Wash, Wear & Win with OxiClean (Giveaway)

Having teen boys means I never have to cut the grass or do any of the dirty yard work I do not want to. It means I have two strong boys to help me with all of the heavy lifting and digging that needs to be done. With Spring here and more days being warmer, we are spending a lot of time in the yard. Trying our best to make it pretty and functional for the summer.

Last weekend I got to work weeding the flower beds and put the boys to work mowing the lawn. One mowed the front and the other the back. We had a truck load of large rocks to frame the front flower bed that needed to be emptied. I could not reach them or lift many so they helped with this as well. It took the entire day but it was worth it. The yard looks amazing and I am so glad we tackled it. Sadly the dandelions grew instantly and the yard needed mowing again a few days later. But we will keep on top of it!

When we came in, everyone got cleaned up and I threw on a load of laundry. The clothes were a mess! They are covered in grass and dirt from the yard work. I was not worried, I have OxiClean. I threw the clothes in with my OxiClean and they came as good as new. Now we can tackle more yard work and other dirty projects worry free this summer.
