Wisk with Stain Spectrum Technology Lab ~ Tailgate Party Experiment

Posted by Jenna | Thursday, October 07, 2010

Although summer may be behind us, Fall is here and that means tailgating and grilling for a lot of people! Whether you're a die-hard sports fan or just someone who enjoys the beautiful weather this time of year....being outdoors and enjoying a burger hot off the grill with family and friends is fun for everyone! With food like this often comes lots of yummy condiments. Although great tasting, things like ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce are messy (especially with little ones), and are not easily washed out of clothing. At least that's what I thought, until I had the opportunity to do my very own Wisk Lab Tailgate Party Experiment.
Over the past couple of months, I've shared with you about Wisk and how they're reinventing the way we all look at stains. Its powerful Stain Spectrum Technology formula helps tackle a full range of stains, including:

Carbohydrates - like chocolate milk, ketchup, BBQ Sauce, etc
Proteins - Grass, Eggs, Baby Formula
Oils - Peanut Butter, Ranch Dressing, Olive Oil

Last month I had the opportunity to test and see firsthand, just how well Wisk with Stain Spectrum Technology fights protein stains like grass stains! To my surprise, it worked amazingly well. If you missed our experiment, be sure to head back and check it out! I saw how well it worked, but when I learned we were going to do an experiment involving a brand new white t-shirt and ketchup, I have to admit, I was a little skeptical. However, I am still learning what works and what doesn't, and when it comes to stains like this...I am open to any help I can get!

We were a sent a 'Tailgating Party' kit with the tools necessary to see just how well Wisk Laundry Detergent fights carbohydrate stains. The package included:
  • A brand new, and VERY white, t-shirt for Kaelyn
  • Basting Brush
  • Small hamburger press
  • Ketchup
  • Wisk Laundry Detergent (which we were sent for the last lab experiment)
The instructions for the lab experiment were simple:

1. Let your assistant paint a swoosh on the new t-shirt using the ketchup provided

2. Remove excess ketchup and pre-treat stain with Wisk Laundry Detergent (covering the entire stain) ~ with the help of my assistant, we poured a little more than intended...but it still did the job ;)

3. Scrub/rub the stain for 15-30 seconds and let sit for five minutes to allow the Stain Spectrum Technology to penetrate the fibers.

4. Hand rinse under lukewarm water until there are no suds remaining on the fabric

With the help of my very excited assistant, we were ready to get started! Once again, I thought the easiest way to show how well, and fast, the Wisk with Stain Spectrum Technology works was to make a quick video of the actual carbohydrate stains experiment.

As you can see, the Wisk took out the carbohydrate stain in no time! As I was removing the excess ketchup after Kaelyn painted her swoosh, I have to admit that I was a little nervous. Wiping it seemed to only make it worse. Even though I had seen how well Wisk worked on protein stains, I couldn't help but wonder if it would really take out a ketchup stain completely. It had to leave a little stain, right?! The answer is, no! Rubbing the stain with detergent for 30 seconds and letting it sit for five minutes really did allow the Stain Spectrum Technology to penetrate the fibers and do its magic. When it came time to hand rinse the t-shirt under lukewarm water, you could see the results almost instantly! This t-shirt is now as good as new again!

You can click to enlarge. The 'After Pic' was taken right after the hand-rinse. The stain was completely gone!
I am very impressed with how well Wisk took out this stain, and how easy it was to do! It's one thing to watch a commercial and see amazing results, but to actually use the laundry detergent on an actual stain and see it disappear right before my eyes is quite another! Wisk continues to impress me, and is convincing me more and more that my days of guessing how to fight stains are over for good!

Buy It: Wisk is now available at major retailers nationwide (such as Walmart, Target and Kroger) for a suggested retail price of $5.00 for 50 fl oz. bottles that clean 32 loads.
