Like most mothers I see plenty of stained clothing as part of the laundry. My son is a pro at messing his clothes up, especially when he plays sports. He loves to slide on the grass and doesnâ€™t mind getting into lots of mud. In addition my oldest daughter is kind of clumsy, and she frequently spills coffee and other things on herself.
Recently I was asked to test out OxiClean Stain Remover, to see how it performs on the tough laundry stains my kids leave me. Iâ€™ve been actually using OxiClean for a few years now, so I was quite familiar with the product. I like it because it is oxygen-based stain fighter that is chlorine free and color safe. We have a septic system, so we canâ€™t use any chlorine bleach in our laundry. I regularly add OxiClean to my loads of kitchen towels to keep them fresh and stain free.
My son isnâ€™t playing sports right now due to some foot problems, and my oldest is away at college, so Iâ€™ve seen less stains than normal this fall. But when my daughter was planning to come home from college for a few days I figured sheâ€™d be bringing her laundry with her. Sure enough, she showed up with a duffle bag full of laundry. When it came to stains she outdid herself this time, and brought home a white skirt stained with spaghetti sauce.
I soaked the skirt using OxiClean in a soaking bin for a few hours, and then washed it with the rest of her clothes and it came out nice and clean. I wish I believed she would be more careful in the future, especially when she is wearing white! But it is nice to know that spills can be dealt with when they occur, because I am sure I will be seeing many more stains from all my children.
OxiClean also works on more than just laundry, and can be used other household stains including carpet and upholstery. It is very versatile, and works well for a wide variety of cleaning needs. You can learn more about Oxiclean at their website.
