I love the Carbona Oxy Magic Stain Removing Pen. Not only is it inexpensive, but it works great. I carry one of these in my purse, leaving on in my laundry room, and even one in my desk at work. It's very easy to use, and put onto stains. It's not like the Tide pens where you have to squeeze the liquid onto the stain. It works much like a pen where you rub it over the stain. It doesn't get everywhere and it's not messy either. You don't have to worry about it rubbing off on anything because it dries pretty fast. I'm usually a messy and clumsy person, so the Carbona Stain Removing Pen really comes in handy. It really does work to completely remove the stains. After I put the stain remover on I throw it in the wash, dry it, and the stains are gone. I've gotten a wide variety of stains like oil, ketchup, sauce, pen, soda, coffee, and it lifts the stains off fast and easy. Same with my boyfriend as well. It seems like when he wears a white shirt he gets stains on them almost instantly. I pull out my Carbona Pen, dab it on his shirt, and as soon as we get home I throw it in the wash, and then the stains are gone. I honestly prefer this over the other name brand stain removers that I've tried. Now I buy this whenever I can find it online because I can't find it in any stores near me, but that okay because I love it, and it's the only thing that keeps my clothes from getting ruined. Performance I find that as long as I put this on a stain as soon as I notice it, it completely gets rid of the stains off of my clothes without damaging them. There hasn't been an item of clothing that the Carbona couldn't get a stain out of. Scent There isn't a scent to the Carbona Stain Pen that I can notice.
