Oh, how I love thee...


You really wouldn't believe how much I love this thing.
You see, I have this inordinate tendency to spill on myself. It scared me off of wearing white for a very long time. But then once I went out to brunch with a black shirt on - and ended up with icing sugar all over my chest. (Yeah, the spilling isn't helped by the fact that my boobs stick out as they do.)
Usually when I spill, I tend to be in the company of dear Robyn, and so I'd taken to blaming it on her. But now, after having dessert with my dad tonight and spilling raspberry purée down my white shirt, I realized I can no longer hold her accountable. Luckily, though, my TideToGo pen was there to save the day! Seriously, people, it's as awesome as Kelly Ripa says it is. And if you can't trust Kelly Ripa...well, never mind.
For posterity - another story of TTGPen to the rescue!! A few weeks ago, we were enjoying lunch and some carousing with playing cards chez Jodi and Micah (and sort of Heidi's too, though she's moved out.) To help accomodate our lunch, Heidi had graciously opened a new bottle of ketchup. Unfortunately when she put it on the table, it took on a life of its own and sent red goo flying in several directions - most people managed to evade it, with a splat landing on the side of Jo's chair. Kevin, unfortunately, wasn't quite as lucky. Right on the sleeve of his dress shirt appeared a lovely tomato-coloured stain. Groans of dismay filled the room! But never fear! I dashed down the stairs to where my faithful purse was stashed, and ran back into the kitchen, TTGPen in hand! I applied it, as per the instructions, to Kevin's sleeve (and sort of arm, since I didn't have another "hard" surface to use) and the stain was gone within minutes.
It's rather wonderful that such simple things can make my day! I was nearly ecstatic to be able to share it with friends! So, for those of you who weren't there, well, I just decided to share it with the whole intenets!

I'm with you! As the mother of a two-year-old boy, I buy TTGP by the crate. I'm seriously considering investing in Tide... buying stock or something. Tide and Huggies.

Are you secretly on the Tide payroll by any chance? What a rave. I guess I'm going to have to go me one...

I was just about to say that it's the boobage (like me) that's probably the problem. Sucks! I'm gonna get that stick thing since you're saying it works.

I had my doubts.

I wish I were on the tide payroll - or at least getting free samples. That'd be pretty sweet. Except one of my best friends is allergic to Tide, so if I ever touch her clothes-to-skin (doesn't happen often really) it can give her hives!!
