The pen is compact and easy to carry around, making it perfect for on-the-go stain emergencies. The design is sleek and the cap securely snaps on, ensuring that the pen won't leak in my bag. I also appreciate that it doesn't have a strong chemical scent like other stain removers. But what really sets this pen apart is its ability to remove tough stains instantly. I've used it on everything from coffee spills to makeup stains and it has worked like magic every time. The pen has a soft scrubber tip that helps to work the solution into the fabric, making it even more effective. One of the best things about this pen is that it doesn't require any water or additional cleaning products. I simply apply the solution and let it dry, and the stain is completely gone. This saves me time and hassle, especially when I'm out and about. Another great feature of this pen is that it is safe to use on most fabrics, including delicate ones like silk and wool. I've never had any issues with discoloration or damage to my clothes, which is a huge plus.

Always in my back pocket

I keep a tide to go stick in my bathroom, in my car, and In my purse at all times. Tide to go sticks are conveniently sized for travel and storage, however they contain enough product to last what seems like a lifetime. Tide to go sticks are extremely effective, even on stains like black coffee on a white teeshirt.

Having a pen in my purse has been a life saver! It’s easy on the go, and is small enough I can throw it in a purse, the car, or the laundry room basket. It does a great job at getting out stain right in the moment, instead of waiting until I get home

Works well for the person on the go
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

Let me tell you, I’m messy. I can’t go a day with spilling something on myself, on the table or on the floor. And when these spills happen, Tide To Go is my saving grace. Gets majority of stains out with leaving unwanted marks on my clothes. Plus, at pen size it’s perfect to store on the car, in a purse, in a gym bag or in your desk (or have one at each place). Definitely recommend these.

I’ve never had any issues with this product but recently I decided to use it on my new white shirt, to remove a coffee stain. It removed the coffee stain but then left me with a bigger yellow stain. Very disappointed. I applied water on the stain to see if it helped but nothing. Seems counterproductive that I use a product to remove a stain and I’m left with a bigger one.

Tide Pen
StarStarStarStarStar5/5

The Tide To Go Instant Stain Remover Pen is a handy and compact solution for dealing with unexpected stains on clothing while on the go. This pen-like stain remover is designed to quickly and effectively treat stains, helping to prevent them from setting in and ruining your clothes. One of the standout features of the Tide To Go pen is its portability. It's small enough to fit in a purse, pocket, or travel bag, making it convenient to carry with you wherever you may need it. This makes it an excellent tool for those moments when spills or stains happen when you least expect them. Using the Tide To Go pen is simple and straightforward. You just need to remove the cap, press the tip of the pen onto the stained area, and gently rub the stained fabric. The stain remover solution is released onto the fabric, and you can see the stain lifting as you rub. It's important to follow the instructions on the packaging for best results. The Tide To Go pen is effective at treating a wide range of stains, from coffee and food spills to ink and more. It's particularly useful for dealing with stains before they have a chance to set in, which can greatly improve the chances of successful stain removal. While the Tide To Go pen is generally effective, it's important to note that it may not completely remove all types of stubborn or set-in stains. In some cases, you may need to treat the stain multiple times or follow up with a more intensive cleaning method. In summary, the Tide To Go Instant Stain Remover Pen is a convenient and useful tool for tackling stains on the spot. Its portability and ease of use make it a valuable addition to your stain-fighting arsenal, especially when you're away from home. Just remember that while it's great for quick and minor stains, more challenging stains may require additional treatment.

The pen is a very good and useful idea yes, but my personal problem with it is that afterwards you have a huge wet spot on your clothes. It’s not very practical for bright clothing.

The Tide Team
We're so sorry to hear about what's happened to your brand-new white converse. Our Tide-To-Go Pen was designed to help remove those unexpected stains, and not cause them, however, there are some ways to remove the stains. While we're unsure of what methods you have tried already, to prevent this in the future, please dab the treated areas with a damp cloth to remove any excess Tide to Go solution left on the fabric. To remove the stain, simply soak the converse in a solution of 5tsp of Tide/gallon of warm water for 30 minutes. Make sure it remains completely submerged, and then wash it with a Tide Plus Bleach Alternative. This should help, but we'd like to help you with this. Please call us at (800) 879-8433.

I've used this on white upholstered fabric to get rid of cat dirt stains and it was amazing. So when my partner spilt his hot black tea on our new white and grey nylon carpet, after I'd poured cold water on it to dilute it (which didn't seem to do much) I reached for carpet cleaners and none of them worked. By the time I remembered about the Tide Instant Stain remover I figured I'd 'set' the stain with all the carpet removers - and other cleaning things like white vinegar and baking soda - that I'd already used. But NO! IT WORKED! It took a few days but it slowly started disappearing. I had to give it two applications but we got there in the end. Thank you Tide, you saved the day!

