Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover was recommended to me by a friend as an extremely effective product. So, one day while I was eating one of my favourite penna pasta dishes at an Italian cafe in a local mall, I looked down to see tomato sauce on my white blouse. I had purchased and was carrying the pen for just such an occasion. Since, it states it will eliminate tomato juice, ketchup, barbeque sauce, grape juice, coffee, wine, tea and chocolate syrup I expected a positive result. The stain wasn't affected by this product at all. The instructions advise if the stain is stubborn keep pressing the tip gently and the liquid will eventually lift the stain. I am certain if I was still rubbing today without relief the stain would be intact and I originally missed my dainty little mouth three weeks ago.
I cannot recommend this product for stain removal. Since, I am a regular user of Tide, I was surprised at its poor quality. The Tide to Go stick was, definitely, a disappointment to me.
