Wisk: The Then and Now of Fighting Stains

Do you ever sit around and watch old commercials onYouTube? I do.  I think they’re quite hilarious and honestly, they take me back to my childhood.  Sometimes I show the old commercials to my kids and they get a good giggle from watching.  Of course then, I have to hear the questions like, “Did they have electricity when you were a kid?”.  haha

Here’s an old commercial from Wisk. Wow, does that take me back! The thing back then was ring around the collar. It would have been a terrible thing for a woman’s husband to show up to work with stains on his collar. It would have been a reflection of her ability to keep house.

I know that my mom always kept a bottle of Wisk in our home. We referred to it as “the good stuff”. Many times we would use the other detergents to wash with and then we’d get out the Wisk for the tough stains. We’d apply the detergent directly to the stains and rub it in.

Detergents have come a long way over the years. Check out this new detergent from Wisk. I’m excited to try it.

I think moms today have just as many stain worries as they did back then. Kids will be kids. Children will still get grass and chocolate milk stains on their clothes. Many times I feel badly for getting on to my kids so much. I’m just so worried about ruining another outfit with their stains. Hopefully, the new Wisk with Stain Spectrum Technology can help me to put my worries aside and let my kids have a good time.

What do you think . . . do you think the stains you tackle today are the same as the stains your mom faced?

    Hi Karen! Thanks for this post. For my entire married life i’ve been buying ERA most of the time because this is the scent my husband is used to and it’s his preference. For stains i have been buying stain removers since my son was born. I might have tried Wisk before and now with this new ‘technology’ maybe i will give it a try… let me know your experience! I would be afraid to use it for my own clothes though – my office clothes… i hope the won’t fade the fabric..
