How to get ketchup out of your little sports fan.



This week, Luka and I did another Wisk science experiment. Luka was my helpful assistant, and Central Casting (aka Daddy) agreed that he was right for the part. He has had alot of practice applying ketchup to the fronts of his shirts.

Last time it was protein stains we tackled. This time, Wisk wanted us to try it out removing ketchup stains. Tailgate Chef Mommy (that would be me) and my super-messy-but-oh-so-funny boy (that would be Luka) said, "Go Team!". Ketchup is a Carbohydrate Stain, one of the several groups of stains that end up on children's clothing. Ok, mine too. Ketchup is not a discriminating condiment, it'll ruin just about anyone's favorite team jersey.

As you can see from our video, the Wisk removed the ketchup stain from Luka's Team Isotope shirt. (Isotopes are real, and they are from Springfield, by the way. They are parodied in The Simpsons this week as a little league team The Isotots!) And we didn't even run it thru the washing machine. We just rinsed it in the sink. I was so excited, I started dousing a whole pile of what were designated clothes-I-will-not-wear-out-of-the-house with Wisk. Fixed my sweatpants, 2 t-shirts, and Luka's not-so-white t-ball pants? They're white now. And that red dirt and Capri Sun was ground in from game after game of drawing in the dirt in the infield, and then squirting each other after the game.

There are hundreds of different stains but most stains fall into three major groups:
* Carbohydrates such as ketchup (Basting is a contact sport, don't ya know.)
* Proteins such as grass (obviously from tree surfing)
* Oils such as peanut butter (and Olive Oil, and PAM, and WD40)

Wisk says it's new powerful stain fighting formula doesn’t care which of these stains you encounter, it's new Stain Spectrum™ Technology will tackle them all. I'm really starting to believe it.
