A small dark spot appeared on the white section of a new conforter. I did not want to wash the whole thing for one small spot, so I decided to try a tide to go pen. It worked wonderfully well, removed the spot and left no residue that I could detect.
I wore a brand new shirt to work for the 1st time and got mud on my mint green colored shirt. I used the pent to get the mud stain out and it did, however it bleached my shirt and now there is a big white circle. Brand new shirt ruined. So not only did i waste money on a brand new shirt, i wasted the money on buying the tide pen to go thinking it would help. I would not recommend this product at all.
Got three small-ish dark resin stains out of the hoodie I was wearing, treated it with TTG immediately, followed by washing machine cycle and there was no stain. Thank You Tide To Go! This hoodie was pricey and the last one that was made, I would have been SOL otherwise.
Never used the pen till we were recently on vacation in St Lucia. During dinner my husband spilled a small amount of gravy on an inexpensive linen shirt (white with some light plaid colors). Got back to the room and used the pen on the spot. Didn’t even add water to it...next day, we looked it over and could not find where the spill was! I was sold; glad we brought it with us on vacation.
Every morning when I wake up I brew myself a cup of coffee. On this particular day, I was wearing my brand new $100 shirt. I was so happy to show it off to everyone at work, but as I was drinking my coffee my dog jumped on me. I ended up spilling all my coffee. Most of it fell on the floor, but some got on my new shirt. I tried to dry it with paper towels immediately, but most of the stain was still there. I went upstairs to the laundry room where I grabbed my Tide To Go cleaner. It was my first time trying it and I was excited to see how it worked. I followed exactly what the directions told me to do, but when I finished I realized that all it did was make the stain moist. I was so disappointed because I wasn't going to be able to wear my shirt to work. I ended up having to change my shirt and then that night I put my $100 shirt in the wash. The good thing was that the tide pods worked and got the stain completely out. In conclusion, I would definitely not recommend getting Tide To Go, but I would definitely recommend Tide's detergent.
When I first got my tide pen, I loved it! I tried it on a few stains and it worked great. However, I just got a new clothing item (never wore it, still had tags on) and it happened to get a stain. I was so excited I could use my tide pen to easily get it out but the ended up making a stain 4x the size of the original stain. Not happy with it
Used today on a new shirt and it smells horrible. My husband thought the toddler had pooped in his diaper in the car and my oldest son hugged me and ask why I stunk.
I used this product on a hoodie. I applied the stick to a tiny spot and now I have two huge yellowish stains on it from where it was applied.
Bought a 3 pac of this product made my clothes smell horrible. I would expect much better from tide and pg.
I attempted to use this product on my $120 sweater and it absolutely ruined the shirt. It left a larger yellow stain on the shirt that did not come out after washing multiple times. I just recently got the sweater and now can no longer wear it because of the large stain. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!! I would appreciate if ride would refund me for my now ruined sweater.
This little tide on the go was exactly what I needed. My family and I just lost our homes due to a California wildfire and lost everything we ever had. We had to purchase new clothes but could only afford a few items. We now needed to save our money more then ever. I was wearing a white shirt while eating dinner, and I spilled some sauce all over my shirt. This shirt being one of the very few I had, knowing it was sure to leave a big stain, I decided to purchase a tide on the go. This little thing saved my shirt ! (And saved me another 20 bucks from having to buy a new one) so in the end my white shirt looks good as new! Thank you tide! This little product has made a huge difference!
We have used tide to go many times on our shirts, I just used it on my wife's blue and white shirt which she had a sauce stain, we have used the stick on this shirt before with no problems. This time I applied the stick and it removed the stain but also removed the blue stripe and ruined her shirt. I am sure Tide will do nothing about this.
I got a small stain on my brand new shirt and thought I'd use a Tide Pen to get the stain off. Now, I have a large, white spot on my shirt where the pen completely bleached the color out. I'm never using a Tide Pen again and will not recommend this product to anyone.
I'm so disgusted. I had been looking EVERYWHERE for months for a pink shirt for a certain college team. Finally found one and wore it for the first time today. I dropped sauce on it while eating in the car. Well I thought of the tide pen. It worked like a charm in removing the stain RIGHT ALONG WITH THE PINK DYE IN MY SHIRT leaving a white spot right in the middle on the front. It looks like I used a bleach pen instead! I have used tide detergents in various forms so long that I don't remember when I started. I trusted Tide with all my washables... Needless to say, that trust is gone.
This product is 100% helpful and I will continue to use it.
Bought this as an emergency as I was running errands with my wife and wanted to get out a drop of tomato out and it did not remove the stain at all. I had to buy a three pack.
I used my stain stick on my white shirt when I dropped a small drop of ketchup on it. It took the ketchup out but left a yellow stain on my shirt from the stick itself. :(
Tried to get a little salsa off my sweatshirt, and it bleached a giant spot right on the middle of it. Can't wear it anymore.
Used this for a quick spot stain removal on white pants. It left a yellow stain bigger than the original mark. Almost worse, the smell is unbearable. It smells like feces or vomit. Avoid.
I had a small little dot of food bough the tide to go and it made my new Champion shirt ($35) all yellow and now it doesn’t come off so now I have to buy another shirt. Worst Product!
I got some oil stains on my brown hoodie and immediately applied tide to go. I then washed it and now there's white spots like its been bleached. Ruined my hoodie. first and last time I use this.
I had gotten some sauce on the inside of my jacket. I tried using the stick to remove the satin. It ended up leaking through my coat and left a green stain in its place.
Major design flaw: the cap simply pushes on & off. The cap always comes off in my bag and it pushes up against stuff, depressing the tip & releasing the liquid. Please make it screw top.
I love using the Tide stick. I have a Tide stick in my desk & it works miracles. It smells like baby vomit, though. Coffee smells the worst to get out. Can we get a nice smell added to it? Lavender?
I spilled a little ketchup on my jeans, dabbed the spot lightly with a wet paper towel and then gently applied the Tide Stick. The spot is now bleach and ruined.
I wish I had never bought this product! This product smells terrible- both me and those around me- can smell this vomit like product after use. DO NOT BUY! I wish you give negative stars.
Recently dropped blueberry pie on my white shirt at an event. Couldn’t change so used my Tidestick. It worked magic and the stain disappeared and saved the day. Thank you!!
The pen smells sour and tide representative said that the has a funky odor is normal.
I always loved the clean look of all white bedding, but have 2 dogs. I bought Tide to go and in between washing my white duvet, I use the pen on any spots that show up. It has worked great!
At work, dropped an orange highlighter on my white skirt. Grabbed the pen, went over the stain a couple of times, gone instantly. Love this Awesome product!!!
My sister spilled red wine on her wedding dress at her reception. It was a BIG stain. After dabbing the Tide pen on the lace and the lining, the dress was saved! No damage to the dress and no stain!
I purchased a Tide stain stick to try to get a watermelon juice stain out before it dried. Not only did it NOT remove the original spot but It also left a big yellow circle on my white shirt!
I needed something to clean my white shoes with and when I cleaned the with Tide to go my shoes became yellow
This is marketed to be a quick solution, yet here I am with a shirt that smells like literal garbage, and an even bigger stain now, with the fluid from the pen spreading it into a larger spot.
Tide to Go stick is exactly what you need in a pinch, my white clothes seem to always get a stain on them, whether I know what it's from or not I can count on getting the stain out of it ASAP.
Used as directed on chino shorts to remove chocolate syrup spots. Left discolored spots and stain remains.
Today, I was eating a Chicago dog with everything on it and "wham" I dropped green relish and yellow mustard in tandem down the front of my shirt. Five minutes later the stains were completely gone !!
Dropped some of my breakfast burrito on my shirt.. used tide pen, rubbed the strain for what felt like hours, the "pen" did not work in the slightest... felt like I was ripped off...
