The Tide Buzz
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

It's called Tide "Buzz" ultrasonic stain remover.   It's supposed to remove visible stains before your clothes are even washed.  In fact it claims to remove most stains.  But does it work?


To be a member of the "laundry club" there is one requirement...you must have dirty laundry!


Owner, Dan Hodnett thinks he's got the secret solution to get rid of most stains...but we may have just found his competition.




We want you to try out 'Tide Buzz" ever heard of it? 




No, never heard of it.


Tide Buzz claims it's combination of the specially formulated tide cleaning fluid and ultrasonic energy waves helps loosen and remove the stains.


First we need...well, stains!




How about if we put ketchup on a pillow case?

Do you want to try a little coffee?

How about magic marker

We'll try even some ink!


Now we're ready.




We're moistening the stain.


The product is easy to assemble, no batteries required, just plug it in, put in the special formula, turn on the ultrasonic gadget, and put the stain catcher underneath the ketchup.




Actually, it took it out pretty good!




How about the coffee?




It does look like it came clean though.




The ink and magic marker?




It did take some of it out...


But not all of it.  As for dan this whole process is just way too much.




I don't know, it just seems like an awful lot of work.


And money.




You could put dish liquid on it, rub it with a towel and it will come out too!


This is one product that didn't make the cut.


In all fairness, the Tide Buzz ultrasonic stain remover did remove the ketchup and coffee stains.  But as Dan said, so will most spot remover's that cost half as much.  Tide Buzz retails for about $70, not to mention buying the replacement pads and liquid cleaner....for those reasons, Dan gives the product a 7 out of 12.
