Purex Plus Clorox 2 Has Amazing Stain Fighting Powers & A Giveaway

What's the toughest stain you had to take on this week?



  I know a lot about fighting stains, I have four boys, five if you count my husband. As a mom to boys, I have learned that messes are a part of life. My younger boys rarely stay clean for more than five minutes. I joke that I can tell what they are for lunch at school just by looking at their shirt. Who needs a napkin when you have a shirt? Now my teen is a different story when it comes to dirty clothes. Dirt just seems to find him as he either is running in the dirt with his cross country team or busy fixing something with ROTC. Don't get me started with the messes in their underpants or the blood from all those bloody noses from allergies . Laundry day means mom fighting the stains on their clothes.

  It is a good thing I have Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent in my laundry room. This smart value Purex detergent  has an extra powerful boost of Clorox 2 stain fighters to tackle all those messy stains on my boys clothes. It works on 100 stains, is safe on colors and is bleach free. This wonderful smelling detergent contains 3 stain-fighting enzymes to remove stains like chocolate, tomato sauce, grass, blood, and even BBQ sauce. I just love how clean and fresh smelling my clothes are after using Purex plus Clorox 2.

 The other day the teen got BBQ sauce on his shirt after eating ribs. I told him to rub some Purex on his shirt and he was amazed that it started to work almost right away on the stain. Once the shirt was washed, the BBQ sauce stain was gone. I wish I had pictures of that before and after. Since I don't, I recreated the stain on a white shirt so you can see how this amazing detergent works. I also decided, for fun, to add ketchup too.



  Here is the before picture of the BBQ sauce stain and ketchup stain on the shirt. I placed it near the tag so we can identify the area later. I let the stain set in for 10 minutes, as in real life kids don't tell you about the stain on their clothes right away.




I then rubbed some Purex plus Clorox 2 and the stain with a toothbrush and let it sit for 5 minutes. I tossed the shirt into a load of clothes with a capful of the Purex and started my washing machine.



I am amazed, the stain is gone and the rest of my clothes are clean and bright.



So tell me, what is the toughest stain you had to take on this week? Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent comes in two wonderful scents, Sunny Linen and Original Fresh. Look for this stain fighting detergent at your favorite stores like Target, Walmart, Kmart, and more.
