Has this happened to you, you’re on your way to a meeting and you spill coffee on your shirt or blouse? Of course you don’t have a spare shirt with you. This recently happened to me and I ended up stopping at Target and bought Shout Wipe & Go to clean up the spilled coffee on my shirt.
The makers of this product claim it will lift away stains in an instant. But will it? Of course I had to try it out before you buy it.
On the package, the Shout Wipe & Go Instant Stain Remover is supposed to lift stains from car interiors, carpet and all fabrics. I tested out the wipes on a shirt with some coffee spilled on it. The directions are very simple, they say to remove excess stains first, then grab a Shout Wipe & Go wipe and start from the outside of the stain and work towards the center.
I also tried it on a shirt with some wine spilled on it, and did the same process.
When it came to stains left for a while, I did not test the Shout wipes on stains that were set it, only stains that occurred within 30 minutes. On the back of the box, it says for best results treat stains shortly after they occur.
When it came to the Shout Wipe & Go getting rid of both the coffee and wine stains, these wipes did the job with no problem.
So based on my results, if you spill something on your shirt, couch or carpet, get to a Shout wipe soon after it occurs and these little wipes actually did the job. They totally helped me out of a messy situation.
You can purchase them at any store that sells laundry items. I bought mine at Target and paid $6 and it came with 12 sheets. It will cost you about 50 cents for each stain you get. So, I give these wipes a total thumbs up.
On a side note, I have also tried Tide to Go Pen and that also worked on getting rid of stains right away.