It seems to get any kind of stain out, and pretty reliably too.
Pen did not work. I've been using the pen for the last three hours, which is a coffee stain. The stain did not come out, instead, it made it look like it was running down my pants.
I have always sworn by Tide Pens and always have them in my bag, but today that all changed when I pulled it out to remove a stain from my designer top it put a hole in my top. I was livid!
Spilled a little bit of coffee on my favorite chinos. Used a regular Tide to Go pen on the stain and now they have a huge discoloration stain. Nowhere is it advertised it could bleach your clothes!!
it is really cool and i highly recomend but TIFFANY will not share the secret formula with me and im HIGH KEY OFFENDED but I love it so much!!!!
I keep a pen in the car and work being that I'm always staining my clothes when I'm on lunch.
I just removed a red felt tip pen mark from my dress. Worked great! But like everyone else says, why does it smell this bad????
I am unsure why this pen smells horribly. I honest to god thought someone stuck my pen in feces or someones vomit!! Why on Earth does it smell so bad? I cannot stand it.
Tide pens are good, work as promised. My one Big problem is the foul odor they develop after four months. No warning about it on packaging I've seen. Can anything be done to correct the issue?
This pen has saved me a few times from lunch. When lunch jumps out and takes a chunk of professionalism from your attire you will be prepared with this handy pen.
There was a time I dropped a strawberry on a white cushioned chair at a bridal shower, another was when my friend stained her white bridal gown. Thank G-d for Tide to Go!
I dropped food on my blouse and jeans. The stain on my blouse is still the same, only difference is that it looks like a wet stain. My jeans, the stain looks like the stain spread.
Used tide to get a coffee stain out of my grey shoes and it turned the spots white. Completely ruined an almost brand new pair.
This stuff is AMAZING! Like, thai-iced-tea-out-of-white-pants-in-thirty-seconds amazing! It even got dark green pen out of my favorite light grey sweatshirt! No idea where I would be without this!
I got a small tomato sauce stain on my shirt and went to use the stick ASAP but it made it much worse. Now I smell like straight up chemicals and look like a mess.
i spilt some coffee on my white shirt and i used my tide to go stick and it made it worse now i have a huge yellow spot on my brand new white top. Please help!
Was eating a steak, got a drop of grease on my wool pants, dabbed spot with napkin, applied the tide pen less than 3 minutes after; pen was completely ineffective and may have made the spot worse!
Would you rather look dirty or smell dirty? The foul smell of this product by far exceeds its cleaning potential.
Used it immediately - effect was a splotch around original, unchanged grease (from hamburger).
Once again at work and got a stain from moving a computer on my slacks. This helps to down play the stain till you have time to wash\dry clean your slacks or shirt.
So I'm 22 and I bought a Legend of Zelda bed set. The cat had fun with a pen ALL OVER it. I grabbed my Tide pen; it removed ALL of the INK STAIN - it even cleared it out of the white parts! 10/10
I have a tide pen in my purse & desk. They work great; the smell however is unbelievably retched. I thought it was spoiled until I opened a second one only to smell the same.
This product is the opposite of what i needed! it was unable to destain my grape juice soaked tee shirt. This product is overall a waste of money and i do not recommend. Oxi Clean works much better!
While on a cruise I got a red drink on white slacks. I was given a "Tide to go" stick by another passenger. I was totally amazed that the stain disappeared!
I use the pen at work after lunch as I always spill something. It makes the stain virtually invisible in about 20 minutes and saves me from looking sloppy in meetings. Thanks!
I spilled coffee on my shirt I did just what the packaging said to clean the excess and then proceed to use the stain remover. It did not work whatsoever it just made my stain bigger!
I just used the stick to try and get blue ballpoint pen out of my ivory blouse. It made it worse. Thank goodness I'm wearing a cardigan
I got a small spot of juice on them. I put a small amount of tide pen on the spot. The spot has now been replaced by a larger faded area. I didn't read anything about not using the tide pen on jeans.
Is it true that they can go bad? I just used and it smells like throw-up. Why is this?
Your TideToGo pen ruined my new white shirt! I bought one of these pens to get out a couple of spaghetti sauce spots, and everywhere I rubbed the pen, turned the shirt yellow!! Shirt is ruined.
This pen left yellow everywhere I rubbed it to get a couple spots of spaghetti sauce on my brand new white shirt. Shirt's ruined.
Used it on a colored shirt and it REMOVED THE COLOR. Nothing to warn me that this may happen, no way for me to know. Don't waste your money!!
Just rubbed the pen into a stain a little and the color came out of that spot in my shirt.
Today I had a small brown food stain on my light beige jacket and the Tide pen got rid of it completely with no ring in less than 30 seconds. Fantastic!
well, it did get the grease stain out but now I have an even larger bleached out area. I did not see any warning that it was bleaching....
The liquid in this pen left marks on my cotton/poly raincoat that are so much worse than the original stains I was trying to get out. One machine wash hasn't fixed it; I hope my coat isn't ruined.
I swear by this stuff. I never do reviews for products, but this REALLY WORKS! I always have one in my purse. Thank you Tide To Go!
Used it to get dirt off on one shirt and a food substance and both white shirts are now ruined. I am out $100 now because we have to get new shirts!
Took a Tide-to-go stick on our tour of Italy. On the trip my white cardigan was sprayed with cola, I sat on chocolate & a waiter dripped grease on my jacket. The Tide stick took out every stain.
THIS STUPID PEN DOESNT WORK MY CLOSE STILL HAVE STUFF ON IT. I EVEN FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS AND IT STILL SUCKS. MAKE A BETTER QUALITY OUT OF THIS PEN ADD OXYCLEAN OR SOMETHING!!
THIS STUPID PEN DOESNT WORK MY CLOSE STILL HAVE STUFF ON IT. I EVEN FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS AND IT STILL SUCKS. MAKE A BETTER QUALITY OUT OF THIS PEN ADD OXYCLEAN OR SOMETHING!!
Received a gift of Tide to Go pen while in Mexico. Having trouble finding them in Pacific NW. Help!
This product is incredible. I have meeting today after lunch. A fry covered in ketchup tumbled down the front of my shirt. My tide to go pen and a microfiber cloth made it almost unnoticeable!
I recently used this product on a pair of denim jeans and it heavily discolored the jeans. Attempted to give "1 Star" on all fields but the site forced me to give 1.5. Not cool :(
The Tide pen is a novel idea that works--a stain pen and blotter in one. However, the liquid smells like baby vomit. I would like for them to throw a little fragrance into the mix.
To avoid having to wash a bedspread with a few dirty spots on it at a cost of over $30, I took a few swipes with my Tide To Go and the stains disappeared! Thanks for making such a great product!
The tide to go pen works for color fabrics but when you use it on whites you're better off with the stain you had. It made the original stain fade but created a wet stain looking like a sweat stain
I just bought a Tide stick, but I've only had it for a week and it seems to already be empty (no solution is released when I press down!) I'm very disappointed with the duration of this product's use.
Wish it would come in a clear tube so I'd know when to get a new one! Great product! Introduced all my friends to it and they love it!
Used on my black pants, blotch parts all along it now, so it works
Dropped some bar-b-Q sauce on my white shirt, ran into the store and cleaned the stain while in the checkout line. Works as advertised and I'm forever grateful!
This product did not remove the food stain but removed the color of the fabric leaving ugly white spots on my skirt..
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.
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.
execellent idea for travel purpose and the stain comes right out
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.
Used it on my Tom's (Shoes) to wipe out a yellow mustard stain... the pen decided to take the colors with it :-D #SOS
It sounds like they fixed the smelly part since my pen was created, but it worked fine. Just read the directions on how to use it and what to use it for and you shouldn't have any problems.
