This is my first Tackle It Tuesday and I’m taking on a lot – laundry after I’ve been sick. My husband is amazing and does so much around the house, but last week was so busy that he barely had time to breath. I spent a lot of time in bed sick or sleeping. And the laundry, it did what it always does. It piled up.
By Sunday I started to feel better. Well enough to even go shopping – some of the best medicine around. I picked up a bottle of ARM & HAMMERÃ‚® Power Gel Laundry Detergent for 62 Loads. I could not find the Essentials detergent so instead I bought the one with OxiCleanÃ‚®. I’ve used OxiCleanÃ‚® before and loved the way it removed tough stains. With this detergent, I’m able to use it as a pre-treater. Not having to buy something extra makes me happy.
When I opened the bottle, it smelled really clean. It’s not overpowering, but just made want to get those nasty clothes done. They came out without a fragrance, which is important in my family since my daughter is allergic to lots of things. Most important, they came out clean. I didn’t need to pre-treat anything with these loads but I already know the power of OxiCleanÃ‚® and believe that it will get out almost any stain that comes my way.
The bottle was heavy for me to lift since it was full, but there was a smaller size that I chose not to get. I do wish that the cap lines were easier to read and that instead of saying, “Use more for heavily soiled clothes” there were more specific directions.
Back to my tackle, I did 6 loads of laundry today. Folded and hung them up. Later on I’ll put them away. Sorry for not having any stains to review but I guess since I was sleeping a lot, the biggest stain culprit was off duty.
And here’s some photos to share:
Just some of the dirty laundry. There was a whole lot more.
Clean, folded laundry – a mother’s delight.
So I put my folded laundry on my couch. What’s it to you?
One savior of the day, besides me.
