I’m participating in The Switch & Save Challenge, trying a variety of Arm & Hammer products and sharing my experiences with you!

My husband gets dirty. I mean really sweaty dirty.

Get your mind out of the gutter…….he’s a bug man!  He owns his own pest control business AND in his free time he plays with kitties……..

Really BIG kitties.

so you can imagine my laundry issues right?  I mean, my man has TIGER size stains! lol

With spraying pesticides, squeezing thru crawl spaces, climbing in attics, greasy commercial kitchens and big wet tiger paws….he brings home a whole new kind of STINKY!

Laundry Tips

My usual laundry regimen is to throw in about half a cup of baking soda with the wash cycle of my top loader, then if I can remember, I’ll toss in about 1/2-1 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle.   If I really have the time, nothing beats hanging them outside to dry.  Sunlight is a natural sanitizing and bleaching agent.

A&H Power Gel Oxi Clean detergentI was really excited  when I received a bottle of Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean Power Gel Laundry Detergent as my Switch & Save Challenge product for this month! I couldn’t wait to put it to the test.

I have to be honest…….I was really expecting a lot out of a product with the Arm & Hammer name.  And,  much to our olfactory satisfaction not only did his shirts look clean…….but they smelled clean and STAYED smelling clean!  That received VERY high marks, not to mention the number it did on the stains.  Most of the time clothes get tossed into the laundry basket with out being pre-treated……so the stain fighting peace of mind was another big plus!

ARM & HAMMER has always been a brand name synonymous with reliability and value in my book, and their baking soda has been a staple I grew up using in the kitchen. I’m excited to have a new favorite Arm & Hammer product for my laundry room!  A product that does what it promises to do…..clean clothes.

Giveaway has ended.  Congrats to #60 Amy

My son get his nose bleeds easily, especially in CA’s dry weather. I always wake up to blood stains in the morning on his pillow case and sheets. I tried to wash the stains right the way with cold water if I don’t have time to laundry just yet. And the new Tide stain remove product really help.   ~Amy
