FAQ

Q: What is Tide to Go?
A: Tide to Go is a portable stain removing pen from Tide that instantly removes many fresh food and drink stains.

Q: Does Tide to Go work on all stains?
A: No. Tide to Go is designed specifically for removing fresh food and drink stains.

Q: Tide to Go didn't work well on my coffee stain - why not?
A: If used properly, Tide to Go performs very well on coffee stains. It is important to adhere to the instructions.
We also encourage consumers to reapply Tide to Go as necessary with certain stains. However, no product can promise to remove every stain under every condition, and so we're making sure that consumers understand exactly what Tide to Go is for and how to use it.

It really works!

I was skeptical how a small pen could help get stains out completely, but I'm amazed by how well it worked.

This Tide to go stain remover pen is awesome!

This Tide to Go stain remover pen is super handy. It fits perfect in your purse or travel bag so you are covered if you happen to get something on your clothes. It is easy to use you just press down on the tip to release the fluid that helps to penetrate and remove the stain. I would highly recommend it.

Good product

I use Tide to Go frequently. It works very well. My problem is with the tube (stops a 5 star rating). The lid comes off frequently in my purse and it dries out. I wish the lid stayed on.

The tip fell off so pen was useless

A greasy spill on a restaurant seat made a large stain on my back pant leg. I grabbed the pen & when I took the cap off, the pen tip dropped to the floor, so the pen was useless. Very disappointed.

Tide Response From Tide 04/14/2016

We always want our products to reach you in the very best condition, and we’re sorry this hasn’t been the case recently, Trixie. This may have happened because the cap was on too tight, however we’re working on finding the right balance between too tight and too loose. So that we can help you further, please give us a call at 800-879-8433.

Increased the size of a stain

I got a small coffee stain on my white patterned dress shirt. The size of the stain increased after using the product. This product effectively did the opposite of what it was supposed to do.

Left yellow spots on my son's brand new shoes.

Paid $70 for some new, white Vans, just to have the Tide to Go ruin them. Not happy, at all.

Tide Consumer Relations 03/31/2016

Hi I can definitely understand your frustration and I'm sorry to hear this happened. Below are some tips for removing a yellow spot from fabric. You will want to contact the manufacturer of the shoes before trying this method to make sure it's safe for the shoes. 1. Using a plactic bucket, create a soak solution by adding 1/2 use Tide per gallon of warm water. Allow the item to soak for up to 30 minutes, weighting the item with a white towel to keep it totally submerged. 2. Wash in warmest water setting with 1 use of Tide. 3. If stain remains, pretreat using Tide Liquid (pour Tide on to cover stain and let set for 20 minutes). Then, rewash in warm water with 1 use of Tide before drying. Hope this information helps. Feel free to reach out to us at 1-800-879-8433 for further assistance. Pattie Tide Team
