The Weirdest Product Endorsement Ever

Tide_to_go I’m a slob (No kidding?)

It should come as no surprise that I often stain my shirts (I’m careful to move the tie out of the way).

P&G has this stick: Tide to Go. Its not a pre-soak — its an "instant stain remover."

I can’t vouch that the thing doesn’t cause cancer, but it sure as hell works.

I used to carry around these portable little "Shout!" wet-nap like things, but the Tide stick is now in my briefcase, and in my desk drawer.

If you are, like me, a sloppy eater, than you must spend  $4 (or $18 for a six pack) and get one of these.


No, I don’t get paid a cent for this. But if you click on this link to order it from Amazon, I get 18 cents (So I got THAT going for me, which is nice).
