Both Tides removed the mustard and Dijonaise. Tide With Bleach Alternative left a white mark where the mustard had been, but otherwise didn't fade the red shorts. The ketchup-stained white shirt was a different story. Tide With Bleach Alternative removed the stain completely, the plain Tide didn't. Yvonne concluded that the stain-removing property of each detergent was similar, but recommended that folks buy Tide With Bleach Alternative, since it costs the same and does additional work.
Yvonne used some old clothing for the experiment, made two stains on each item, and let the stains sit overnight. She smeared red basketball shorts with mustard, blue denim jeans with Dijonaise, and a white T-shirt with ketchup. The next day she filled three 60-ounce containers with cold water and a cup of Tide and three with water and Tide With Bleach Alternative. She soaked each stained piece for 30 minutes in each solution, swished and lightly scrubbed each item, ran them under running water for three minutes, and then let them dry overnight. She said she wasn't surprised with the results.
