Guide Review - Tide To Go Instant Stain Remover

We have tons of stain removal solutions for when we are at home. We have pre-treaters, enzyme soaks, bleaches, and stain sticks, but what happens when we're away from home. If you're clumsy like me, you can walk around with dribbles all over your shirt. Tide To Go is determined to rescue us from our mishaps.

The Tide To Go pen is easily concealed in a purse or briefcase and easy to use. My children made sure I had ample test-worthy spots to try and remove. We experimented with ketchup, mustard, juice, jelly, syrup, cheese sauce, chili, chocolate milk, and jello. Tide To Go made a huge difference, so much so that the kids now ask for my "magic pen" when an unplanned stain happens.

Tide To Go cemented its importance for me when the corner of my white shirt was dipped in fruit punch just as my family was leaving for church. I was able to remove the stain at a long red light on the drive and still arrive on time. Tide To Go is perfect for busy people on the run, who like to look as clean as they did when they first stepped out of their door.

Tide to go is available in single packs, 3-packs, and 5 packs, and has a suggested price of $2.99, $6.99, and $8.99 respectively.

MAKES STAINS WORSE!, Member norrissammy

I got some dirt on my brand new white jeans that cost me a good amount of money, I decided to give the tide pen a try. I read the directions and did EXACTLY what it said to do and now the dirt stain is still there and there is a HUGE yellow stain around the dirt stain. I've done everything to try and get the yellow out with no success. If someone can please give me some suggestions on how to get the yellow out, I would appreciate it. If you plan on using this on a white fabric, I would not, It will ruin it.
