No fuss prep for guests with OxiClean #WowOxiClean

About a week ago my washer broke and as much as we tried, it was un-fixable. So we have been making trips to the laundromat until we get a new set here. If you have not been to a public facility lately to do laundry, let me tell you, it is not fun! They are not always the cleanest and usually quite busy. So sorting and fussing is not very easy. You are limited for time as there is always someone waiting for the machine too!


I had a huge pile of laundry to wash. Both colours and whites. But way more darks and colours than whites. So I ended up throwing it all in together in a few machines without sorting *cringe* I was not really worried though, I had OxiClean. I used my regular liquid soap and tossed in a couple of scoops of OxiClean with the wash. Everything came out brighter and whiter than you would expect. No running or fading from mixing either.  This made my kids happy as they had thrown in a few white T Shirts.


I also tossed in some towels, a tablecloth and other laundry from the last few days. Stains on our laundry always include sweat, dirt and oils. Sometimes makeup and juice stains will be on our laundry as well. So far we have not had a stain that OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover could not get out.

Look how white my whites came out!

To add OxiClean to your laundry:

  1. Begin filling washer with proper temperature water for your load (see garment care tag).
  2. As with detergent, add OxiClean to the wash water BEFORE adding laundry.

To pre-treat (for more powerful stains like wine or blood)

For extra stubborn stains, pre-treating with or soaking in a concentrated solution of OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover can provide amazing results.

  1. Remove as much of the excess stain as possible.
  2. Mix OxiClean powder with water (as directed on packaging) until completely dissolved.
  3. Apply solution to stain, making sure to completely saturate the stain. Rub and wait up to 10 minutes. Do not allow to dry on fabric.
  4. For laundry, wash as normal with detergent and OxiClean.
  5. For non-laundry water-washable fabrics and surfaces, blot well with a white towel. Rinse item thoroughly and allow to dry.
  6. Repeat as required.

  27. Oxy is awesome. I use it as a paste and clean so many things with it. I am sensitive to a lot of cleaners and their smells cause my skin to break out in hives and burns my nose. Oxy doesn't do that. I also like to use it in my laundry to boost the cleanser.

  28. Sounds like I need Oxiclean in my life but I don't think it's available here in the Philippines.
