Tide Stain Warriors Challenge 1 #GetsItOut

Contrary to popular belief, we are now in the midst of spring. I know, I know. The weather could have fooled me, too. Regardless of the persistent sub-zero temperatures, my family and I took on our first challenge as part of the Tide Stain Warriors campaign - spring planting in the great outdoors. Since this is definitely not my forte, I decided to leave this task up to my husband and the kids.

Given that we are hosting an upcoming celebration in our home, my son insisted on picking out new planters to brighten up our living space, including the lovely flower pot seen below. He was most eager to get his hands dirty and help his dad re-pot the plants. I can't exactly vouch for his new shirt, though.

As part of the Tide Stain Warriors campaign, we received a set of white cotton t-shirts. Obviously, bright white and soil brown don't mix very well but I watched on as my son wiped his dirty hands on his new shirt and I didn't even cringe. You see, we also received a bottle of Tide Ultra Stain Release to help tackle everyday stains. And since Tide removes over 100 stains in one wash, I knew I had nothing to fear.


Following the instructions for pretreatment, I coached my son on the process by having him remove any excess stain debris and then dilute the soil stain by blotting the fabric with a wet cloth. Next, we pre-treated the stain using Tide Ultra Stain Release and the top of the Zip!Zap cap to spread the detergent and gently rub it into the fabric.

Finally, we threw the shirt in the wash using warm water on a regular cycle. The end result?

His shirt looks as good as new! We'll see how long it lasts, though, as we have a couple of more challenges to undertake as part of the Tide Stain Warriors campaign. We hope you'll follow along and stay tuned for a special giveaway featuring a P&G Fabric Care Gift Basket!

  10. I am someone that hasn't used Tide in years as it doesn't come on sale like other products, however, I may just need to try it again to see if the value is there.
