Tide To GoOver the long holiday weekend, I decided on new category for my blogs. Must Haves. Those are the things that make life easier for me and absolutely must have it.
So my first must have is Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover Sticks. Wow. What a great product. I was sitting with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law one day (forgot where) and they were talking about how great this product was. How great could this product really be? I had heard about the product already but I wasn't that impressed with Clorox bleach pens. I figured that Tide to Go was pretty much in the same category so ... I hadn't tried it yet.
Well, on Sunday, I was wearing white pants. White is the hot color for this summer. I was originally nervous about buying white pants. I mean, come on, I had two little boys who liked to use me as a human napkin. But I succumbed to fashion calling (I'm not that trendy but I like to have a couple of pieces that are in fashion to make sure I don't look like I'm stuck in the 90's) and bought the white pants.
Of course, an hour into the family BBQ on Sunday I got something brownish/red (i assume BBQ sauce) on my white pants. My immediate reaction was, "Damn, I knew I shouldn't wear white around the kids." Then I remembered that it was the perfect opportunity to try the Tide to Go stick (No, I not one of the those annoying people that always turn a negative into a positive). I put the Tide to go stick on my pants ... 10 minutes later, my pants were dry and the stain was gone. I 'm sold. It's on my grocery list for this week.
The Tide website says that Tide to Go works well on the following stains:
| || || || Tomato Juice |
| || || || Ketchup |
| || || || BBQ Sauce |
| || || || Grape Juice |
| || || || Coffee |
| || || || Wine |
| || || || Tea |
| || || || Chocolate Syrup |
It does not work well on greasy stains.
These are the instructions for Tide to Go:
1. Remove excess residue from stain.
2. Press the Tide to Go tip onto the stain several times to release some stain remover solution onto the stain.
3. Rub tip gently across the stain to remove it. When necessary, add more liquid and continue rubbing gently.
My only problem is that those sticks are so darn small. And my kids' stains are so darn big. I should buy stock in Tide. Anway, I've already purchased it and its in my purse ready to use. You should try it. You'll love it. (If you can't go to the store and get it, you can always click here
to buy it.)
