I used to be the type of parent who would try to keep their child's clothing clean of any sort of debris or food particles. However, I've slowly accepted that kids are messy and they will come home messy from school and/or grandma's house. Since it's not truly economical to toss out each article of clothing that arrives with a stain, I needed to find a solution quickly before the kids started running out of things to wear!
It was time to put Oxiclean™ Versatile Stain Remover to the test. I seriously have tried many different ways to get rid of already set in stains as well as semi-fresh dried stains and nothing has been truly 100% been able to make the clothing pieces "new" again. OxiClean™ is an oxygen based stain fighter that's chlorine free and color safe. Although I usually just run a combined load, recently I've been brought to the attention that two entire loads came out pink so it's time to separate and get to work.
What's neat is that you can use OxiClean™ Stain Remover in every load or pre-treat by letting it soak in for 1-6 hours. I recommend the full 6 hours for the truly tough stains. A beach bucket is a nice size to soak their small clothes rather filling up the entire laundry room sink. Most of the stains that are on the kids' clothing are from food. Kenzie also has stains from art class and random "dirty knees" from the classroom floor and playground/grass. Rather than exert my frustration on the ruined piece of clothing (and sadly occasionally Kenzie) I now soak it in OxiClean™ Stain Remover - just mix with water until completely dissolved and let the magic happen.
A bit of science: when the OxiClean™ formula is activated by water and releases bubbling oxygen power for safe effective cleaning, it boosts your laundry water pH to improve your detergent's cleaning ability while the ingredients help rinse soils away. You can just add a scoop to your regular laundry load for a refreshing clean!
The OxiClean™ White Revive™ Laundry Stain Remover is kind of awesome. No more using bleach to combat dingy white shirts or other articles of clothing. I have a somewhat weird conniption about bleach and that it will burn my skin if I allow it to touch. So I was stoked to test this out and this worked beautifully on towels, Hubs' shirts, kids clothes and more. Everything is so bright and fresh without any funky chemical smell.
Do you have any tough to tackle stains? Have you tried OxiClean™ Stain Remover?