I bought a shirt, fitted and dry cleaned. Got home and noticed dime size yellow stain on the collar, Had wedding in 24 hrs. I ran to the store and bought this product. Worked wonders, Stain gone!!!!
Don't know what happens if this project sits for a while but something decomposes and stinks like garbage. used in on my shirt and people were asking what stunk. really bad smell. would not recommend.
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.
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.
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.
Paid $70 for some new, white Vans, just to have the Tide to Go ruin them. Not happy, at all.
The TTG removed a sauce stain on my white polo...only problem is the liquid from the TTG added a brown-ish/yellow-ish ring on my shirt around where the old stain used to be...
Within 3 month after I bought this, pen was dried out when I went to use it even though it was sealed in package!
I've used a Tide to Go stick for years. It's been a lifesaver on all fabrics/colors, so I didn’t hesitate to use it on a tiny (easy to remove) stain on my new $400 pink linen dress. It’s now ruined.
Perfect for my husband when he was away from home and needed to keep his dressed blues squared away!
This Product is exactly what I needed! How can I buy it with lowest price and where.
Spilled BBQ sauce on a white shirt while driving and eating smh. Luckily Walgreens had this pen. Saved my life and my new shirt. A miracle in a pen, jusr what I needed.
This is the second time that I have given tide to go pens a chance. Both times it has destroyed my clothing, leaving white stains on my BRAND NEW pants! Very disappointed in this product.
I used a Tide to Go pen on my brand new white jeans. Now I have yellow stains in the two spots I used the Tide to Go pen. What can I do to get rid of the yellow stains? I'm really disappointed Tide did this to my white jeans and now I cannot wear them. I would have never expected these results from a Tide product and have always used Tide products for all laundry needs. I'll be reconsidering moving forward after this bad experience leaving me with ruined jeans.
Loved this product until I used it last night on my favorite camel colored coat. I got red lipstick on the coat and although it was a small mark I figured the pen would remove the stain as it usually has with other clothing. Once I used it on the coat it seemed to remove it until I checked the following day and realized the HUGE white mark left on my coat. It is completely ruined :( I am trying to research on how to fix it but I am worried there's no hope. Someone please let me know if theres anything I can do to fix this? Thanks.
I bought a 3-pack of the Tide to Go pens thinking I could have one stashed in my home, work, and car. However, upon trying to use the pens I found that the caps do not come off easily. In fact, on two of them the cap was held on so tight that instead of coming off, the whole top of the pen came off in my hand and spilled detergent all over the place. What a waste of money!
I got some mascara on my white pants and Tidetogo did not get it out. I was disappointed, but do like the idea of having a stain remover in my purse
While shopping at a local food store, samples of salsa were given to customers. My sample just happened to drop on the front of my new, beautiful white blouse. Attendant gave me Tide to Go which took the stain out. But less than 1 hour, I had a terrible yellow stain on the front of my blouse. Came home, threw it in the washing machine with Tide Detergent and it would not come out (did not put it in the dryer or the stain would have set forever). However, fingers crossed, I just poured distilled white vinegar on the entire stain and have it soaking with detergent in hot water. Looks like this may have done the trick by removing the stain. I will leave it soak overnight and hopefully the stain is gone. Vinegar is a wonderful cleaning agent for many things. Yep, fingers crossed!
I used A Tide-to-go stick on a very tiny stain on my BRAND NEW blue pants that I bought yesterday. The stain came out but it dried and the color was completely stripped from the pants. I cannot believe brand new pants are ruined :( I don't have a lot of money and I never get new things. This is devestating to me. I hope Tide does something to change that, as it seems to be a common side-effect. I'm so sad.
I'm a loyal Tide user for laundry, and also carry Tide To Go in my suitcase pouch. Applied it to stain on designer dress after dinner on trip. Stain remained, but with the addition of a 3" oval discoloration that did not disappear. Dry cleaner at home said the Tide had permanently removed the color from the fabric. Incredibly, he was able to restore the appearance. Worth noting: other similar stains on the dress that were not treated with Tide To Go that night came out just fine in the dry cleaning. If I'd simply waited, I would have been spared vacation-blues from thinking I'd ruined a gorgeous dress by taking the advice of the advertising.
I had balsamic vinegar splash all over my brand new shirt. I applied the Tide to Go pen on the stains, and they vanished almost instantly. Thanks for saving my life. I have one product recommendation. Put this on a Key Chain. It would help men, who don't carry around a purse with them.
I have purchased Tide to Go before and had good results. I recently purchased the Tide to Go Mini for our vacation. I applied the the stain remover to my husband's shirt, as well as mine. The stains came off immediately, but the shirts were left with yellow stains which cannot be removed. I was so disappointed. My shirt was brand new and my husband's shirt was an older, but nice one. I threw mine away, but fortunately could still purchase a new one at a sale price. My husband now wears his to work on the farm. As for the offensive Tide to Go smell, this is only if it is an old stain remover. The new ones are fine.
This is my first unsolicited consumer review but I was inspired. Just today, I dropped a fresh raspberry on my pants @ work. I didn't notice until it had stained them beyond fixing with the dish detergent in our kitchen here. I had left my Tide-to-go pen (never used before !) @ home but someone suggested trying the small store in our building. They had it ! $$$ but well worth it... It truly saved one of my favorite pair of slacks: Orange (color of Tide container) cropped ones pants are basically irreplaceable ! Thanks, Tide-to-go !
I received a tide to go in my Influenster vowvoxbox and I have to say i was a little bit thinking that this product would not work but I was wrong I had a mustard stain on my fav shirt and it took it off with out leaving a heavy smell or damage my clothes. I say this product is a must
My elderly mother dripped catsup on her blouse and slacks on the way to a doctor's appointment. Stopped at nearby store to get her Tide to Go after seeing advertisement for the product so she would not have to return home to change. The catsup stain was VERY fresh. Removed the excess catsup and applied Tide to Go to stain. It did NOT remove the stain, merely smeared it/lightened it and created a ring on her clothing in both places. In fact, when the physician entered the room, she immediately asked, "What happened." We threw the product away -- it does not work as advertised!
I've used Tide to Go for quite a while with wonderful results. BUT, when I assisted an elderly neighbor and her dog from an attack by stray dogs last night, wasn't thinking about my favorite white jacket - which ended up covered in blood. As soon as I got home, treated the blood stains with Tide to Go, most of the blood came out. Poured Tide Laundry Detergent directly on the remaining stains and immediately laundered the jacket. It's cleaner than clean - I was amazed since it wasn't supposed to work well on blood. But it did - and I can't thank you enough!!!
The Tip on my Pen dried out and broke off with less than 1/3 of the product utilized.
I am highly disappointed in Tide-to-go. I got a small, simple stain on colored pants at work and thought my Tide-to-go would be the easy answer. That's exactly what it is for right? I used the product which completely discolored my pants, so the pants are left with a white splotch on the front and ruined. Now I am out the price of the pair of pants. :(
My son and daughter in law came to take me out for brunch on Mother's Day. I was wearing white pants and a pretty blouse and carried a cup of coffee, my first mistake! My son hit a pothole and my coffee splashed on my white pants. We were too far away to go home so I could change my clothes. My daughter in law, Shari, opened her purse and took out her Tide To Go and I got all the coffee stains out of my pants! I was so happy I went out and bought myself one the next day! And Mother's day was perfect!
I find the pen works well when I treat a stain quickly. I despise the smell of the product. I usually have to find time to change my shirt to avoid the stench.
I wore a white shirt to work, and, not thinking, leaned over my take out cup of coffee to grab something off the truck floor. Of course I got coffee smudged on the front of my shirt.I was not only already at work but getting ready to meet a very high end client for my boss, and needed to make a great impression. Thank goodness I have Tide To Go sticks, cleaned it up in just a minute and dried very quickly! Thanks SO much for a great product!
