A: No. Tide to Go is designed specifically for removing fresh food and drink stains.

A: If used properly, Tide to Go performs very well on coffee stains. It is important to adhere to the instructions.

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.

I show how well Tide To Go Stain Erasers save my white sweater

No problems until today my husband spilt on his work pants and I offered the tide stick. Unfortunately it bleached the grey fabric so there is now a white spot. great pair of nice dress pants ruined.

This product saved my designer purse.

A waiter dumped a glass of red wine on my cream colored designer purse. I was convinced it was ruined. We went to the store to get a Tide to go pen and it saved my purse. It looks as good as new.

Will ruin your clothes

Ruined two of my best white dress shirts by leaving large yellow stains. Read the reviews, this happens to many. Tide's suggestions about soaking did no good.

Tide Response From Tide 06/22/2016

We're sorry to hear that you experienced staining. We have included our soaking steps in our message and also have some further tips. We hope that you will give these a try.

Using a PLASTIC bucket, create a soak solution by adding 1/2 use (approx. 25 mls) Tide® per gallon of warm water. Allow the garment to soak for up to 30 minutes, weighting the item with a WHITE towel to keep it totally submerged. Wash in warmest water setting with 1 use of Tide. Try Tide Plus Bleach Alternative. If stain remains, pre-treat 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. Before treating any garment, refer to the instructions on the care label. Always test solution on a hidden area first. If treating washable silk or wool, follow basic instructions, but hand wash. If none of these tips work, please give us a call at 800-879-8433.
