Tide To Go Pen Review - It's My Best Stain Removing Friend
(East Providence, RI, USA)
Lin has provided a Tide To Go pen review.
My favorite laundry stain remover of all time is the Tide To Go Stain Pen.
I used to only use Shout on all my stains, because it was simply what I knew. But one day I had spilled some mustard on my white denim capris at a BBQ, and my friend let me use his Tide Pen. Once I saw how great it worked, I started using it as a pre-wash stain remover.
I am constantly spilling food and drinks on myself. Anytime I eat or drink anything, it seems like I’m getting at least one drop of it on me. So I need a powerful stain fighter.
Not only has the Tide To Go Pen removed stains on the spot for me (I keep one in my purse at all times now) it also gets rid of stains prior to washing.
Sometimes my stains are large enough that I need to just take off the item of clothing for washing. The Tide pen gets rid of the stains better than any other pre-wash stain remover I’ve ever used.
It doesn’t have much of a smell, which is great for when I need it on the go. It also doesn’t do any damage to clothing.
I have never used it on something delicate like silk or rayon, but as for sturdy materials like cotton or polyester, it doesn’t affect the fabric. Even when I use it in abundance, my clothing stays intact.
I highly recommend using the Tide To Go Pen for a quick fix or for use prior to washing any clothing that’s been stained.
Thanks for your Tide To Go Pen review. I too seem to get food on me all the time. My husband jokes I'm worse than the kids!
I like the idea of the pen, since you can carry it around in your purse. I know they have both a regular size pen now, and also a "mini" Tide To Go pen you can use.
There are also quite a number of other fans of this product too, as you can see from some of the Tweets I've found when doing some research into all the things the Tide To Go Pen can be used for, for stain removal.

Kay has shared this tip of how she's used the Tide To Go pen successfully in her home, for a use I wouldn't normally think of.
The Tide to Go pen works on mattress stains.
We have a practically brand new plush pillowtop mattress. We have to return it to the store, and the store will take it back if it has no stains, no holes, etc... Well, of course we noticed a couple of small yellowish stains near the top side seams, upper middle and bottom (foot area) of our mattress. These are not giant stains that had spread out much--one was marble sized and the others sized like a silver dollar pancake size.
We have two small dogs and two little boys, so we are pretty sure it's due to the dogs and/or the boys.
Anyway, we used our Tide To Go pen and the stains began to fade right away, and then were completely gone!
My tip is to begin on the stain from the outside, rubbing inward with the Tide pen. Kind of pick up the top layer of fabric with your fingertips and rub on that, hence not wetting the underside so much. Just gently rub the stain with the pen and let it air dry. Love that Tide To Go!
NOTE: we were afraid to use the heat of a blowdryer on the areas we had used the pen on for fear of setting in the wet liquid from the pen and thus reactivating a stain somehow, so we turned on our ceiling fan and left it to dry.
Thanks Kay for sharing how you use this product to remove stains from your mattress. I would never have thought of that on my own!
In addition, there are lots of other ways to use the Tide pen for stain removal. I've collected the uses already shared here, but I would love to hear even more from other readers. You can share your own uses for this product here.
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