I went a local mexican restaurant and got some spatters of red sauce on my brand new white dress shirt.Nothing large. The biggest spatter was no larger than a pea. Immediately i washed off the excess food making sure to pat it, not whipe at it to keep the stain from spreading. Within 10 minutes of getting the stain I added the tide to go pen to all the spatters. After 20 minutes it was dry and the stains had not, in the slightest, gone away. I made sure it was fully dry and tried applying it again. Nothing. In fact, the stains color actually dispersed across the entire area I had applied the Tide to Go. On top of that there are dark circles around the edges of where it was wet. This pen just ruined a $70 shirt. Now any stain remover I use won't get the dark circles out. My shirt is ruined. Great job Tide. Buyers beware. It has a $3 price tag for a reason
I use Tide and, therefore, I thought the Tide to go stick would be good to try. At lunch, I got a few drops of food of my cotton top. I used the Tide stick and now there are big round yellow stains on my almost $200 Eileen Fisher new top. I will never use the Tide stick again.
One day, while I was at work, wearing a white shirt. I spilled Coke all down the front of my shirt. I had to go to church right after work and did not have time to go home to change shirts. Fortunately, I carry a "Tide To Go" pen in my briefcase. I used the pen (and it was a big area) and every part of the area came clean!! Thank you Tide, GREAT product
I HAD SOME MAKEUP STAINS ON MY WHITE PANTS THIS MORNING AND I BOUGHT THE TIDE PEN, THINKING THAT IT WOULD WORK. WELL IT DID NOT, IN FACT IT MADE MY PANTS WORSE, FIRST DAY WEARING THEM AND I GOT THE PEN TO REMOVE THE SMALL STAIN AND IT LEFT A HUGE YELLOW RING. NEVER BUYING A TIDE PRODUCT AGAIN AND NEITHER WILL MY FAMILY,. I EVEN BOUGHT 2 ONE EXTRA AND I WILL BE RETURNING BOTH, TIDE I WILL NEVER BY ANYYYYYYY PRODUCT FROM YOU AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! VERY UNSATISFIED, AND PEOPLE DONT BELIEVE THE LIES
Good product, works for me most of the time, Recently I used it on a dress shirt, wuite a lot of the pen to get a stain out, and there is a faint line/residue left on the shirt after it dries, does anyone know if this residue will wash out if I put the shirt in the wash (with more tide products of course!)? Little reluctant to try it on more of my dress shirts until I see if the tide to go residue will come out in the wash...
First time using tide to go and I did not like it. It did not remove the stain plus it left an awful smell on my clothes.Just for my luck I decided to use it at work everyone I worked with could smell it.First and last time I buy this product. I was not satisfied I was dissapointed
Had coffee stain on slacks and tried to remove with pen and all it did was make an outline of the stain. Made it worse.
I used this product for the first time today in the hopes I could at least lighten a set in grease stain on the front of a newer sweatshirt. To my amazement, the stain is gone with one washing. I used Tide To Go instant stain remover, applied and rubbed in a little laundry detergent and then washed in hot water. So happy that I can now wear again, the sweatshirt I thought was going to get thrown in the "rag bag"! Thank you Tide:)!
Got coffee stains out of a friend's pants. In Hawaii, every time I turned around, my granddaughter was saying, " Tide Pen, Grandma". No problem with smell from it, nor cap falling off.
I've used this several times, always making excuses. Oh, it must be an old pen, maybe its just the wrong fabric to use it on, etc. etc. Unlike other reviewers, I have not had issues with the cap falling off. I do have two issues with this product, that to me make it worthless. 1. It leaves the treated area slightly discolored (until you wash it, at least for washable fabrics), which is almost more noticeable than the stain itself. 2. It smells. Bad. Like really, really bad. My coworker used it and had to change. It's very strong and very unpleasant. It's distracting. I know it's not a fluke. I've purchased 4 pens in my life and they're all the same. I've heard the same from others. I'm surprised More reviewers did not comment on the stench. This is not something I would waste my money on. Very disappointing product from a company that continuously releases great products.
I had an important meeting and bought a brand new white shirt for $70 which I never do. I cut the tags off, put the shirt on and headed to my meeting. After the meeting I was driving in my car. Of course I spilled coffee all over myself and was immediately in a panic thinking I had ruined my new shirt. I stopped at a hotel and tried to rinse the coffee out with water to no avail. I called my wife who suggested I go to a store and get a tide pen to see if it would help. The product is amazing. It was literally like a magic trick erasing the coffee stain on my new shirt. I just wanted to say thank you. Great product!
I SPILLED MY MUM'S SCRUMPTIOUS YORKSHIRE PUDDING GRAVY ON MY FAVOURITE TROUSERS TODAY. SUCH A SHAME. MY TRUSTED TATTOO ARTIST SUGGESTED TIDE TO GO. I GAVE IT A GO. THE STAIN PREVAILED. DO NOT BELIEVE THE LIES.
Lunch. Three small hot sauce dots on my white shirt. Doh! Stopped at Duane Reade on way back to office and bought Tide to Go. $4.89. Expensive, but OK if it works. Excited to use it. But wow, despite two applications on each, i still have three (slightly less visible) little orange spots. Bummer. Feeling ripped-off.
I got a stain on my favorite blue silk dress when I was on vacation. Some sort of sauce stain. I was trying to remove stain by using Tide to Go. I shouldn't have done it!!! Now I have large yellow stain where I had used the Tide to go. I was crying, honestly. My favorite dress is ruined by your product!
On my wedding this past June, I had accidentally sat in coffee right before the wedding ceremony. It left a huge coffee stain on the back of my dress. In a panic, (and obviously, I was trying to stay calm as best I could), my bridesmaids brought out their Tide to GO sticks. After about 15 minutes...and with about 3 "Tide to Go" sticks, the stain COMPLETELY came out. It was amazing. Tide to GO seriously saved my white wedding dress and my wedding! It is an amazing product!
This little miracle is always with me. If any stain gets on my clothes I use Tide to Go and the stain is gone! Easy to use and so portable.
After seeing a small (1/2 dime size) mustard stain on my white cotton dress shirt, I attempted to remove said stain by using Tide to Go. After wetting the spot and rubbing with the applicator tip as recommended, I was disappointed to see that not only was the stain still there, but it had grown, and was now surrounded by a much larger, discolored ring. The shirt (one of my favorites) is now essentially useless.
I was at my 40th high school class reunion. Some of us gathered early to have a drink. I was wearing white capris and ordered a Bloody Mary. Yup, I spilled it all over my white pants. I got out my Tide Stick and went to work. It used whatever was left in that stick, but it did the trick. I was not embarrassed the rest of the night. When I got home and washed them, they came out completely white! Thank you for an enjoyable evening.
The Tide to Go Pen is a great product but I spend more on replacement having to buy another because of the cap that always comes off. , I have contacted TIDE and they have not changed this product defect.
At the start of my day I was unpleasantly surprised with a bloody nose. Unfortunately, it stained my light colored pants. I am too far from home to go home and change and I surely did not want to be in public with the stain on the front of my pants. I keep the Tide to Go stick in my car. I went out to the car and soaked that area. It took more than usual, but it did work. I made it through the day without embarrassing myself or my boss, and there was not a stain on my pants after it dried or after I washed them! Thanks for a great product that makes such nasty events easier to handle, and saved my day.
Tide-to-go is great at lifting stains, however, if you get a tide-to-go pen like I did, you won't be satisfied. These pens tend to spoil over time and if you purchase one that spoils, it will cause your clothes to smell and smell strongly. The smell is unpleasant and can be compared to vomit or sour milk. Tide-to-go should be sold like milk, with an expiration date. I used to be an avid user of Tide products but now that I've experience what I've experienced, along with the money I've wasted, I can no longer trust Tide products!
