Getting White Right With Tide(R): According To A Recent Survey, Effective Stain Removal Without Damaging Fabrics Is A Top Concern When Doing Laundry, Especially When It Comes To White Garments. (Graphic: Business Wire)

According to a new survey 1 released by Tide®, effective stain removal without damaging fabrics is a top concern for consumers when doing laundry, especially when it comes to white garments.

Moreover, using conventional treatments like chlorine bleach or home remedies do not offer the expected results: Hispanic consumers who use bleach for their whites have experienced their garments turning yellow and dingy (32 percent), while 80 percent of those surveyed felt that home remedies (like vinegar, lemon and salt and dish soap) work only on some stains.

The toughest stain to take out? It is food, as per 56 percent of Hispanic consumers surveyed, followed by dirt (21 percent). Make-up stains came in third place, with 13 percent. Interestingly, when it comes to breaking the “rules of wearing white”, eating greasy or messy food is the most common activity that people do while wearing white garments, followed by putting on make-up.

“Laundry can be a complex process, as consumers not only look to getting their garments clean but also need to address concerns like stain removal and ensuring their fabrics stay looking new for as long as possible,” said Raquel Rozas, P&G Brand Manager for Tide

“Understanding what consumers need is at the core of our research and development process to create products and solutions that make the laundry regimen easy and effective, like Tide Vivid White + Bright and Boost which help remove stains without the damage that chlorine bleach or other treatments can have, while keeping whites looking like new, wash after wash,” added Rozas.

Other survey findings show that, when it comes to caring for their white garments, a majority of consumers (68 percent of Hispanics and 63 percent of non-Hispanics) want a detergent that both whitens and brightens and leave fabrics looking like new.

Tide Vivid White + Bright and Boost are designed to give your laundry that extra boost for the peskiest of stains, and they are safe to use on colors because they don’t contain any chlorine or chlorine-containing bleaching agents.
