Alright, all you married ladies. Show of hands if you married a messy man. *Waving wildly over here!* Judging from his laundry, I'm pretty sure my husband is the king of messes. He spends a lot of time on yard work and is pretty proud of how well he keeps it maintained. If only he had that much pride in keeping his clothing clean, it would be all good in the hood.
Don't even get me started on food messes. He claims his belly is just an extra table that is a magnet for food and it doesn't even phase him when greasy globs drop onto his clothing. Instead of trying to gently lift the offending blob off his clothes, he'll take a napkin and vigorously scrub up the mess while I grit my teeth because he's only embedding it further into the fabric. Here's one of his offending food stains from this week.
Exhibit A: Mustard:
Normally, I would scour the internet looking for remedies to remove mustard stains, but I don't have to do that anymore since I am now stocking Purex plus Clorox 2® in my laundry room.
Purex plus Clorox 2® is the newest stain-fighting detergent in the Purex family of laundry products. Formulated to remove the toughest stains, but it is also safe for colors and bleach-free fabrics.The detergent contains 3 stain-fighting enzymes to remove 100 stains, so you don't have to scour remedies to remove specific stains.
Purex plus Clorox 2® detergent removes:
• Starchy stains like chocolate and tomato sauce
• Protein-based stains like grass and blood
• Food stains that use guar gum like ice cream and BBQ sauce
I just put it to the test for myself on the pesky mustard stain by pouring a bit of detergent over the stain, rubbing it in with an old toothbrush, then letting it soak for 5 minutes before laundering.
I was happy to see that the stain disappeared with no elbow grease on my part, leaving nothing behind but a bright clean. Yay! Makes me wonder how much time I could have saved over the years if I had this detergent in my life back then!
Purex plus Clorox 2® is now available in most major retailers nationwide. If you would like to learn more, be sure to check out the Purex brand on their:
