Cottage Bliss...to this!

We just got back from a week at the cottage.  As I've mentioned before, our cottage is just that, a cottage.  We don't have t.v., we don't have internet and we certainly don't have laundry facilities.  We spend most of the week either in or on the water.  That means, at the end of the week I've got some pretty dirty and smelly clothes to contend with.

Karma shone on me because when we arrived home I had a bottle of Purex Plus Oxi liquid laundry detergent waiting at the door for me.  I had been sent a bottle to try and I decided this would be the perfect test to see how well it would hold up to towels and clothes that had stains and were quite pungent.

As much as I love the cottage, there is something about going from this...



to this...



that can take a little bit of the joy out of 'getting away'.  However, I was excited to try this new detergent.  

Purex Plus Oxi contains two stain removers, Oxi and Zout.  It can also act as a pre-treater on tough stains if you pour a little on the stain, rub the fabric together then add it to the wash after waiting 5 minutes.  I had to do this on a few ketchup stained t-shirts and was impressed when days old stains came out.  

I was really happy with the detergent.  It got our clothes clean and it smelled great.  I haven't been using liquid detergent recently but this has convinced me to go back.

5 Things I loved about Purex Plus Oxi Laundry Detergent:

  1. Clean fresh scent.
  2. Hypoallergenic.
  3. Works as a pre-treater and detergent (less products to buy).
  4. Works in both top loader and front loader machines.
  5. Less expensive than other leading brands.

As you know, saving money is important to this Creative Mama so I wouldn't hesitate to use Purex with Oxi every time I do laundry.  Now if only I could get the laundry to fold itself.  Then you'd see a really happy mama.

    1. Blood is so hard to get out but with two stain removers - Oxi and Zout it doesn't stand a chance!

  2. The worst kind of stain in our house is definitely the grass stain slide from baseball, baby dinners or urine from potty training!!!! Definitely hard to get rid of those! With 3 boys you can pretty much pick a stain and we've got it!!!

    1. Judy, you aren't alone. Grease stains seem to be the worst stains for most of us.

  6. Wine from me and grass stains from my boy. Both are horrible. Maybe I just really hate stains!

    1. You should try Purex plus Oxi then. I agree - stains are bad. I love that you chose wine. The life of a mom (with boys).

    1. YES! The yellow stains from sunscreen are so hard to get out. I hope you can tackle them with a free bottle of Purex plus Oxi!

  8. Sunscreen stains drive me crazy with the offwhite trail they leave behind, and recently my daughter had a massive nose bleed in the night and I spent hours getting the stains out of her bedding, the carpet, the bath mat, and nightgown.

    1. Oh no...blood on bedding, carpets, bath mats and nightgowns. Sounds like a disaster. Purex plus Oxi works as a pre-treater too. The two stain removers should help tackle those stains.

    1. Grease is definitely a tough stain. I love 'messy moose'. I'm going to have to use that term for my son.
