The folks over at Tide contacted me and asked if I’d be interesting in trying out their Tide Stain Release product and put together a vlog to share with you about my results and opinion of the product.

They sent me a package of the product and I put it to work!

Check out this vlog of my trip to the laundry mat with AngryJulie (my first trip ever!) and the fabulous results I got.

Amazing right?

Are you still laughing about me admiring myself in the dryer glass? {Yes. That was meant to be funny.}

The Tide Stain Release got out chocolate syrup, grass stains and bar-b-q sauce.

  • Tide Stain Release (TSR) ingredients are formulated to dissolve quickly and go to work on the stain. The product works by breaking up and disintegrating soils and stains, and then forming a layer over remaining stain particles to lift them out of the fabric. This formulation for rapid dissolution attracts TSR directly to the stains allowing the ingredients time to work. <— There wasn’t even a trace of any stain left on my items.  Awesome.
  • Tide Stain Release comes in 3 forms: powder, liquid and a convenient single duo pac that can be dropped right into your washing machine. <— I used the duo pac- just dropped it right into the washer.

I’ve tried a number of other “stain boosters” and “pre-treatments”. Tide Stain Boost gave the best results, hands down.

Wanna try some for yourself?
