Stains, Stains, everywhere are stains! School is back in, and I assure you my daughter's wardrobe states that she is clearly a kindergartner. Her adorable new school clothes come home every day with a new stain: paint, marker, crayon, grass, lunch, mud, and my personal favorite--"MY GOODNESS, WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?" I have tried just about every stain treatment available, and while some have been better than others, they are all pretty darn expensive! If I'm paying top dollar, then I want top results.
We were given the opportunity to review OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover. I have never used OxiClean products before, so I figured,"What the heck, why not!" I have honestly never been a fan of infomercial products or gimmicks. I always had reservations whenever I looked at OxiClean at the grocery store because it was one of those 3 a.m. ads. I would pick it up and then just put it back, thinking it would do what all other infomercial products do and leave me crying into a spaghetti-o stained Easter dress. So, I don't know that my expectations were high going into the washing machine armed with oxygen power.
Whatever the expectation was, I was very pleasantly surprised by the stain-lifting muscles the OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover flexed on those nasty sock stains (by the way, what do children and husbands DO to their socks to make them that black on the bottom?) and the sports stains on my son's baseball pants!
I figured, being a frugal mom, that if this worked so well on clothes, that why not see if it worked as well on other things around the house. My towels get terrorized by my husband, and apparently no matter how many times you explain the difference between a good towel and an everyday towel, husbands just don't get it! The good news is, now I have a line of defense, because the OxiClean Stain Remover really made them bright again and kicked that mystery stains butt.
It was fairly easy to use: pre-soak, then wash. Not rocket science, or too difficult. Which is what a helpful product is supposed to do; make my life easier! It is not too expensive either; I found this product for about $6 at Wal-Greens. I will definitely stop being so prejudiced against infomercial products, as this one was really a good one. I will also be stocking up on some more OxiClean products next time I am out.
