Disclosure: I am a P&G mom ambassador. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and have been compensated to put Tide to the stain test. The opinions on this blog are my own.
A day devoted to laundry – seems a bit strange since almost every day is laundry day for moms right? Believe it or not, today is National Laundry Day. I’m not sure if we are supposed to celebrate all the loads of laundry we get to do, or take a day off from washing, but I thought it would be the perfect day to share a stain challenge the kids and I took on a few days ago.Recently the folks at Tide asked me if I would test out Tide Ultra Stain Release, and I was game. After all, we’ve been using Tide pods for ever, and our kids are pretty good at getting dirty. We’ll be taking on three stain challenges in total this Spring, the first of which was sidewalk chalk. We are no strangers to arts and crafts related stains at the Pink Chai house. I can’t even begin to count how many tee shirts we’ve lost to chalk, glue, and glitter, so this was the challenge for us.
The kids and I put on our white tee shirts and headed out to draw on our sidewalk. This is one of our favourite things to do in the spring and summer, and we get really into creating super detailed drawings.
When we were all done with the play portion of the challenge, I brought the tee-shirts into the laundry room. I wasn’t convinced that we had got them dirty enough to test the stain fighting power of Tide Ultra Stain Release so I gave them a good rub with chalk.
Tide removes over 100 stains in the wash, but if you are worried about an extra stubborn stain, you can use the Zap! cap to pre-treat and remove stains. So what was the verdict of the stain challenge?Not a stain in sight! Even after I purposely rubbed extra orange and red sidewalk chalk into our tee shirts, they came out perfectly white. That’s something to get excited about.
I’d love for you to put Tide Ultra Stain Release to the test and tell me what you think, so I’m giving away a P&G Fabric Care gift basket including Tide. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below telling me about your toughest stain challenge.
