Tackling oily stains with Wisk

The following post was commissioned by Wisk.

For this last Wisk experiment (you can see us battling protein stains here and carbohydrate stains here), Fiona got to do one of her favorite things: put on make-up.  One of the many reasons I don’t like wearing lipstick is that I always manage to get it on my clothes.  Sometimes it doesn’t even happen directly: it goes from my lips to a glass, and I manage to brush up against it with my sleeve.  Oily splatter while cooking, damage from the school’s popcorn machine, the oil from pizza cheese dripped on my pants…yeah, I’m a slob, and could really use something that tackles oily stains.  They’re the worst.

After Fiona was done putting her mark on the towel, I put some Wisk on it and rubbed it in for about 30 seconds.  Then I rinsed the detergent out, and voilà, no more lipstick!

It’s been fun doing these little laundry experiments with the kids.  They’ve definitely taught me how to fight stains that might have otherwise ruined clothes, especially since I don’t always get around to washing them for days or weeks.  But even I can take a few minutes to rub a spot out before any permanent damage is done.

I’ll end my tenure as a Wisk Beta Blogger by showing you this new Wisk commercial, touting the stain spectrum technology – I hope you enjoy it!

    @Jean: Thanks! Yeah, the kids are always asking to help me with the blog, especially Jake. Fiona is sometimes a bit shy about being on camera, but she really wanted to put on the lip gloss. :-)

    I’ve never even heard of wisk! I will definitely have to give it a try. I agree, If i could do this really quickly, it would probably save a lot of clothes!
