A Quick Message To The Parents!
Slam It In The Bag is a product that REALLY WORKS.
We chose Kickstarter to help prove our product concept because it's a TRUSTED platform that millions of backers have used for almost 10 years.
As an athlete and a Dad....I can’t be more excited to share this with the world. Thank you for your support!

Eliminating Rapid Bacteria Growth is Our #1 Job!
The amount of gel inside one of our containers can be effective in an area up to 400 sq. ft, so imagine the power it has when you drop it inside of gym bag!
We wanted to prove the chemical free, all-natural bacteria destruction capabilities of Slam It In The Bag, so we ran the "Strawberry Test" several times under different conditions, in different containers, in varying temperatures, etc.
Test after test ended in the same unbelievable result...
The deodorizing gel of Slam It In The Bag keeps harmful bacteria at bay for weeks at a time!
Gym Bags = Bacteria Farms
How often does the inside of a gym bag REALLY get cleaned. Yeah, exactly...not very often.
All of the bacteria that builds up in a bag left uncleaned is what leads to harmful infections like:
- Athletes foot
With one easy to use, all natural deodorizing product, you can now cut down those risks and start living healthier. Simply, Slam It In The Bag!
Doctor Tested, Doctor Approved
Dr. Jennifer L. Jennings of Cardea Health Initiative has implemented the use of essential oils into her practice and patient care for years, so we asked her to shed some light on the health and wellness aspects of Slam It In The Bag.
Here is Dr. Jennings discussing its all-natural benefits:
Made in the USA from ALL NATURAL Australian Tea Tree Oil
We didn't take any shortcuts when sourcing the raw materials for this product. Australian Tea Tree Oil varies in quality and each of those has a different purpose.
We made it our mission to seek out only the highest quality tea tree oil in existence to make the Slam It In The Bag deodorizing gel. We also wanted to make it free of harmful chemicals!
We launched the Slam It In The Bag project on Kickstarter so we could prove our product concept and raise at least $10,000, the amount we need to get the first production run of S.I.T.B. deodorizing gels manufactured for backers and future retail partners. Any additional funds raised will go towards marketing the product and research and design costs.
To help us get there we wanted to introduce some dope reward options that you can see below and read about in more detail along the right hand side of the project.
PLEASE NOTE: Backers of the Seattle-based reward are responsible for any/all travel, lodging, and accommodations costs. Reward includes only what is expressly written.
About Nate Robinson x Scuffed Up:
Slam It In The Bag was created by Nate Robinson and the team at Scuffed Up, who got their start making shoe cleaning products, meeting and working with tons of athletes [from youth to professional] through our efforts in the sneaker community over the last year.
We began developing this all-natural product with the help of a local Buffalo, NY manufacturing company (so it's Made in the USA) and after months of testing, we landed on a perfect deodorizing solution. We also got the chance to see what really drives Nate; aiming to be an inspiration to all athletes, but most importantly his children.
We learned that Nate is a strong-hearted family man.
And as it turns out, all of his kids are athletes as well! During Nate’s recent trip to Buffalo, we visited a few different schools and community centers to educate kids and parents of the dangers than can come from something as simple as a dirty gym bag.
We had some fun too!
Let us help you eliminate odors and harmful bacteria.
We want to revolutionize the way our athletes stay clean. Not only do we want to destroy those nasty odors, but we want to reduce potential for bacterial related health risks that come along with those odors - while doing it naturally and without harmful chemicals!
We appreciate you backing our project and help us reach our goal to make the first production run of Slam It In The Bag, the all natural anti-microbial gym bag deodorizer.
Thank you for joining us on this journey to healthier living!

Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge was sourcing the absolute best raw materials. We spent a lot of time on this part of the process to ensure that it was done correctly. Awareness; is another hurdle that we face.
We know that bacterial infections are a problem, especially with athletes. We have finally created a simple, all natural aid in drastically reducing the spread of bacteria. Now, all we can do is continue sharing our message of cleanliness and health to as many athletes as we can reach.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
