Purex UltraPacks Plus OXI

Hey Neighbors!

I don't know about your family, but for some reason my family seems to get their clothes messier in the fall.  I think it is the nicer, cooler weather that gets them out and then somehow they get dirty.  I am sure the dogs add to the mess too.  I mean muddy paw prints seem to happen all too often.  Anyway, pair that with the sports and I can get some dirty laundry.  Their Tae Kwon Do uniforms need to stay white, so I need laundry products I can trust to help get my whites white.  I got pretty excited about trying the Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi.

Speaking of keeping my whites white, I just have to share one of our laundry tragedies.  It seems to happen all too often in our home.  We have six children and we rotate through doing laundry.  I will state here that 4 of them would be considered adults.  Throw my husband in the mix and watch out.  Anyway just in the last month, my husband shrunk a dress jacket my daughter had just purchased at a thrift store.  She was really crushed, but her younger sister managed to get some happiness out of it as she inherited the jacket.  Then after washing the uniforms recently one of them decided to help by throwing some laundry in for their sister.  Unfortunately they did not separate the colored from the whites.  Yep, everything white is now pink.

One thing I can say is, they are so easy to use.  The Purex UltraPacks are little packs that are obviously pre-measured concentrated detergent just right for one load of laundry.  You just toss one in and you are ready to go.  No mess, no fuss, and no cleaning up spills.

The Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi formula is so powerful; it works to fight over 101 of your tough stains!  The concentrated DirtLift Action formula has 2X the cleaning power in every drop, leaving your clothes so bright, white, and clean people will start to take notice.  Which stains will you tackle next?

Purex is going to celebrate the release of Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi, by hosting a sweepstakes, Find the Red Football Jersey.  Click on the link and find the red football jersey hidden on the Purex website.  10 winners will receive $50.

Two of my neighbors will also be given the opportunity to try the Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi.  Enter the giveaway and then be sure to share the good news!

I recently was doing my 14 year olds laundry and it turns out she had an orange crayon in the pocket of her jeans and I didn't know it and when it went in the dryer, it melted on a lot of her clothes. It took my about three more loads of drying old towels to get all the crayon out of the sides of the dryer.
Once my son left a pack of gum in his pocket and it was a sticky mess.

I've washed gum before - what a mess that is

The only one I had was just recently when we did 3 loads of laundry to then realize the agitator quit working and we had to go that day to replace machine.

Once long ago hubby machine washed a hand wash only item and it came out the size that would fit a 6 month old. He's learned his lesson since that.

letting the clothes sit in the washer too long and they got all musty.

My husband started doing the laundry years ago and he would wash the whites first and then the lights, then darks. Well, one of my favorite tops came out with white spots on it and that was the last time he did the whites first, now they're done last!

My daughter put her pink underwear in with the whites. The towels and my husband's socks had pink patches on them.

Washing a load of clothes with a kleenex in a pocket - shredded all over every piece of clothing!

I don't know if this counts, since technically, it wasn't MY laundry fiasco, but it DID ruin my dress - MY sister borrowed my prom dress to go to a club, and I'm guessing she got a spill or a stain on it, and tried washing it ... the problem was that she THEN put it in a hot dryer, and it actually came out with burns. Needless to say, I never let her borrow any of my nicer clothes again!

I tried washing a pair of pants that a cat peed on a long time ago and the smell never came out after multiple tries. I had to throw them away.

Black marker in a pants pocket and also in the dryer.

My fiasco was when I left my lipstick in my pocket and it went through both the washer and dryer that was a mess!

something ($17 piece/safety device so, washer won't work unless lid is down) breaking on our washing machine, so it would not run...and the washer was full of laundry, water & soap. Bad thing is my husband had to be gone for 3 days before he was home to fix it.

Blood stains because they wont come out.

My husband left his phone in his jeans pocket and I washed them. The cell phone died.

I just recently accidentally let a hand towel slip into a load of my workout clothes. Now I have little towel fuzzies all over my workout pants. They're everywhere!

My son was "helping out" & did a load of laundry, but forgot to put in the dryer for 3 days, so they smelled really bad. It took several washes to get them smelling good again!
I haven't had any recent fiascoes but right after we moved in to our house, my entire laundry room flooded!

The worst was when I was washing work clothes and my son poured bleach into the washer. It was horrible.
Teresa Moore said…
Someone left either a red pen or red marker in their pockets and I forgot to check. I have clothes with red streaks here and there on them.

There was a period of time in college where I would constantly forget to check my pockets and I would wash and dry a tube of chapstick which would leave a gross stain on everything. I ruined so many clothes!
