OxiClean is my stain fighting secret! #Spon

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OxiClean. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating. My boys find it difficult to stay clean each day.   Meal time is the worst!   I'm not sure why my 10, 8 and 6 year olds can walk away from a table dirtier than a toddler!  Sadly, it doesn't matter if they're eating pizza or a sandwich, they'll find a way to wear part of their meals.  There will usually be a little on their face on in their hair, only when Brody is really tired, but it's mostly on their clothing.  It drives me nuts!  So far this school year it hasn't gotten any better.   Quentin chose to wear his white shirt and then drop/spill pink yogurt … [Read more...]

Purex With Crystals {Giveaway}

I received Purex with Crystals laundry detergent for the purpose of this review and giveaway.  One thing that hubby and I can count on is that there is always a load of laundry waiting to washed somewhere in this house.  Usually we have towels or blankets waiting to go for a spin in the washing machine and tumble in the dryer.     For years we've dedicated Sunday's to washing all of our dirty clothes.   One of the problems with that was by the time the last load was pulled from the dryer the boys had complied another load.  Another problem we came across is the boys have uniforms that they wear to school and they have certain shirts and pants that they prefer over others.  When that became an issue I tried to do at least a load of laundry … [Read more...]

Purex Baby {Giveaway}

Baby clothes are so cute, tiny and expensive.  I know that $15 for one outfit isn't bad, but do you really think it will last all day?   Think about how many times in one day  a baby needs a new outfit.    I can't be the only one whose children had epic diaper blow outs quite often!   Most of the time I was changing my boys' clothes because they spit up after a feeding or their diaper leaked a little.  It only got worse when they started to transition into solids!  When I only had one child, pre-treating stains and keeping up with the laundry was easy.   Back in those days, my biggest worry was do I was the baby clothes separate or with the adult clothes.    Then Quentin came along and life became crazy.    With a toddler and an infant the … [Read more...]

OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover

One thing I learned very early on is three boys equals a lot of stained clothing, furniture and flooring.   When Zander was an infant I had no idea as to how to get those nasty poop stains out of his clothing.   Don’t say ewwwwwww!  You know your kids had the occasional leaky diaper or all out explosion.   Silly me thought that getting the clothing into the washing machine right away was key and would take care of the stain.  Imagine my surprise a few days later when I finally pulled that outfit out of the dryer to only realize the stain was still there..   Only now it was a stain that I had set in by running that piece of clothing through the dryer.  When I wasn’t sure what to do I finally called my mom.   I knew she’d have an answer … [Read more...]
