Wisk-Tailgate Party Experiment

Here is a recap of the new Wisk, in case you weren't paying attention on my last two posts :

New Wisk laundry detergent is reinventing the way you’ll look at stains with a powerful new formula and a red-hot bottle.
As the first liquid laundry detergent to market in 1956, Wisk® has been cleaning America’s laundry for the past 50 yearsNow, they’ve upgraded their formula, but not their price, to     tackle stains.
Wisk is bringing science to stain fighting with an upgraded formula featuring Stain Spectrum™ Technology.  Wisk’s enzymes and cleaning agents target the full range of stains on a molecular level for a powerful clean.
Wisk is introducing a powerful new stain fighting formula and a new way to talk about stains in a reinvention that is likely to be as iconic as the brand’s legendary “ring around the collar” campaign.
New Wisk® with Stain Spectrum™ Technology is engineered to target the major stain groups
New stain vocabulary:
There are hundreds of different stains but most stains fall into three major groups:
 * Carbohydrates such as milk chocolate
 * Proteins such as grass
 * Oils such as peanut butter
      New powerful stain fighting formula. It doesn’t matter which of these stains you encounter, new Wisk with Stain Spectrum ™Technology  is the solution to tackle them all
      Wisk is available in August at major retailers nationwide, such as Walmart, Target and Kroger
       * Suggested Retail Price:  $5.99 for 50 fl oz. bottles that cleans 32 loads

        I was asked to conduct an experiment with Dexter regarding carbohydrate stains.  For this quest we used ketchup.  I know how hard tomato stains are to get out of clothing so I was ready for the challenge (well it wasn't really a challenge with Wisk but you get the point).

        Here you will see, in pictures, Dexter painting ketchup on the white shirt and then my efforts to "Wisk it Away"  The shirt was too big for Dexter to wear to simulate him spilling ketchup on his shirt so I had him paint the shirt instead!


        After Dexter got ketchup on the shirt, I wiped the excess off with a dry washcloth.  I then poured on the Wisk and rubbed on the ketchup for about 15-20 seconds.  I then let the Wisk penetrate the stain for 5 minutes.  After the 5 minutes elapsed, I rinsed the shirt in warm water and presto, the stain was gone!  In fact, you will notice that I only pretreated the larger tomato stains and that there were several smaller stains that actually washed out when all the suds formed when I was rinsing the shirt!!

        Overall I am super impressed with Wisk and I cannot believe that something this unbelievable costs under $6!
