Grass Stains & Drinks: It’s Summer (Oh My!)

Summer is here, even if the calendar doesn’t officially say so just yet. If the laughter and screams from the backyard don’t indicate it, the laundry certainly does. Oh my does the laundry hamper take on a life of it’s own in the summer months, don’t you think? Sweat, dirt, more sweat, grass stains, food, and more dirt. I think that sums it up.

Tide Challenge

Tide removes over 100 stains in one wash, so this month our challenge was a perfect one. The kids put on some nice bright white t-shirts and played soccer, jumped on the trampoline and enjoyed some colorful sports drinks in the backyard, all while using their shirts as napkins, jerseys, and sweat collectors (ew.)

Tide 2

The innovative Zap!Cap can be used to get detergent into stains pre-wash, and it’s something I do out of habit all the time now when I come across a stain. The cap is awesome, giving you some plastic knobby-nibs (yep, that’s my name for them) to really help work the detergent into the stain (blot it first). Tide Ultra Stain Release doubles as a pre-treater and a detergent so once the shirts were ready for the wash, I added detergent to the holder in the washing machine and set it to wash, hopeful that the stain challenge was successful once again.

Tide Stain Challenge

There it is! Once again, Tide Ultra Stain Release with it’s innovative Zap!Cap got the grass and energy drink stains out, along with the dirt and sweat. The t-shirts were left stain free, and smelling good. Tide truly #GetsItOut!

  • Great posts. I was really impressed with how effective Tide was at stain removal and I really like the new cap design.

  • The challenge introduced me to a new detergent that might work better for my family. I have been using the same detergent for years, but it is probably time to change as my family has changed too.

  • I absolutely loved it! we are a Tide family already but it still impresses me to see Tide in action. #1

  • Your challenge is exactly on track with my family! Our 5 year old twins and 4 year old end up with the same stains, and I love knowing I’m already using the right product to get everything out! Thank you for the post!

  • I was very impressed on the Tide Challenge. Seeing what everybody was using to make stains and then to see that it was removed. Makes me want to try Tide. (switching from my regular brand)

  • Such a fun way to get dirty! I’m not surprised Tide has always ‘wiped out’ stains for us for years! This formula sounds even better!

  • I was really impressed with your results – I honestly didn’t believe some of the stains would come out as easily and well as they did!

  • I was impressed by the results of your Tide challenge but because I have so much confidence
    in this awesome product,I was not shocked.It’s a winner and will always be on hand in
    our house!!Thanks though because it was fun to watch anyway.

  • I like that Tide doubles as a pretreatment. Yes, summer does seem to be the season for major stains but more stains often means they are having more fun.

  • I think this months test looked like fun!! The results are excellent and it’s a great way to put them to the test.

  • This challenge was a fun one! I will definitely be using this on fudgsicle stains this summer!

  • It looks like quite the fun and interesting challenge. good to see that all the stains came out 🙂

  • I really liked the challenge. My boys manage to stain their clothing so much. It drives me crazy.

  • I thought it was a great challenge. With a couple of busy children I know all about tough stains and how hard they are to get out.

  • Having a young child, stains are a part of our life all of the time, so it was great to see all of the different stains during the stain challenge, and to see how well Tide got them out. I also love that oh so technical term “knobby-nibs” … you can never have enough knobby-nibs!

  • Wow! Glad these stains came out! We’ve ruined quite a few things already this year with Popsicles!

  • I am impressed with how the Zap!Cap works to get detergent into stains pre-wash and get them out.

  • Was very impressed and now would like to do my own with the grandkids. they can make lots of stains.

  • I need to get Tide. I have a hard time getting stains out of my clothes with the detergent I use now.

  • It mus have been fun for the kids to intentionally get dirty, and hard, as a parent, not to stop them. But Tide worked its magic and removed all the stains.

  • Wow! I’m impressed. I need tide in my life. My 5 year old boy is always full of dirt & grass stains. Tide makes it look so easy!

  • So great! I love it when I get Tide coupons because Tide is definitely my preferred brand 🙂

  • Based on your results, I think I need to try out this new Tide. I have a 4-year old and 20-month old twins. They sure know how to make a mess! 😉

  • I was impressed with the challenge and the results. I can’t believe that it all came out without nothing left behind.

  • My first thought was, what fun your kids must have had helping out with this one! I need to get some Tide for my husband’s work clothes. My daughters have an amazing penchant for getting grass stains and mud on them.

  • I think the Tide stain challenge was great! It looked like a lot of fun and I’m impressed that Tide removed all of the stains.

  • it was great. I was really surprised on how it removed some of the stains. I thinking I should go back using tide

  • Wow! Grass stains are the worst! I would love the chance to try this out on even other stains, wine, food, etc.

  • Looks like the kids had lots of fun with this challenge! And way to go Tide at getting those shirts clean!

  • I think it was awesome! I never thought there could be something enlightening about doing laundry but the Tide challenge this month sure was! Thanks for doing it!

  • My son wiped his mouth on a brand new white tee last night, I need this product! It’s good to see results before buying something.

  • I was impressed how well the stains came out in all the challenges. The things used for the challenge were everyday stains we all have to deal with so it was nice to see that Tide has developed a product to take care of them. I like the cap also because it would eliminate the need to look for a scrub brush when treating stains.

  • Love this challenge! We recently bought the Tide with Zap!Cap but haven’t tried it yet. Now that I know how well it works, I may need to put it to the test. 🙂
