Of Babies and Husbands

I have a husband and I have a scootchy, army crawling almost toddler. They both get into plenty of messes. Between my husband’s garden and CrossFit workout clothing, he makes Purex plenty of laundry. I’m always looking for ways to get the stink out… I gave up on stains on those a while ago. But now, with an scootchy baby and a house full of hardwood, I have a new challenge… getting nugget’s clothing looking like new.

I’m a big fan of Purex but truth be told, lately, I’m a big fan of anything I have a coupon for… which has not been Purex, of late. However, the folks at Purex recently sent me their newest stain fighting laundry detergent – Purex® plus Clorox 2 – to try.

The crib sheet took a beating.

Like new! I couldn't even find the stain!

And wow, it’s like they just knew what was coming… shortly after I received the box, my son got a nasty virus… let’s just say it was coming out both ends and I was doing A LOT of laundry. When he has had tough stains in the past, I have had to wash his onesies twice sometimes or at least stain treat them before… not with Purex® plus Clorox 2! WOW! They came right out and it was safe for colors.


The poor jammies! The knees are destroyed!

I was thankful because all nugs wanted to do when he was sick was snuggle and I’d rather snuggle that baby boy than do laundry any day. I’ve checked it out in the store and it’s a pretty smart value. Price is good and the quality is excellent.

What is the worst stain you have had to deal with? What’s your secret laundry weapon?

  1. My worst stains are when my daughter eats blueberries. My best tip is to rinse the stain really well right away and then soak it till you’re ready to wash.

    • Oh great one! I can’t imagine the carnage of blueberries! My little guy likes blackberries but we are still in the ‘one at a time’ phase. 🙂 Good idea to soak until you wash, I will have to remember that!

  2. Ink is the hardest stain to remove, but if you can manage to get to it before it dries, it will come out. I find that many food stains will rinse out with water if you get to them right away.

    • I just have this horrible image of a baby with pen all over them! That sounds like a stain I don’t want to encounter! The trick is getting them right away, my son had a blow out at school and they bagged up his clothes. By the time I got to them, there was no saving it! I just chucked it (another great way to get rid of stains… haha)!

    I tend to spills things a lot especially coffee.. If it happen at home it wouldn’t be too bad, but I happen sometime when I am out .

  4. The stains I really struggle with are fat/grease stains. Most of the other baby stains have come out ok 🙂

    • Yeah, those are rough. You have to catch them fast. I found a stain treater called “Grandma’s” randomly at Ace Hardware that works great on grease!

    My toughest stain is the ring around the collar on my hubby’s white dress shirts! I would love to see if Purex with Clorox 2 could handle this stain!
