Thank goodness for the Tide pen

Insert LeAnn Rimes song "How do I live without you?"

Seriously what did I do before this magic pen? I used to use the Shout wipes, but it just wet the problem area bringing more attention to the spot. Granted the Tide to Go pen doesn't always get eveything I drop on me out, but it definitely helps in most cases. Almost daily I get something on me or knock over my drink. I'm not clutsy per se, but so overly enthusiastic that things tend to fall in my wake or food slips on the way to my mouth. Well, whatever the reason, I seem to always be grabbing for the Tide to Go that I have in my desk drawer, or in my car, or the two pens that are in my home (they are by both of my sinks for easy water access for a full out war). I found the quicker you rub the better results, yes still talking about the stain remover.

According to their site: 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, which unfortuantely was today's culprit. A balsamic vinigerette straight to the pants. The poor jeans didn't know what hit them. Poor bastard.

Note: No, Tide is not one of my blog sponsors. However, Tide, If you'd like to approach me--my stains are all ears and my clothes would surely thank you ;)


  1. A true godsend. It actually worked on an oil stain for me. I only wore it once, it was charmeuse and I thought it was a goner. Tide pen to the rescue!

  2. I have Tide pens my desk, purse, car, kitchen drawer...I love those darn things! My mom actually puts a Tide To Go pen in my stocking every year!

  3. Yup, love them! Wish the lids stayed on better tho :)