My wife and I use the stick successfully a lot. We frequently eat out alone and with groups of friends. Someone inevitably stains a shirt, blouse or pants. When we have the stick it works great. The problem with the stick is our collective memories. We often forget it altogether or leave in in the car. I thought it would be a good idea to be able to put one our key chains. The keys always make into the restaurant so we would always have for immediate use.
$3 Tide Pen saved me $37: I had a blue, liquid ink pen leak on a white dress shirt in the middle of my work day (client facing). I started with the Tide pen and the stain started to spread. Co-workers though I was nuts and that the shirt was garbage. I blotted with paper towels and continued with the Tide Pen. Within 10 minutes, the stain was 98% gone and the ink that had spread was eliminated. Tide pen saved my shirt and my day. A new shirt would have cost $30. A drive home would have lost 90 minutes of productivity and cost two gallons of gas (say $3.50 X 2).
It removes most stains like red wine, but pasta sauce just leaves the stain a light orange. I just wish they would print the directions on the actual stick and have a screw on cap. The cap always comes off and the liquid comes out and is wasted. Plus the directions on the actual package would be helpful due to the fact that most of us discard the original packaging,
I used Tide to Go on one of my favorite shirts and ended up with a larger stain. Now I have a dark circle surrounded by a lighter circle on my shirt. What a waste of money, but more what a disappointment in a product.
I helped a mother get chocolate ice cream out of her daughter's dress. The mother was SO PLEASED!
Good product, but I agree with the other reviewers - MAKE IT A SCEW CAP, please! The cap is constantly popping off in my brief case and the stain remover runs out. I now tape the cap shut so that it will stay on.
I used to swear by this product and would recommend it to any of my friends. Not anymore! I splurged on a new pair of light pants for spring two days ago. This morning I used the Tide Stick pen to remove a small stain and it created a huge bleach mark! My $200 pants are ruined and I only wore them once. So upset!!!
I've had a Tide stick in my bag and work desk drawer since they have come out. But I'm at my end with the caps and it sounds like I'm not alone. Add a small twist to the caps so they don't pop off! I want to buy more Tide sticks because I've used up the pen for its purpose, not because they've gone dry due to a lack of a cap.
I just transitioned to civilian life after serving 26 years in the US Army, switching from the uniform (camouflage) to business attire was a big change for me and I had failed to realize how easy it was to stain your shirt (once again camouflage covers all). The Tide Stain Stick has become a necessity in my desk to remove any and all spots, stains and embarrassing spills. Thanks for the clever invention.
So on the first day of starting a new job, I spilled tea on my shirt. This is a very common stain and one of the food stains this product is recommended for use on. I was so proud of myself for having my tide to go pen with me! Unfortunately, the tide pen failed to remove the tea, but even worse it bleached my shirt so now I have a tea stain surrounded by a light yellow ring on a bright yellow shirt. Needless to say, I felt like an idiot walking around like that on my first day, and my brand new shirt is ruined. Thanks for nothing, Tide.
I have used the Tide to Go pen in the past with success, and have appreciated having it in my suitcase. However, I have just purchased a white, cotton shirt which now has two yellow stains on the front where I used the Tide to Go pen. I was trying to remove two small red spots that splashed on the shirt from preparing raspberries. The fruit stains disappeared, but the yellow stains that resulted are obvious in sunlight. I've washed the shirt, and the yellow remains. I've called Tide, and the customer service agent recommended more Tide detergent directly on the stains over night, followed by rewashing. I'm trying this now. Hopeful, but very disappointed in the meantime.
The product use to work very well, but you must have changed the formula. Now it doesn't work very well at all. I will not waste my money on it in the future.
Stain removal is fabulous with Tide-To-Go! Quick and efficient product! However - the cap should be screw-on so it stays on. The product dries out quickly if uncapped, and in my purse, that is a daily occurance. Please - P & G - fix this problem!!
Your product is AMAZING!! I works fast,it's simple,it also actually fights stains. But, you could put more of the cleaning agent in the Tide to go. I am a messy eater (sometimes) and I spill food and have lots of stains. Another thing is the cap. It keeps falling off. Thus,the stick dries out or leaks. Other than that, your product is AWESOME!!!! I LOVE Tide!:)
Product is wonderful and a must-have. I keep one in the car, in my purse, in my desk at work, etc. I agree with the previous writer - the cap for my Tide to Go pen is ALWAYS coming off! It would be great to have a tighter or screw-cap.
I love the tide stick. I have one in my purse at all times. I have one GIANT gripe. Make a screw on lid!! The lid continuously comes off in my purse and the stick leaks. It is expensive enough without losing half of it in the the bottom my purse. This is a huge problem..Why is is so hard to make a lid that stays on!
I had just gotten a new Gryffindor tie at the Harry Potter exhibition, and a little while later, noticed a small stain on it. I used the Tide to Go, and not only is the original stain still there, but there is a bigger stain left by the stain "remover." This is a horrible product and I will NEVER use it again.
The tide stick has let me down before, but in less important situations so never felt the urge to write a review but today I tried to remove a stain off of a tie for a friend who was rushing out to a meeting. (He is in sales and always has to look his best) I used the pen as always and when it dried the stain was still there....i guess from now on i shall resort to the old cloth and seltzer trick. that has never failed me. Tide stick is no longer on my shopping list.
tried to remove stain product didn"do to well would not recommendto any one
I purchased a "to go" stick for a recent trip to Mexico. Day 3 I got blood on the knee of my white pants. The "to go' stick got rid of the blood stain with little effort. Back at home a leaky pen got put in the wash. My husband's new fleece came out with an ink stain about the size of a silver dollar. Desperate for a solution, I remembered the stain pen in my travel bag. Viola! It again did the trick and the fleece is good as new.
I love this product, but the cap doesn't stay on...dries out and I have to throw it away. Why not a screw on cap?
When your daughter shops on her own and then spends her own money on a special gift just for you and blueberry sauce is splashed on the front of the blouse the first time you wear it.... Grab your Tide to go stick and no more worries! Thank you for a great product!
I bought a Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover Pen because it seemed like every time I would wear my brand new Kenny Chesney concert t-shirt I would end up getting something on it. Sure enough the first time I wear the shirt after getting the pen I get BBQ Sauce on it. I used the pen and the stain did not come out like the commercials said it would, which to be honest I didn't expect it to, I mainly just wanted the pen to prevent the stain from setting in the fabric since I was in a restaurant. When I got home I immediately put the shirt in the wash, but sadly the BBQ sauce has not come out. I have had to purchase another product and treat the shirt a couple of times just to get all of the stain out. This product does not work the way it claims, at least it didn't for me. Worse $5.00 I have ever spent.
Had a small ink stain the size of a BB in my shirt pocket. I know the directions say does not work well on ink but what the hay. I used the Tide To Go pen on the ink stain and it grew to the size of a quarter. It was black now it is a huge gray stain. I could of lived with the BB size stain in the pocket but a big gray stain the size of a quarter ruined the shirt. Very disappointed!!!
A coworker offered me a Tide stain remover stick to fix a new stain on my dress shirt. The Tide stain remover only changed the color of the stain from a subtle red/brown to a bright yellow stain. Thanks Tide for ruining a $100 shirt!
I was under the impression that the Tide to Go Instant Stain Remover (T2Go) really works. However, I purchased one this morning for almost $5.00.I had about three coffee stains on my 100% cotton white shirt in which I tried to get out. The stains lightened up, but they were nowhere near gone. Plus a water mark ring was left around the stains. Should I have gotten T2Go with bleach if one like that exists because mine did not work at all?
my boyfriend had 4 bloody noses in 24 hours. I tried the Tide to go Stain Remover and it removed the stains from the sheets, pillow case, his shirt, and even the mattress and carpet. I would gladly recommend this product to everyone!
