Shout Wipes, Portable Stain Treater Towelettes - 12 ea
About this deal
Removing a stain can be a complicated, multi-step process depending on the type of fabric you’re working with, the type of stain, how long it’s been sitting, and the stain remover you have access to. We could’ve spent months and months staining different types of fabrics with different substances, leaving them for different amounts of time and tallying up extremely granular, in-depth results for every possible stain scenario. If fun is a factor, then Delta Carbona Push & Wipe wins by a landslide. These 1.5" circular pods contain two chambers, one to keep the 9" x 8.6" wipe dry and the other with the cleansing formula. When you’re ready to use it, push down on the perforated portion, which will reveal the wipe and release the liquid. Give it about 10 seconds and watch it grow, then remove and use. How often do you stain your clothes? If it’s often it’s most likely while you’re outside the home, and a portable stain remover pen would be best. If your stains are further and fewer between, a spray for home use will suffice.
As my mom watched me purposefully create stains, she looked doubtfully at the lineup of stain removers. Her skepticism only gave the lineup of products an even bigger challenge as we started going down the line to test them out. Things to rememberWhen I pulled out the pen-style stain remover—just a wee bit bigger than the Tide pen at 5.5" with 20 millimeters in each—my mom immediately had brand recognition. “This one is famous—I think a lot of people use OxiClean for regular laundry,” she said. But moments later, she flipped sides. “Ai yo! This one doesn’t remove anything at all,” she said. “Oxi is no good.” Note: for the OxiClean stain removing powder we gave it its own t-shirt since it’s designed to be used as a pre-soak and added to a regular laundry cycle. Shout ® Wipes are made portable, so you can use them to remove on-the-go stains right away. Wherever stains happen, Shout® Wipes are there. Just use a Shout Wipe and go! - Disposable—just throw the used cloth away.
And a bonus tip from mom: “Wash out stains as soon as you see them. Go the bathroom right away and scrub it out before it settles into the fabrics,” she says. “Then when you get home, wash it properly.” The type of stain and how it sits on the particular fabric means that no two solutions may be the same every time, so treat each incident individually. After this incident, I decided it was time to find a brand I could trust. And who better to test the products with me than good ol' mom—despite being a klutzy kid who left every dim sum meal with a shirt full of sauce stains, all I remember is perfectly pristine clothes thanks to a little magic touch from my mom.As we’ve mentioned above, we separated stain removers into two categories during this test: portable and at-home. We measured both based on the same criteria, taking into account that they’re not made with the exact same objectives in mind. An excellent product. They really do get stains out of your clothing. I always keep some in my bag when out, to wipe any spills up when eating or drinking.
