OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover {Review}

A six year old boy + football practice = a laundry challenge. Technically, a six year old + any activity usually equals a laundry challenge. From football, to art projects, to food stains and more, my laundry battles never end! Times that by three kids in total, laundry is a it's own full-time job, but recently OxiClean, one of my favorite stain helpers has been reformulated to help with this daunting task.

ace and friends thoughts 

the challenger.
the stain fighter.

the battle begins...

Filled the bucket with OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover and began the soak process.

I went with the pre-soak method for the best possible stain removal. Pre-soaking was simple, just fill the soaking tub with warmest possible water along with the appropriate amount of OxiClean powder, add the tough stained clothes and let the oxygen bubbles work, work, work! The bubbles immediately began to form as I added in the OxiClean powder. 

I soaked {c's} stained disaster for the recommended 4-5 hours. I removed it from the soak tub and noticed that the majority of stain were already gone. I immediately threw it in the washing machine and washed it as I normally would with my other laundry. I didn't scrub or rub the remaining light spots.

the results.
Amazingly the sweatshirt was clean! A stain removing cleaner that ACTUALLY works. In addition to using OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover as a pre-soak, I've been also using it as an additive to a variety of other loads. Typically there are stains on the kids' clothing that I miss and OxiClean has helped eliminate those stains. A serious lifesaver!

What I REALLY like is that OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover can be used on a variety of fabrics and surfaces, both indoor and outdoor such as upholstery stains as well as hard surfaces in your kitchen or bathroom. Final thoughts: Stubborn stains don't stand a chance against OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover. Definitely does it's job. Try it for yourself with a coupon from the OxiClean's website.

Thank You for sharing, after a campout I have some tough cleaning to do on the kids clothes, especially our 4 year old. I have a few carpet spills from juice that I am going to give it a try on.

I accidentally threw a pink baby outfit in with a load of whites. And most of them were hubby's white undershirts for work. Whoops. Bleach didn't fix the pink spots, so I am going to have to try this to see if it helps any!
