Which Detergent Works on 100 Different Stains? #PurexPlusClorox2 + #Giveaway

The Purex® brand provided me with a sample of Purex® plus Clorox 2® detergent in exchange for a product review. However all the opinions expressed here are my own.

Okay, I think I'm pretty sure I begin 99% of my posts with:

"Because I have three little girls under age of 5....."

You may tire of hearing it, but the majority of my life experiences right now center around something having to do with my three little tater tots, so that's what I write about. 

Can you guess what one of the things I spend the most time on currently is?

That's right, laundry!  With three little girls (there I go again...) that enjoy multiple wardrobe changes in a mere hour, and refuse to wear aprons or bibs, you can imagine how much laundry we go through.

So, we need detergent that works...and works the first time because in California with our water shortages, we can't afford multiple rinses!

Have you ever used a laundry detergent that might as well have just been water, because it did absolutely nothing to clean your clothing?

Or, the opposite?  A laundry detergent that was so harsh, it turned your colors three shades lighter and added a year's worth of wear in just one wash?

I have.

Purex® plus Clorox 2® is not one of those, and I'll show you just what I mean.

Not 30 minutes after I received a sample of this Purex plus Clorox 2, stain fighting detergent, my 3 year old dropped her hot dog, yes, doused in ketchup, down the front of her shirt - no kidding. 

So, I put the detergent to the test, took some photos of the BEFORE (above) and threw it in the laundry to see if these color safe stain fighters really worked. 

As you can see, the ketchup stain was lifted off completely!

I was very excited to see how well the Purex plus Clorox 2 worked, without soaking or scrubbing or bleaching.

Want more? I've got more!

Now, the pretty little pineapple shirt above, was brand new, and somehow my 2 year old got to the cherries from the Farmer's Market before I could grab her and completely stained the front of her tank top.

I honestly thought there was no way cherry stains would come out - but
Purex plus Clorox 2 totally worked on the cherry stains like they were a piece of cake. 

The BEFORE/AFTER photos were taken in two areas of the house, so there is some lighting differences - however again the detergent worked really well on this colored shirt and only lifted the actual cherry stain. 

Be sure to check back with me next week to see how well Purex plus Clorox 2 did at tackling waffle, syrup and fried chicken grease off this red shirt my toddler is wearing!