This product is AMAZING!!!!! It's perfect for the little stains /or the stains when your away from home!! Tonight I was vacuuming down on my knees when I stood up I had a sticky spot on my knee. Even though it looked like grease, I'm not sure what it was, bc it smelled too. But, I couldn't stop vacuuming right away bc there was some glass on the floor and not only did I not wanna step on it, I couldn't let my dogs step on it. So I had to hurry finish. By the time I got to go treat it several minutes have passed. But, I figured hey this will put the pen to the ultimate test. I only pressed the pen on the spot did NOT rub it or anything look you can barely see the spot! The spot was dark brown, very close to black. But, the it actually started to disappear before my eyes!! Once I rub the stain I'm positive the rest will come out! This product is well worth the money!! And I've had this pen for over a year haven't used it before this (that's why it's so faded lol) I could kick myself in the butt for it!!

This product should not be sold, used this on a couple small spots on a brand new white hoodie- seemed to clean it. However after washing the hoodie and wearing out tonight noticed two yellow spots where we used this tide stick. Very frustrating as this was a brand new very expensive hoodie. We would have been better off leaving the stain alone.

02/01/2023
The Tide Team
We're sorry you've found a yellow stain left behind after using the Tide To-Go Pen. Clean laundry is the heart of what we do, and our products are very effective when used as directed. Since the garment has already been washed, we recommend that you pretreat using Tide Liquid (pour Tide on to cover stain and let set for 20 minutes). Then, rewash in warm water with Tide before drying. To prevent a stain in the future, dab the treated areas with a damp cloth to remove any excess Tide to Go solution left on fabric, as explained on the packaging. If you need any further assistance, please give our Tide Team a call at 1-800-879-8433 Monday -- Friday from 9AM -- 6PM EST.

Sitting in my laundry room crying right now. I had the tinniest spot from blackberries on my brand new $50 pants and used the tide pen. I all the sudden noticed it was stripping the color so I stopped and threw them in the washing mashine quick to get it off. Well all that did is cause it to spread and now I have a baseball size area of my jeans that is completely stripped of its color 😭 We don’t just have money to go buy new jeans and I’ve been waiting a while for these and now they’re completely ruined 😭 Tide do you refund for ruined clothing by your products?

Must be used Instantly
StarStarStarStarStar3/5

The best results for this is if you use this right Away. It does require quite a bit of rubbing and scrubbing. The pros of this: it’s easy to use and pretty straight forward with its “push down to get the cleaning solution out, scrub with the included brush”. It doesn’t work on ink stains and I feel like accidental pen stains on my clothes are the most common.

I got coffee on my hoodie so I used a ride stick to fix it. It didn’t remove the stain, it lightened the color of the fabric where I placed it and there is a noticeable thin blue line around the lightened color. I tried to fix it with water and it made the blue line spread out even more. It’s a large and very noticeable section of my hoodie that has been ruined. Thanks a lot tide I literally can’t stop crying

Something like this is the last thing we want to come up, but you'll be happy to know this isn’t permanent damage to your hoodie. To remove the spot, just wash the hoodie again using the hottest water safe for the fabric and the recommended amount of Tide. Please reach out to us with the results of this at 800-879-8433, and we'll be happy to see the next steps we can take towards making things right for you!

We appreciate you taking the time to write about your hoodie. Our Quality Team works hard to prevent this from occurring, so we’re sorry to hear this! It may be helpful to know that it in some cases you can prevent a stain in the future by dabbing the treated areas with a damp cloth to remove any excess Tide to Go solution left on fabric.

Unable to remove Blue Gel Ink

Unfortunately for me the product did not remove any Blue Ink stain from a Blue Ink Gel Pen Stain that leaked in my white shirt pocket. No difference at all. Firstly, I followed instructions, removed the shirt placed in cold water and applied soap, scrubbing with a cloth. This did not remove much stain at all. I then used toothpaste on stain, and this removed the majority of the stain however stain could still be scene. I then used tide to go pen on stain, applied twice, removed with cold water and soap after rubbing in, however unfortunately in my case the stain remained the same. Thee was no difference at all. I had most success just using toothpaste. Perhaps I will have better luck next time, however in this case it was worth a shot to try, but I had better results using toothpaste.

We're so sorry to learn about your shirt, and we thank you for letting us know. To get stains out of any clothing with our Tide-to-Go pen, remove the excess stain residue, then, press the tip of the pen onto the stain several times to allow the stain remover to move onto the spot. Rub the tip gently across the stain to remove it; if needed, press the tip again to add more liquid and continue rubbing gently.

