Fight Tough Stains and Keep Colors Bright plus GIVEAWAY!



I have two kiddos, one of which is a three year old boy, and a husband who works as a railcar inspector and comes home with all kinds of mess on his clothes that completely ruins his clothing and anything you attempt to wash with them. That's why I need a detergent that is super tough on stains, but won't ruin or fade my colors. Purex plus Clorox 2 combines the gentleness and fresh scent that I  love about Purex detergents, and the tough stain fighting action of Clorox 2 and it'scompletely safe on whites as well as colors. It's bleach free and works on 100 different tough stains!




You can pre-treat stains with the detergent or go straight to washing with it. My son, in just a few short days, managed to cover himself and his clothes in orange popsicle juice as well as ketchup and mustard, and macaroni and cheese. When he was done marking all of his clothes for life, he spilled chocolate milk all over his bedding. I've seen these types of stains before and wash after wash, even with pre-treating, they just faded the stains. They were always still visible, and the clothes were ruined. Thrown into the "play clothes" pile, which is now far larger than the "good clothes" pile. 


I'm a mom and a wife who had just accepted that my son and husband's clothes were a lost cause. But as laundry day neared...

Okay let's be real here, isn't every day laundry day? It really feels like it....

I pulled the clothes out that had been sitting in the hamper for a few days, waiting to be laundered, the stains just sitting there teasing me. At this point I would be ready to just toss them and accept the loss, but I pulled out my my bottle of Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent, my magical solution to whatever my kiddo's clothes can throw at me. I didn't pre-treat. I wanted to see how powerful this stain fighting really was. I just used it in the wash the way I normally do. When the cycle was finished, I pulled out my son's clothes and inspected them for any signs that this detergent failed me. And I assumed it surely would. If you're a mom to a boy (or multiples!) you know what I mean. not only were the stains gone, but I swear it actually brightened the colors and the clothes were soft and fresh smelling. All things that never happen to boys clothes. 


I love that with Purex, I get more bang for my buck. It's important to me to have detergent that does the dirty work and attacks those tough stains, but doesn't ruin my colored clothes and my bank account!

Purex plus Clorox 2 is available now in two fresh scents:
Original Fresh 
Sunny Linen (my favorite!)

  2. I have to wear white long sleeve dress shirts to my job in a restaurant. My cuffs on my sleeves I have a terrible time with even though I spray them with stain remover, bleach and wash.

  5. Ink is the toughest, but if you can get to it before it dries it is manageable.
