Tide Pens are one of the best inventions in recent history. Seriously. I ate some peppermint ice cream this afternoon, and just realized right now, about four hours later, that I spilled some on my shirt (my shirt is a bunch of bright colors so it was easy to blend in). But regardless, I had like a huge neon pink stain on my shirt that was completely dry. I pulled out my tide pen that i keep at my desk and went to work. Not even a minute later, I kid you not, the entire stain is gone. Fucking amazing.

LOLWTF's girlfriend carries those in her purse and they sure do come in handy. Although, don't use them on wool or cashmere, they'll leave a wet-spot looking stain.

Wait are they like those white markers that end up leaving a dark spot after a while or does the stain wash out completely?

I wanted to buy one of those but wasnt sure. I was talking about those magic markers where it can with a white marker that could erase the other marker's color on the paper.

I used one of those on a white cotton polo shirt. The stain it left behind could not be washed out, so I threw out the shirt.

Wheres the beef?

6 hours after posting... the stain is completely gone and left no residue. i think it might not work quite as well with a solid color shirt, especially white. but seriously...theres nothing there and i didn't have to even touch it with water.

I really like these. They are also fun for getting crafty.

They work pretty well on a lot of things, I've noticed, but sadly not grease. My wonderful Kool-Aid shirt has a spot that won't go away :(

Hey boourns, to get grease out of a shirt just cover the grease spot with baby powder! Leave it over night and the powder will have sucked up the grease. I got a lot of motor oil on my Ulitmate Warrior shirt from 1989 I was devastated, it took two tries but i got all the oil out.
