The last few weeks have been a fog. Most days I am confused, is it Monday or Thursday? I have lost interest in making lunches and often forget to sign papers for the kid’s classes.

I am ready for summer

I know I am not alone

Waking up to the day to day routine is boring and I am a tired mom who desperately wants to sleep in. I enjoy having my children home and look forward to the lazy days of summer. I asked my daughter if she would like me to sign her up for camp or swimming and she said no, she would like a break. So she too is feeling it.

School year burn out

In our home, summer can not come soon enough

I am looking forward to BBQs, swimming at the beach, fishing at the lake, hiking with the family and camping. We do a lot of entertaining in the warmer months and spend most of our time outdoors. It is a lot of fun but it can also get messy. Lucky for me I have Tide on hand to help me tackle the toughest messes.

**Introducing Tide Ultra Stain Release**

*Tide Ultra Stain Release helps fight up to 99% of everyday stains and is designed with 6x the stain fighting power when compared to the next leading competitor.*

*It’s also the first Tide laundry product to come with a pre-treat Zap!Cap that can be used to get detergent into stains pre-wash to enhance stain removal . This unique feature makes Tide Ultra Stain Release a 2-in-1 detergent with both a pre-treater and a detergent. The cap features two textures: bristles for deep down scrubbing and a flatter portion to spread detergent around, enhancing stain removal.*

Want to see the stain-fighting power for yourself? Below are a few fun ideas that may cause stain issues for you this summer. Tide wants you to have fun and not worry about stains. They are here to help 🙂

**Orange Juice **

Fresh squeezed orange juice is an indulgence not many of us have time for, but it can be so easy! Treat yourself to this delicious addition to your breakfast table, and get your kids involved by helping with the squeezing! If pre-squeezed juice is more your thing, you can still do the challenge with your favourite carton.

__Stain issues you may have: __

- Fresh oranges
- Tropicana Orange Juice

**Summer C****elebrations**

Celebrate summer by enjoying a simple and delicious layered dip. Start by filling a glass bowl with Tostito’s Queso Dip, followed by a layer of sour cream, then top with diced fresh tomatoes and enjoy! No need to worry about spilling, Tide Ultra Stain Release will get the stains out!

__Stains you may have: __

- Tostito’s Queso Dip
- Sour Cream
- Fresh tomatoes

**Spring Sports**

If your kids are involved in sports, you know that outdoor activities start to pick up this time of year. The weather gets a bit warmer, and sports leagues are starting in most neighborhoods. Soccer, baseball, running, football and other smelly sports that make everyone dirty. Celebrate the athlete in your life this summer by getting messy with grass stains and Gatorade!

__Stains you may have: __

- Grass stains
- Blue or Yellow Gatorade

**Long Weekend Fun**

To celebrate the warm weather long weekends, celebrate with cold treats! Some of summer’s biggest offenders when it comes to stains are dripping icy desserts, but never fear! Tide Ultra Stain Release will make clean up a breeze.

__Stains you may have:__

- Slush Puppy (red or blue)
- Popsicle (green)
- Minute Maid Lemonade

**For best results, use the following guidelines:**

- Before you start the cleaning process, remove any excess stain debris from the garment, wet a cloth with water and gently yet firmly blot the fabric to dilute the stain
- Where needed, pre-treat the stain using Tide Ultra Stain Release with its Zap!Cap as a pretreatment
- Then, wash garment using warm water on your regular wash cycle
