Every Friday night in Poland, thousands of students return home from University bearing an unpleasant gift for their mothers: bags of dirty laundry. To address this problem, we developed a new product: a series of self-washing t-shirts with tearful Moms. The print on each t-shirt contained Tide washing powder. By simply tossing the t-shirt into the washer, the mom’s tears of despair disappeared and cleaned the load. This lesson taught students that washing their own clothing is easy with Tide. The T-shirts were distributed among the mothers whose kids were about to leave for the studies away from home.
