New Purex plus Clorox 2 Detergent Review & Giveaway

Have you heard of the new Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent?  It combines the bright clean of Purex with an extra powerful boost of Clorox 2 stain fighters.

Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent contains 3 stain-fighting enzymes to remove 100 stains including chocolate, tomato sauce, grass, blood, ice cream and BBQ sauce just to name a few.  It is safe for colors, and bleach free.  It also comes in two fragrances - Original Fresh and Sunny Linen.

As a mom of six young children and owner of both a dog and a cat, I see my fair share of stains in our home and on our clothes.  Stains that I tend to see on a regular basis include sweat stains, grass stains, dirt/mud stains, spaghetti night stains, artwork (paint, colors, etc.), and grease (when David works on the car).

With all the rain paired with the fact that it is baseball season, I tend to be tackling grass, dirt, and/or mud every few days with C's uniform.  In the next week he has one practice and 4 games scheduled - that can be a lot of washing.  C's team motto is have fun, play hard and get dirty!

Thankfully, Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent doesn't let me down when it comes to these stains.

Stains that I tend to see on occasion but not regularly include sicknesses (vomiting) and even accidents (bed wetting and/or feline accidents as our cat ages).  Last week C was diagnosed with an ear infection and he couldn't seem to keep anything down.  E went to bed one night forgetting to put on her pull-up and woke up to a wet bed.  Molly, our cat, found a blanket on the floor and decided not to walk to the litter box.  Yes, thankfully these scenarios aren't common around here but I think many people can relate to one or all of them. 

I will spare you photos of laundry with vomit and accidents on them but I will tell you that Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent worked in these tough situations as well.  Not only did our laundry, blankets and bedding come out clean but they were smelling fresh - which in these situations sometimes is tricky.  What are your toughest stains that you deal with on a regular basis?

Here is a stain fighting tip for the week:  pre-treat tough stains by rubbing some Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent into the fabric and letting it sit for 5 minutes before washing.

Ink can be so hard to remove that it may not be worth the effort. Any time you get to the stain before it dries, it is much easier to remove.

My best tip, other than pre-treating, is to get to the stain before it dries.

Grass stains are pretty tough.

With my husband it is collar dirt/sweat from working outside. For me is likely to be oil from cooking as I forget an apron.

Think my main tip is to treat it right away. This maybe just soaking it in cold water (like with blood), or rubbing in some stain remmover, rolling it up to set a while.

My toughest stains are baby food stains on my daughter's clothes.

LauraJJ said...

Some of the toughest for me are mud, grass stains from the baseball field, and spaghetti sauce!

Jessica said...

My best tip is to soak your clothes before you wash them.

LauraJJ said...

My best stain fighting tip would probably be to get them off and in the wash asap.

My tip is to pre soak your cloth first

Grease and grass stains are my enemies.

My tip is to soak in soapy water as fast as you can before washing.