I was just at the supermarket, buying fresh raspberries when the package leaked all over my white sweatshirt. After checking out, I decided to go back for a stain removed and picked up the Tide to Go Pen. It took about 5 minutes to remove the raspberry stain completely! I am so happy I purchased this product.
Why do I always seem to have spaghetti when I wear my white shirt? I did again today and of course I got some spaghetti sauce splatter on my shirt. Thank goodness for this product. It works like a champ. Now no one outside the break room knows how much of a slob I am except me. I love this product.
I keep a pen in my office drawer and in my car for emergencies. I'm a very messy eater, so it comes in handy often. However, this pen smells terrible. I immediately blot/wet my clothes to get the awful smell out. It's unfortunate that while I'm eating lunch, and inevitably spilling on myself, I lose my appetite after getting a whiff of this pen trying to clean myself up. Please, please (!!) add some anti-vomit smelling chemical to this solution.
I also have the same complaint about the cap not staying on in my purse. I have to keep it in a baggie to keep it from leaking all over my purse. My other complaint is that it doesn't last long before it develops a foul odor. Every few months, I have to replace it because it stinks like vomit. I had to use it yesterday and it did get the stain out but I had to get a wet rag to get that smell out of my blouse before my coworkers smelled it on me. VERY STINKY!! Why is that? Your chemists need to work on that because I hate having to keep buying a new one when the one I have is still relatively full. Money down the drain as far as I'm concerned.
I used the pen to remove a small soda stain on a white blazer. The soda is gone, however, there is a large water mark left from the pen. After a trip to the cleaners, the stain remains..I'm very disappointed!
I love this product, usually have a stick in my purse and it works great to prevent stains from setting in. My only critic of the product is the design of the cap; for whatever reason, the cap will not stay on the stick. This has happened to me every single time I've purchased this, and as a result the tide stick dries up prematurely in my bag. I hope they fix this design flaw
I had spilled red stamp ink on my favorite hoodie and I thought it was gone forever! I used almost an entire pen on it because I applied it several times throughout the day. When I got home, I threw it in the wash, and VIOLA! the stain was gone. Thank you tide pen! :) The minus side to this thing is, I have had these before, the caps come off in my purse and they dry out before I use them. I happened to have a pretty new one with me, so it was still good. Also, they stink, so I avoid using them if I think it can wait because I don't want to walk around smelling like that. Overall, two thumbs up!
So I was deejaying for President Obama and had some downtime & went for lunch and stained my shirt before my event I bought this product for the 1st time and my stain was gone! That simple now i carry this everywhere i go! Hey tide want to sponsor me some products!!
This weekend I got out the dress I wore on my honeymoon - two years ago. Friends were hosting a fancy dinner and it was the first chance I'd had to wear the dress since my honeymoon. When I got it out of the closet, I noticed a splatter of red wine spots, a two-year-old stain that I had never treated at all. I didn't have much hope, but got out my Tide Pen (which I've owned forever but rarely use) to give it a try. A little scrub of the pen on each wine dot, and the dress was pure white again. Absolutely as good as new. I could not be more impressed with this product. Anything that can remove a two-years-old red wine stain is a champion in my book!
I have used your Tide pen many times in the past and it ids usually very good for taking stains off clothing but the last 2 pens have had a real problem..After using the pen on my clothing-there is a very foul smelling odor that is just terrible and hangs with you for hours..The last 2 pens have had this foul smell..It is awful and I actually had to wash a shirt today immediately after I arrived home to try to eliminate this foul smell...Your company has evidentally put another chemical in the pen..I will not buy another one till you fix this problem...
I think the To Go pen is great and works well. However, once it's opened, the cap comes off in my purse. I am lucky to get one or two uses out of each pen, then it dries up. You need to devise a screw-on cap, or a cap that seals securely! I have been burned so many times by this product, I will not purchase it again.
I love the results from Tide to Go pen but the design of the cap is horrible. I have had at least 5 of these pens and without fail the cap comes off in my purse. I constantly have some of the fluid leaking in my purse. There must be a way to design a cap that stays on! A screw top maybe? This design flaw made me open to trying a Duane Reade generic version. Fix the cap and I'm back.
As hard as I try I can't seem to get through a meal or an activity without getting some sort of stain on me. Tide to go has definitely been a life saver....or at least a clothes saver! Salad dressing, barbecue sauce and even fresh made blueberry sauce have all come out with this product. I carry one in my purse, my car and even my gym bag! It has not only saved my clothes but those of many of my friends since I always have it with me. The only reason I have rated this item a 4 out of 5 is because of the poor design of the cap. Every time I fish for it in the bottom of my purse it comes out cap-less. It doesn't seem to be much of an issue, but it would be nice if would just stay on.
My husband and I decided to be "nice" when it came time to cut the cake. He was being very careful, but some of the chocolate cake and filling fell straight down my dress leaving a trail. We still had a ton of pictures to take so I was on the verge of tears, when my new sister in law brought over a Tide to Go stick. It took the chocolate right out of my dress and 5 years later, there are still no stains or residue that has reappeared. Thanks Tide!!1
I had an unknown stain on the front of a white polyester jersey. It removed the stain then 10 minutes later it became a larger purple stain, which was not the color of the original stain. I tried washing it off and it only made it worse. I pretreated and washed it later and most, but not all of it, was removed. I really liked that jersey.
For the most part, the pen took out 4-5 small stains from splashed pizza sauce. But in a couple of places it left a yellow spot on my white, 63% cotton/33% nylon/4% spandex dress shirt. Soaking overnight in liquid detergent seems to have helped only a little bit, stain is still there.
Today my mom dyed her hair with a dark brown ammonia-free hair color and it got on our bathroom curtain(not the clear plastic). We did not notice til 2 hours and 30 mins later and we used tide to go and it was gone! NO stains after or any color changes on our shower curtain. Totally recommend this product. They should add on this product-- removes hair color dye-- most definitely!
This product ruined by brand new pair of white shoes. While it succeeded in removing the coffee I spilled on the toe of these shoes, it also left an UGLY yellow tinge that just will not go away. I'm severely disappointed that there is no warning on the label of this product and hope they add it.
I purchased the tide stain stick in hopes of removing a chocolate stain on my blue skirt. It did NOT work!!!!
I used the Tide to go on a brand new pair of pants to remove a lunch stain. It removed the stain, but faded the color of the Khaki's to a light yellow. Super disappointed.
I keep a Tide pen in my desk at work, in my purse, in my daughter's diaper bag, and in my car. I'm clumsy and always spilling or dropping things on my clothes, and at the very least the Tide pen makes stains less noticeable. Usually it takes them out altogether-- great for coffee sloshed on work clothes!
i split ranch on my favorite shirt and i used the tide to go mini and the stain will not come out
I used to use Tide to Go all the time with no problems-loved it! But this past weekend I used the pen on a fairly large spot on brand new white pants and it stained them BRIGHT YELLOW! :( I had to walk around all day in them with neon yellow stains. Yikes. And after one wash with bleach and oxy clean, there was still some yellowing. I'm hoping after another wash or two and more bleach it will come out. I don't know what happened this time because I used it all the time. Scared to try it on any more clothes now...
I was originally introduced to Tide to go a couple years ago. At the time it was an amazing product bordering on magical. I would have rated it five stars at the time. It was great at removing stains and leaving nothing behind. However, after my original stock was depleted, I needed to buy more about a month ago. It is obvious the design and formula have changed since my first purchase. The first difference I noticed was a change from the soft felt-like tip of the original to a hard plastic tip in the newer version. Where the original could make stains disappear, the new only seems to have the ability to make them worse. At this point, I would rather just deal with the stains on my clothes rather than how the new Tide to go ruins them. If you want to make me happy, please, please go back to the original design.
I wasn't able to test this out. The whole idea of this being a "To Go" item would be that you put it in your purse, right? The cap fell off inside my purse (they might want to invest in making a screw cap!) and it dried out before I was able to use it. Waste of $4 if you ask me.
