Take a Load off with OxiClean Canada- Giveaway

folded laundry

My day usually starts withe a load of laundry and ends with a load. Some where in between I get in folding, hanging and sorting as well as putting away. well, maybe that takes a bit longer. I have had baskets pile up of clean laundry waiting to be placed in the appropriate places. But after a while I see a sea of laundry and need a break. A small laundry day for me is three loads. That is laundry for five people, towels, clothes and linens. If it is a cleaning day or sports day for the kids, the amount is more. I hang what I can to dry and I usually wash in cold water. 

Did I mention that laundry is never ending?

I really do not mind. My kids help as much as they can with folding and sorting. But when it comes to the washing, I prefer to do it myself. It wasn’t until I became a mom that I realized how much of a chore laundry really was. So to make it easier I keep on top of it. If I let it go for one day, it is a nightmare to catch up. I watch for coupons and sales and stock up on the things I need to make life easier. 

So far we have only had a few instances where whites turned pink, sweater shrank and socks were never found. With an active family we have all kinds of laundry issues and rely on OxiClean to keep our whites white and brighten our colours. 

With Fall around the corner and many with children back to school OxiClean wants to help you take a load off. Check out the tips sheet I posted last week!
