Before testing the Tide-to-Go in Denver City, reporter Suleika Acosta and I grabbed a quick bite to eat at Valencio's Hi Neighbor Cafe.
"Are you ready to order?" asked the waitress.
"I want a bacon cheese burger with extra Mayo and extra mustard," said NewsChannel 11's Cecelia Coy. "I'll take the same," said Suleika.
The Tide-to-Go is an instant stain remover that removes fresh food and drinks from your clothes, so you don't have to look like a slob the rest of the day.
Little did we know that before taking that first anticipated bite of our burgers, the ketchup bottle was an explosive device.
When I opened it, it exploded everywhere and all over Suleika. I mean it got all over the wall, the napkin holder, and my hands. But was most disheartening for Suleika was that the ketchup got all over her cardigan sweater.
"Don't cry Suleika, I've got the Tide-to-Go. It is supposed to remove stains like the ones you have on your sweater," said Cecelia.
In order to make it work, you have to press the tip for the liquid content to be applied. Then you rub the stain until you don't see it any more.
I did Suleika's whole sleeve, "it really looks like it's working," she said.
But the proof will have to come later, after the burger and after her shirt dries.
The stains did disappear and Suleika was pleased! The Tide-to-Go works!
