Surely, you’ve seen the Kelly Ripa commercials by now? The TIDE TO GO PEN is the answer to any stain prone person’s prayers. This inexpensive product (should be less than $3.00 ) is definitely a life saver.
I don’t know about the rest of you out there, but it seems like every time I wear something ”I can NOT stain” I drop something on it, or someone else drops something on it…. Often times, I find myself wondering ” Ok, how do I cover this up… or do I just ignore it…” TIDE TO GO is your answer! This compact pen is small enough to fit in any purse or clutch, and boy does it work wonders.
The packaging is 100% accurate when it states that the pen can lift the following stains: ketchup, wine, coffee, tee, BBQ sauce, grape juice and even chocolate syrup. One thing you have to keep in mind is that the pen works most effectively on new, fresh stains.
How do you use the pen? It’s super easy!
1. Got a stain? Wipe it down with a dry cloth, removing as much as you can.
2. Whip out the TIDE TO GO pen and start blotting the stained area. By blotting, I mean press down on the pen a few times to make sure the pen is releasing the stain remover.
3.Once the stain is covered with the solution, use the pen and rub the stained area…. as if you were writing on your garment.
4.Wipe off excess solution
5. NO MORE STAIN!
The great thing about the TIDE TO GO pen is that it doesn’t soak the whole area that was stained. Older portable stain removers – individual sheets- tend to soak the whole stained area, often attracting more attention to the stain. This pen targets the actual stain and gets the job done…. quickly.
As mentioned above, the TIDE TO GO PEN states that it works on fresh stain. However, I thought I’d give it a try on an older stain. I found a shirt that had day old pizza sauce splotches on it. I used the TIDE TO GO PEN on the stains and voila … the day old stains were gone when the shirt dried!
I highly recommend this item to those of you who are stain prone, for those of you who have stain prone children, spouses or friends…. and for anyone that wants to maintain a sharp, composed look when out in public…. TIDE TO GO PEN may not take care of everything, but if sure beats those stains!