I'm so disappointed in this product. I was wearing my white jeans that cost me over 100 dollars and I got a little dirt stain on it. I decided to stop at the super market and try the Tide to go pen. I followed the directions EXACTLY, it faded the dirt spot a little and left a HUGE yellow spot that completely ruined my pants. I've tried everything to get rid of the yellow spot and nothing has worked. I'm so upset because I just got these pants and now they are totally ruined. I've always been a fan of Tide products but after this, my view has changed. Would not recommend to anyone. DO NOT USE THIS! It doesn't do what it says, especially on whites. It will leave a huge yellow spot.
There was a small pop stain on a pair of recently purchased coral jeans. The tide to go took out the stain but also the color on my pants. I'm extremely disappointed as the pants are ruined. Don't use this on colored fabrics.
Sometimes the tide to go pens work but I tried removing a simple dirt stain on brand new white jeans for a quick fix since I didn't have time to put them in the wash. The dirt stain is gone, however now there is a large yellow stain from the pen. I have tried washing, spray and washing, and oxy cleaning the pants to get the yellow out but none have been successful. I would recommend not using this product on whites...
I dropped a blob of mustard on my light beige sweater at lunch yesterday while traveling. I reached for my Tide To Go, remembered I had loaned it to a friend, and went to the store right away and got another one. Just before I started to use it, I thought "No, not even Tide To Go can get this out!". Well, it took several applications and some time, just dabbing, rubbing, waiting, then repeating again and again, but eventually the stain was all gone!!! Totally unbelievable.......
I had purchased new cushions for my porch glider this summer, aqua and navy. I also have a small dish of bird food on the porch to feed the birds and be entertained. I noticed the squirrels on the porch when I was not out there. When I went out to sit down, I noticed a 1" brown spot on the pillow. The Squirrel must have had chili! Of course it was on the light aqua side and I wanted to cry. I decided to try the Tide To Go and held my breath. It worked!! I did one treatment, hitting the spot about 5 or 6 times with the tip, getting more of the cleaning solution on, rubbing, then blotting it a bit with a paper towel. I am DELIGHTED to tell you the spot is gone!! Thanks for a wonderful product.
I love Tide to Go, but I won't be buying any more until it has a cap that stays on. Like others before me, I find it very frustrating to take it from my purse to use only to find that it's capless and dried up. Great product but very poor packaging - and therefore a waste of money.
I LOVE TIDE To GO. It gets this dripper out of many a jam, jelly, or gravy situation! But, please, dear engineers, please design a cap that really lets Tide GO with me. It's disheartening to find your superior product capless in my purse every time I need it. With all thanks! CB
While this product works OK, I have used stain sticks that work better, but the biggest problem with the Tide stick is that the cap never stays on. I can't count the number of times I have had to find the cap and replace it. So far the stick hasn't dried out but it is annoying and I'm sure doesn't contribute to the longevity of the stick.
Although the product works well, there is a design defect in the cap. I have now bought my third product and each one goes dry before it is used because the cap will not stay on the product. If you put this product into your purse (even in a secure makeup bag) the cap falls off and the product goes dry. Next time I will buy the Walgreens generic version because the cap does not fall off.
Wow...Tide to Go was the best. My daughter and friend purchased fruit smoothies while waiting to watch our high school march in a pre bowl game parade. Her friend dribbled his blueberry smoothie all down the front of his gray sport shirt...what a mess. She pulled out the Tide to Go and wet the stain down...short while later when it dried the blueberry was gone! His mom was amazed since she had never used the product before...new customers.
I thought my shirt was destroyed!!! Sitting at work, I foolishly decided to crack open a Pomegranate and an explosion of dark purple juice went all down the front of my shirt. I thought it was a goner for sure!!! I immediately grabbed my Tide To Go stick and began to saturate my shirt with it, then put on a cardigan and hoped for the best. About 15 minutes later, I checked and there wasn't a trace of juice on my shirt. The horrible stains disappeared and SAVED my work shirt!!!! THANK YOU Tide To GO!!!
Yesterday at work I took lunch and went to our staff break room to microwave what I brought that day--a bowl of pasta and tomato sauce. When my lunch was ready I went into a co workers office to chat. As I was finishing lunch, the entire plate of remaining tomato sauce fell in my lap. I had red sauce all over my beige pants! I was mortified and did not know what to do because I work 45 minutes from home! My co worker gave me her Tide To Go stick she keeps in her desk and I used it on every stain. In literally FIVE MINUTES, it was completely gone! It was like the spill never happened! I will never be without a Tide to Go stick again!!
I have a really bad habit of dripping sauce or salad dressing down the front of my shirt, which drives me nuts, so I picked up a Tide To Go stick, and WOW! It's paid for itself several times over. It even got soy sauce off my white shirt with no trace left! My only complaint is that the cap NEVER stays on in my purse, I'm constantly fishing around for it. The cap really needs to snap or twist on to keep the pen from drying out in purses!
Tide To Go just saved me from having to purchase a new vintage style Pavel Datsyuk jersey. I had apparently been a bit careless with some soda a while back. I had washed the jersey and didn't notice it before, but I was almost in full-blown panic when I saw a few brown spots on the "D" logo. So, I figured if I was going to have to buy a new one, might as well spend a few bucks to save it first. A quick dab of the pen on the stains and a gentle rub with a cloth... the stains were GONE! I LOVE this pen and will buy again!
I use the Tide to go pen a lot, having 4 kids. But there have been a couple times I have been especially impressed with it. A few months ago while on a visit to grandma's house, the kids decided to go berry picking with grandma. One of my girls was wearing a khaki skirt and wiped her berry-juice-covered hands down the skirt.. I was amazed as I watched the dark purple stains disappear! Also, just this past week one of my other daughters ran into something at the park and ended up needing stitches on her forehead. As we were leaving the hospital and I was putting her coat back on her I realized there was still blood (now dried) down the front of light pink coat, I thought for sure it was ruined. But then remembered the Tide To Go pen in my purse.. after the To Go pen and a run through the washer, its good as new again! I love this thing!!
Carrying a Tide to Go in my purse is fantastic and it works great. The only thing that I really have a problem with is the cap constantly comes off in my purse. I try to put it in a secured smaller area, but it still comes off. Can you redesign it to correct this issue? This has happened on all three that I have had in the past year or so.
I'm so torn by the Tide to Go stick. It is a great product and works very well. It has saved many a garment from being ruined - but the design is awful! The cap NEVER stays on and it dries out way too fast! And it is not a one time, defective product that I have. I've gone through several of them, and the cap always goes missing in my bag. It's really disappointing when you need the To Go Stick, and you find it without its cap and dried out, after using it only a handful of times. If the people at Tide could do something about the cap, I’d give this product a perfect 5 out of 5!
The Tide to Go stain removers work beautifully when they are new, but after a short time, they dry out and are unusable. That makes them too pricey -- about $5 to remove a stain once or twice.
On the way to usher, wearing required white blouse, I dripped ketchup on the front while eating in the car. I used my Tide to Go when I got to the theater, and couldn't believe that the spot completely disappeared! I even took a picture before I washed the blouse for proof, but posting it isn't any option given. Thanks again for a wonderful product!
The tide to go pen has saved my life on numerous occasions. I LOVE this product. I don't think I've ever felt the need to write a review on anything, but this? OBSESSED. I've always been a fan of Tide and they haven't let me down with this little pen of magic. I've gotten out 4 day old coffee stains, pizza sauce stains, and many more. I have no idea what's in this cute little easy to use pen, but I hope they never stop making it!
Panic set in when I marked the scallops on my quilt border incorrectly in lead pencil. I had spent the past 6 months piecing this quilt, and I was afraid I would have to start all over on the border! Instead, I used Tide to Go on the marks, rinsed the piece and--PRESTO-- no more marks! Truly a stitch in time! Thanks, Tide to Go.
