blankets & Duvet Covers joins the original Wad-Free® for Bed Sheets to get all your bedding out of a wad!™  🧺

And the rest is laundry history!
