There is one truth that you can be absolutely 100% sure of in a house of seven: There will always be laundry. Just when you think you’re getting caught up, there’s another basket-full ready to be washed. The laundry in a household with 5 children is literally never-ending.
So I know laundry. I also know that I don’t have enough time to go through every single article of clothing and inspect each item for stains…which often results in stains being missed until it’s too late.
I hate that!
Laundry Tip #1:
Wash your clothing often. Dirt destroys clothes. It’s abrasive and can weaken fabric, fiber by fiber. Dirt also attracts fabric-eating insects such as moths. Antiperspirant and airborne hair styling products can also build up over time. These products yellow as they age or after being exposed to heat. Regular washing will prevent this build-up.
I was recently sent a sample of Shout® Free. Shout® Free has zero dyes, zero fragrance and 99% natural ingredients: “Just the smell of clean and nothing else”. I remember my mom using Shout products on our laundry when I was growing up. Shout is a trusted name in our house and I ALWAYS have some on hand.
Now I just need to get in a better habit of checking and treating stains before they have been on the clothes too long.
Laundry Tip #2:
Don’t try to remove a spot by rubbing hard. You’ll destroy the texture of the material. Your first step should be to remove any raised stain particles gently with a dull knife. Then blot lightly with a white paper towel before using a stain remover.
Shout is offering downloadable coupons on their Facebook page for Shout Free and Color Catcher with Oxi. They are also offering two Better in Bulk readers
