Let’s face it, when you have kids you have stained clothes, it might be your clothes or their clothes, but they are going to get stains! Last week we were on vacation and I forgot to pack my trusty stain stick that I usually take on trips. When we returned to my mother-in-law’s house, I had clothes with stains that had been set in for days. We’re talking strawberries, taco sauce, macaroni and cheese, and other UFO’s (unidentifiable filthy objects).
Up until last year I was a Spray nWash Dual Action Power stain remover snob. I LOVED that stuff because it got stains out and worked great. A few months ago I noticed that it wasn’t on the shelves anymore. Then I noticed that Spray n Wash had partnered with Resolve (I think) and had just the basic stain remover. I was a little disappointed, but didn’t want to try all of the stain removers again to find the best one.
When I started the laundry at my mother-in-law’s, I noticed she had the OxiClean stain remover spray. I have to admit I didn’t have much faith in my in-laws choice of stain remover. I mean they are in their sixties, what do they know about stains? They are super neat, never spill food on themselves, or wipe sticky fingers on their pants! I sprayed all the stains, but I was a little sad, thinking that some of our clothes were probably ruined.
To my huge surprise the OxiClean stain remover got out every single stain! I could hardly believe it when I pulled the clothes from the washer. Even clothes that had been sitting for seven days with the stain came out totally clean. I felt like I was in a commercial when I pulled the clothes out of the washer because all the stains were gone!
