Thank you Tide Company

Letter to Tide Company

Dear Tide,
I'm writing to say what an excellent product you have! I've used it all through my married life, as my Mom always told me it was the best!

Now that I am in my fifties, I find it even better! In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse. My inconsiderate and uncaring husband started to berate me about how clumsy I was, and generally started becoming a pain in the neck.

One thing led to another and somehow I ended up with a lot of his blood on my white blouse. I tried to get the stain out using a bargain detergent, but it just wouldn't come out.

After a quick trip to the supermarket, I purchased a bottle of liquid Tide with bleach alternative, and to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out!

In fact, the stains came out so well the Detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative and then my attorney called and said that I would no longer be considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband. What a relief!

Going through menopause is bad enough without being a murder suspect!

I thank you, once again, for having such a great product.

Well, got to go. I have to write a letter to the Hefty bag people.

Very funny, Marcia. (I purloined it to send along to others.) Happy

Speaking of Tide, years ago a fellow had a TV show during which he examined the claims of different manufacturers and products.

At that time Tide was the first to market its product in the box we know today. One of the TV ads focused on the strength of the box, saying it could be dropped down a flight of stairs and not break.

Not only did that guy drop the box from various heights, he tied it to the back of a vehicle, and drug it around.

The box held true far beyond expectations. Happy
