It is a common memory for most of us: a mother, pre-treating stains on the knees of our pants, scrubbing at the material with a toothbrush, or the scolding remark, “Your clothes are not napkins.” Even as adults, we’ve all lost a favorite, treasured item to a forgotten spill after it’s been through the washer and dryer. What this means is that even though OxiClean is an oxygen-based stain remover and should work best on stains caused by coffee and wine (tannins), it successfully broke down dyes and the complex chocolate spread stain with protein and oil, as well. Use your Tide to Go Pen until it runs out of solution. Continue to use the same Tide to Go Pen for fresh stain removal until it runs out of solution. You can use the standard Tide to Go Pen size of 10 ml (0.338 fl oz.) for about 10-20 uses. [7] X Research source

Wait and reapply as necessary. Wait several minutes for the fabric to dry to determine the success of the stain removal. Repeat the process of releasing the solution and rubbing with the pen tip if the stain is still very visible. Dry the garment carefully. Follow the care instructions for your clothing after washing it, taking care not to apply heat from a dryer or iron until the stain is out. Hang, lay flat, or machine dry as instructed. Look for the care tag along a collar, waist, or side seam of any garment. If you no longer have one, look for the fabric content. Most common natural and synthetic fabrics like cotton or polyester can be machine washed. [5] X Research source Delicate fabrics like silk and cashmere, and items with beaded or embroidered detail, usually require hand washing or dry cleaning. Stains are chemical reactions. Rather than resting on top of clothing and other fabrics, food, liquids, and countless substances that stain actually bind to the surface of material fibers. The best way to remove this excess is typically to lay an absorbent paper towel or napkin directly onto the stain, then lift straight up. Or, scoop the excess off with a spoon or knife. Avoid rubbing or swiping at the stain, which could make it spread and worsen.Once the Tide to Go cleaning solution is applied, it has a faint chemical scent. Even when the pen's liquid was applied to the clothes I was wearing, the smell wasn’t overly strong or bothersome. Powerful solution breaks stains down; microfiber pad lifts and absorbs them; Doesn't contain bleach The highest-rated products are advertised to work on the widest variety of stains: tannins, oils, proteins, and dyes. This is evident in the names of many of the products; for example, “oxy” stands for oxygen-based, and “enzyme” represents protein stain fighters.

We're sorry you had that experience. The Tide To Go Pen works best on fresh stains to keep them from setting. To use your pen follow these steps: In addition to being colorfast, make sure that the fabric to be treated is not dry clean only. Silk, velvet, wool, leather, taffeta, and other delicate fabrics might not react well to the water in the stain remover, shrinking or changing texture along with the stain treatment. Why you should use a stain remover Rub the tip gently across the stain to remove it. If necessary, press the tip again to add more liquid and continue rubbing gently. For my next round of testing, I purposely soiled another white t-shirt with some common staining agents: lip gloss, canola oil, and tomato juice. I applied the Tide pen, waited a few hours, and laundered the t-shirt as normal on a warm cycle. My results were fairly successful. The canola oil and tomato juice were gone, but the lip gloss was still visible. I used the pen on another shirt that had collected splatters of ketchup and mustard. The pen had little to no effect on the mustard, but the ketchup stains faded significantly. Use a dry and clean cloth, napkin, or towel to gently blot at the fabric. There may be some visible residue of the solution after it’s dry, which will go away when you wash it later.The garment should be washed as directed on the care tag using a laundry detergent. Pay attention to the care tips for the fabric and style of your specific item. Hand wash, machine wash, or dry clean as directed. Spending less time treating the fabric before washing proved to be a huge problem in the results of this study, in that none of the products besides OxiClean removed a stain entirely in one treatment, regardless of whether they were fresh or set-in. For the fresh stains, all products besides OxiClean left behind a very light or partial stain, and for the set-in stains, the remnants were darker depending on the product. Works well on tomato juice, ketchup, BBQ sauce, grape juice, coffee, wine, tea, chocolate syrup, and more
