Wisk – The Science Behind Stain Fighting

A couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to the new Wisk with Stain Spectrum Technology. At that point, I hadn’t gotten to test out the new Wisk formula.

Now, that’s all changed. I’ve gotten to test out the new formula, and I am blown away by the results.

Wisk asked me to hold an experiment, and sent me some items to complete that experiment. I enlisted my son Jace to help me, and he was thrilled! He couldn’t wait to don his lab coat and goggles and get to work.

For the experiment, Wisk sent us a protein stained cloth, a bottle of Wisk and a few tools to complete our assignment. Not sure what a protein stain is? In my last post, we talked about the different kinds of stains:

Stains come in lots of types, but they usually fall into 3 major groups:
     * Carbohydrates (milk chocolate)
     * Proteins (grass)
     * Oils (peanut butter)

A few of the other stain groups include…
     * Bio (blood)
     * Bleachable (coffee)
     * Particulate (dirt)
     * Synthetic (ink)

The protein stained cloth we were sent was a grass stain – a stain that I deal with on a daily basis around here. My kids are always coming home with grass stains on their knees, and even their behinds! They are a pain to get off! I can’t even tell you how many hours I’ve spent scrubbing their pants, only to be disappointed when they still didn’t come off in the wash. I was really excited to try this experiment and see how well the new Wisk would handle the toughest grass stains.

Take a peek at our experiment:

I really wish I had let the Wisk stay on the stain just a bit longer before mixing it around, or that we had swished it around more while we were taping. While you can see an obvious difference in the video, after the camera shut off, I put the cloth back in the water and swished it around more. After that, the water turned green – really green – and it removed almost all of the stains from the cloth. You can see the difference here in these pictures:

I’ve been using the bottle of Wisk since I received it, and I have to tell you, this stuff is fantastic! Where we live, we don’t deal with normal dirt or mud stains. We have red clay down here, and it turns clothes orange. I have turned more clothes into “play clothes” because of the nasty orange stains that get left on the kids clothes, but I was in awe of how well it worked on these stains! The kids clothes will last a lot longer now, and I won’t be moving so many outfits into the “play clothes” box.

Wisk is available now at major retailers nationwide such as Walmart, Target, and Kroger for the Suggested Retail Price of $5.99 for a 50 fl oz. bottle that cleans 32 loads.
