This is Tide to Go instant stain remover:I started using it soon after it first came out because I get stains on my clothing all too often. (Usually food. This may have something to do with the fact that I snack almost constantly). It was pretty much love-at-first-stain-removal.
I decided to write about Tide to Go as a sort of public service announcement, just in case you haven't tried it before. I endorse it wholeheartedly. (Note that this is not a paid endorsement; I think Proctor & Gamble would choose a blog with a bit more traffic.) It should have a place in your life. It is amazing!
The package cautions that it "Does not work well on: Grease, Blood, Ink." For once, this is a product that under-promises and over-delivers. I have found that it works quite well on all of those things. It's the only stain remover I've found that eliminates ball point pen marks from fabric.
I keep a Tide to Go in my desk drawer at work, and I used it just yesterday to (very successfully) get chocolate ice cream out of my capri pants. It works so well that I use it at home, too, often instead of my full-sized bottle of stain remover. It must contain some sort of revolutionary solvent because stains seem to just disappear as you saturate them with the Tide to Go liquid and then dab them with the adsorbent applicator.
Lest you hesitate to try Tide to Go based on my opinion alone, you should know that P&G has an entire website devoted to this product. Customers leave personal testimonials about how Tide to Go has saved their date/wedding/important business meeting; these tales often seem to involve white clothing and either berries or red wine. Amusingly enough, you can sift through the stories using search terms such as the article of clothing and type of stain involved.
P&G also apparently hosted a make-your-own commercial contest on You Tube. The commercials feature talking stains and the slogan "Silence the stain." In my favorite one, a homely hillbilly, Ned, who's about to go courtin' a girl is plagued by a derisive barbecue stain on his shirt that laughs at him and scoffs at his chances of gettin' the girl. Tide to Go not only banishes the stain but also suddenly gives him movie star looks. You can also audition to be the talking stain. (Really. Go check it out.) Tide to Go has an ardent fan base!
P&G describes Tide to Go as a "portable stain-removing pen." "Magic wand" would also be accurate.