One night, my boyfriend decided to take me to an Italian restaurant for dinner. He wore his favorite blue shirt. The red sauce that the mussels were swimming in dripped down the front of his shirt. On the way home, we stopped at a convenience store and purchased the Tide to go pen. The stains disappeared before my eyes. We then proceeded to our favorite music club; The pen saved our nite. 2 weeks ago, we decided to go away for the weekend. My boyfriend packed his favorite white linen shirt. The very bottle of Tequilla that he also packed leaked into the shirt, leaving ugly brown stains on the front and sleeves. Again, right before my eyes, The Tide to Go pen removed the stains. He put that shirt on and we went out for the evening and had a blast. I never go out with my boyfriend without my Tide To Go pen! It is a life-saver. Thank you Tide to Go!!!
My husband and I just bought our first new car together :) .....we've had it for 4 days so the "new car" feel hasn't gone away yet. On our way to work today he was eating a breakfast bar..and some of the chocolate got on the seat (fabric) and melted :( .... No worries Tide - to - go ..Cleaned it all up !! Looks brand-new still/again.... Thank You Tide :D
I keep one at work. We are always having lunches or treats for something. Pizza is a big thing and it always falls on your best shirts and tops. Everyone knows where my Tide Pen is kept. It's a life saver.
I am always sceptical when it comes to these kinds of products, and I am usually not the one to believe that they acutally work. Well, the Tide to Go has made me a believer! After our dog got a some dark stains on our new mattress, we decided to try the pen...what did we have to loose right? I was completely convinced that the pen would do nothing to help remove the stain, but to my suprise, it removed the stain COMPLETELY!! I was shocked. I tossed the pen in my purse to have on the go. I got to work the next day, to find a co worker frantically scrubbing at a stain on her white & yellow shirt. I pulled out the pen, and it took the stain out of her shirt immediately. I am very pleased with this product, I will definitely be buying it again, and would recommend it to anyone!!
At my son's cross country meet, he got injured on the playground while waiting for the warm-up. His hand began bleeding all over his race jersey. As I arrived to watch him, the coach handed me the shirt and I bandaged up my son. Coach said, "That's probably not going to come out and you'll need to buy a new shirt." I had the Tide to Go stick in my purse, but had never used it. I saw it in the store a few months prior and thought, "As the mother of 3 boys this will come in handy one day!" I went to work on the race jersey and in 5 minutes I had removed the multiple blood stains on the shirt and gave my son a clean jersey just in time for his run. He ran a little faster, beating his previous time--I don't know if the Tide to Go stick had anything to do with that, but he sure looked better crossing the finish line!
I was an 8th grade Spanish teacher and 7 months pregnant wearing my favorite light pink button down shirt during the middle of 2nd period I got a huge craving to eat so I pulled out my bag an grabbed a couple of fresh blackberries to snack on and they squirted all over the front of my shirt noticeably on my baby bump.Some students started to smirk but 1 girl immediately piped up "Don't worry Mrs Fin my mom put a Tide to go in my pencil case...you can try it! I frantifrantically put it on my shirt hoping it would work before I went out of the room to do hall duty. To my surprise as well as the whole class the stain disappeared completely within minutes! Now I'm the mom of a very active 4 year old boy who is constantly getting me and himself dirty I always carry a Tide to go stick to fight stains. I may lose some battles...like eating vegetables wearing the shirt I want him to wear but at least Im winning the "War" when it comes to stains!
I wear a white colored uniform shirt for work. Whenever I spill food on my shirt, this amazing Tide saves the day, my shirt still looks great.
I love the product, but the cap is loose and does not stay on the pen and it dries out. I only get a few uses out it.
I'm always running around from early in the morning until late at night to sports practice, clubs, class, the library, meetings, parties, meals, errands, and more. I don't have the time (or the resources) to change my entire outfit every time I spill a coffee or a snack, so carrying Tide to Go in my backpack and desk drawer is a MUST for me (and my friends who always ask to use it!). I can't even say what a relief it is to quickly remove embarrassing stains when I have to be somewhere on time and looking presentable. THANK YOU Tide to Go for removing one more thing on my to-do list and keeping me on my A-game!
I had a baked yam in a plastic container in the bag that I carry to work each day. In transit to my commuter train the top opened inside my bag. When I sat on the train to the City I felt something wet on my lap. I looked down at my white cargo pants and saw a reddish brown stain. It was Yam Juice – though it looked exactly like coffee. When I got to work my coworker loaned me her Tide to go stick. I rubbed and rubbed the stain which had already dried in route, and within minutes the stain was gone. I was amazed how well the tide stick worked. There is absolutely no evidence that I ever had a stain. However, I recommend using a paper towel or napkin between the garment and skin. This product is amazing.
Don't get me wrong, these pens do a good job of removing stains. Except once the stain is gone, I find that all I can smell is the unpleasant smell of the to-go stick. I can't exactly place the smell; a combination of solvents, alcohol and plastic, none of which are very "fresh" or appealing. I can either choose to have an embarrassing coffee stain or an embarrassing smell on my shirt all day at work. I'll take the coffee stain.
SO Tide to go may actually be a great product, but I will never know since the entire container has leaked out into my purse because the cap keeps falling off. I must put the cap back on the thing 3 times a day and I have it sitting in a protected pocket, not just in the bottom of my bag. Perhaps it works well in a drawer or somewhere else, but then it doesn't really qualify as "to go" does it?
I love tide stick! It has saved so many articles of clothing from death! It has also saved many friends items of clothing! I always have one and I think it should be called miracle stick!
I have one in my purse, one in my desk at school, one in my cupboard at school, one in my car, one in the drawer by the phone, and probably more stashed places I don't even remember! I tell everyone I know how great this is! I have had people tell me I should be a spokesperson! My kids even request the Tide-to-go pen when they have a stain on their clothes. I have had a few problems with the cap staying on as well, but I still love the pen so much I will keep buying it. Should be an easy fix for the R&D Team, so I'll keep watching for the "new and improved" pen!!!
I love the Tide to Go pen, it's great for cleaning stains. However, the cap never stays on! I know at least 4 other people who have this problem. The pens keep drying out on me because the cap falls off in my purse. You responded to someone else's review saying you "wouldn't expect the cap to fall off" because of quality standards. But clearly, IT DOES! I won't keep buying them unless you can make the cap stay on better.
I adore this product. I am amazed by how well it works and I have recommended it to everyone I know. The only reason I rated it 4 stars instead of 5, is because of that faulty cap. This is a great product. you should send me some complementary mini tide to go pens as compensation for the fantastic word of mouth I've been spreading about your product. lol! J/k. I really love the product! thank you. Please fix the cap problem, it's ridiculously annoying.
I love this product. I tend to wear my food, as does the rest of my family, at the most inopportune times! Thankfully the Tide to Go is there to make our stains less evident. The one suggestion for improvement though is a better cap. I carry my pen in my purse and on at least 5 occasions the lid had come off and the pen was completely dry. I tried storing the pen (lid up) in the section of my purse that is reserved for pencils and pens, but it still came off.
Love Tide Products..except Tide to Go!! I have purchased this product twice. The first time the tip broke so I figured I pressed too hard. The second time I purchased Tide to Go the tip came off when I carefully tried to use on a stain. I pushed it back in and after that it just dried up!! Not a good experience and this product is expensive for doing nothing!!
Let's just say: Cherry juice + white shirt - Tide to go = saves the night. Thanks Tide for saving my Anniversay evening from being laughed and pointed at. You're awesome.
I have tried this product on a few stains with very little success. I have applied it three times to a stain recieved at lunch by mayonaise. The third I hope will be a charm? Also, the cap keeps falling off in my purse. It should fit tighter of be a screw on cap.
