Take the OxiClean Challenge & Love your Clothes Again #OxiCleanChallenge with Giveaway

Back to school is just around the corner! It is a bitter-sweet time here for us as I love the routine and feeling of normal, but miss the kids being around 24/7. Like most families, we buy new items for the kids to have for back to school. Clothes for school and clothes for Fall. My kids sprout up every summer and seem to outgrow their clothing so fast. Along with the start of a new school year comes basketball and cross-country as well as some other activities that guarantee the kids will get dirty. My children spend a lot of time playing sports and hanging out outside all year-long. As you can imagine, this really does a number on their clothes.

Sometimes grass, dirt and even blood stains have ruined my kid’s clothes. It is not an affordable option to toss them out and buy again, especially uniforms since they need to be returned end of season. I do what I can to keep their clothes looking good for as long as possible.  I have learned over the years to pre-treat clothes, soak when possible and use products I trust to get the job done right, the first time. OxiClean is a brand I have trusted with my family’s clothes for many years. They help keep my whites bright and my colours looking good.

After all I want to keep my children active in sports and when they come home dirty, I know they had fun! You may think little kids are messy, but that is nothing compared to teens. Bigger kids just mean bigger messes! My boys are working and playing hard outdoors and I need to do what I can to keep their clothes looking good!

When I was recently presented with the OxiClean Challenge, I put my children’s clothes and my own to the test. I was sent a kit to test out and share my results. I used the stain fighting power of OxiClean exclusively for one month on our toughest stains to keep my kid’s clothing stain-free, and looking like new longer.

The kit included everything I needed to fight stains in my laundry;

  • OxiClean™ MaxForce™ Foam Pre-Treater blasts away even the greasiest of stains the first time with its foaming action. Spray and treat for up to 7 days for those tough, stuck-on stains.
  • OxiClean™ MaxForce™ Spray – combines 5 types of stain fighters to help you get out more of your toughest dried-in stains the 1st time!
  • OxiClean™ White Revive™ Laundry Stain Remover gets the toughest stains out the 1st time and whitens 40% better than bleach with powerful whitening and brightening agents that won’t damage clothing.
  • OxiClean™ Colour Shield Laundry Stain Remover has tough stain fighters paired with colour-safe brighteners to guarantee your colours look new and radiant longer

In very little time I was seeing amazing results. Below you can see the before and after of a few items I washed. Each one was treated with OxiClean before washing.

Now when it comes to white socks, I have no idea how to keep my kids from getting them dirty. My youngest is always running around without shoes, climbing in dirt and playing on grass. As you can imagine her socks pay the price. Sometimes the inside of her shoes are dirtier than the ground she is walking on.

I added OxiClean White Revive to this load of socks. I let them soak a bit before washing. As you can see the socks were extremely dirty and normally a lost cause. Below is the after, from just one washing.

I was seriously impressed with OxiClean and the ability to get the toughest set in stains clean. OxiClean works on a wide variety of stains and gets the tough stains out the first time. Moving forward I will remember to always use it from the start. All month-long I added OxiClean products to my laundry and I was so happy with the results.

Since I was seeing such great results with my children’s clothes, I wanted to try to revive a shirt I loved but thought I ruined. One of my fave shirts I almost threw out is below. It is a mix of colour with white and is a silky material.

This one had gravy spilled on it. The splash pattern made it a bit tricky to see but I knew it was there. I used OxiClean MaxForce Spray to pre-treat.

I was so happy that the colour was not faded and my white part was clean and bright. The gravy was all gone. I had previously washed this shirt 3x with no success.

I can see why OxiClean is the #1 Stain fighter Brand in Canada. With powerful pre-treaters to powerful in-wash stain fighting products OxiClean is designed to be colour safe for all your needs. Make sure to follow label instructions for best results when doing laundry.

    One of my sons loves to ride his BMX and greases the chain to keep it working well but the grease gets all over his pants when he’s doing tricks. To make it even worse he insists on wearing khaki pants when he rides so the stains really show up.

  10. These are the products I use too. My husband loves the new pods too. They are excellent and work to treat stains while whitening and cleaning too. The stains we have here are similar to yours and we use resolve often but that white revive is great for whites. You described my daughter’s socks too which makes me laugh. People sometimes don’t think girls can be hard on clothing well mine are really tough on socks and jeans too.