The Tide Team
We're sorry to hear you didn't have the experience we expect with the Tide to Go pen. We hope it helps to know, it works on many stains, but no product will remove all stains. The Tide To Go pen works best on fresh food stains (tomato juice, grape juice, ketchup, BBQ sauce, coffee, etc.) but does not work well on non-food stains such as ink, blood, grease, grass, mud. It won’t set any stains so if the stain still remains, pre-treat with Tide detergent and wash. If the item isn’t washable, take it to the dry cleaner. We'd like to get more information to help you, as well as get more information for our Quality Team. When you have a minute, please reach out to us at (800) 879-8433.

I just found the flower girl dress my daughter wore in my wedding December 1998. It got shoved in the back of a closet and forgotten. I now have three grand daughters that love to dress up. When i pulled it out I remembered that something had dripped down the front at the reception. Never got tended to. Pulled out the Tide To Go pen. It instantly brought out a chocolate smell, probably ice cream. Then the spots completely disappeared! I am stunned. Twenty-three years later those chocolate stains came instantly out of cream colored satin!

These easy to use pens take out stains pretty well, and as someone who seems to spill a lot of food on their clothing, I keep these handy wherever I go. You just push down to get some of the liquid out, then scrub it by kind of coloring on it with the clear liquid. Most stains come out pretty well.

Works 9/10 Times
StarStarStarStarStar4/5

I find that these pens can remove most or all of a stain about 9/10 times. It’s really dependent on the type of material you stain, what the stain is, and how long the stain has been sitting for. The best way to use it is to let the tide solution sit then blot the stain with water/wash the garment. Also put something absorbent underneath the material so the tide pen liquid doesn’t touch you or another part of your clothes. I have saved a lot of clothes with these pens, I normally keep one on me when I’m going out. Another way to use them is to whiten your shoes! Works super well, just do a little spot test first if you are worried about ruining a certain material. I have saved my beloved vans using a tide pen (removed clay stains)

I had 4 small drips of butter hit my t-shirt. Since it is a Carhartt I don't want stains on it. I purchased one of these pens and have used it 3 times on the spots and it has not removed anything. I don't like giving products low ratings, but this truly isn't a good product.

Wayne, we're so sorry this happened to you. Butter on your Carhartt shirt is very frustrating. The Tide To Go pen is especially useful on food stains, so this isn't something we'd expect to happen. When you get a moment, give us a call at (800) 879-8433, so we can learn more and help you further with this.

The Tide Team
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: Remove excess residue from stain. Twist and pull to remove cap from pen. Press the tip of the pen onto the stain several times to release some stain remover onto the stain. Rub the tip gently across the stain to remove it. If necessary, press the tip again to add more liquid and continue rubbing gently. Make sure to wipe up any remaining solution from the stain and launder as soon as possible. If you have any questions or if we can help further, please give us a call at (800) 879-8433.

Thanks for your review, Bmont! We're sorry you've had this experience, but don't worry, the stains aren't permanent. You can create a soak solution by adding 1/2 use (approx. 5 teaspoons/25 mls) Tide® per gallon of warm water in a plastic bucket. Allow the garment to soak for up to 30 minutes, weighting the item with a white towel to keep it totally submerged. Then, re-wash in warmest water setting with Tide.

Instead it left a ring on my dress.... I tried getting rid of it with hot water but it's still there, try steaming it, it's still there...

Even though it looked like grease, I'm not sure what it was, bc it smelled too. But, I couldn't stop vacuuming right away bc there was some glass on the floor and not only did I not wanna step on it, I couldn't let my dogs step on it. So I had to hurry & finish. By the time I got to go treat it several minutes have passed. But, I figured hey this will put the pen to the ultimate test. I only pressed the pen on the spot & did NOT rub it or anything & look you can barely see the spot! The spot was dark brown, very close to black. But, the it actually started to disappear before my eyes!! Once I rub the stain I'm positive the rest will come out! This product is well worth the money!!

I keep one of these in every purse. Luckily Costco sells them in a 5 pack! With kids it’s so easy to get stains on every article of clothing but this helps pre treat before washing and resolve stains while we’re not at home! Definitely recommend.

Is very handy while at work for stains on my nursing scrubs. I use this to lighten then stain then toss in washer when I get home to get rid to stain entirely.

Works great! Keep one in my purse for whenever. Tide go to! Win win. Will buy again whenever I run out:

I love that I am able to keep this in my purse! I am a very classy person so it is very important to have a stain stick on hand at all times. This is the only one that I will use as it is a great price and does the job every single time.

Love my tide stick so much. As someone who is prone to spills, this thing is literally my life saver. Gets most basic stains out and is super easy to carry around at all times. Highly recommend that everyone has a tide stick.
