Years ago I had a favorite pair of jeans. They made my butt look great, felt amazing on and made me feel like a million bucks when I wore them. One day, at a laundromat, I was doing my laundry and needed bleach for a load of white towels. I had the bleach sitting in between the machines I was using, lid on, and went about my business. I tossed my clothing into one machine, leaving my favorite jeans of all time, seriously guys, I have never been able to find any others I love as much, sitting on the top of the machine, waiting to be tossed in. I went to move my towels to the other machine, knocked into the bottle of bleach, watched in slow motion as it fell, top popping off on impact, soaking my favorite jeans. I watched as the beautiful blue fabric faded to white, traumatized by the incident. To this day, I am weary of using bleach in my laundry. I honestly have a real fear of using it incorrectly and ruining all of my clothes!
But when you have three kids who love to play outside in the grass, dig in the dirt and more, you need bleach in the laundry room to get those stains out. The other day, walking through Walmart, I came upon something that could prevent any further traumas from happening in the laundry room! NEW Clorox® Bleach Crystals™ and Clorox® Bleach Packs™!! Why are these so awesome? They are water activated! This means that they don’t start bleaching unless water hits them!
I bought both the Clorox® Bleach Crystals™ and Clorox® Bleach Packs™ because as I mentioned… I have kids. One of my daughters LOVES to wear white jean shorts. They get so dirty so quickly. But they are her favorite. Unfortunately, due to my fear of bleaching all of her other favorite clothing with a bleach accident, I almost never bleach them. So they look dingier than they need to. Having the Clorox® Bleach Crystals™ and Clorox® Bleach Packs™, though, makes me a little more confident.
The other day she put on her favorite white shorts and accompanied her sisters and I to swim lessons. They were as white as I could get them without bleach before but after putting them back on with a wet swimsuit bottom and then sitting in dirt and sand while playing at the restaurant I took them to for lunch, her hind end was filthy! Regular washing was not going to get this out!
Grabbing the NEW Clorox® Bleach Packs™, I added one to the drum of the washer and then added her shorts, some towels and some other whites I needed to clean. There was no liquid to spill, no top to pop off and ruin my beloved jeans and no moment in the laundry room that instilled further fear of using bleach freely!
I have to say, as I pulled my daughter’s favorite white jean shorts out of the dryer, cleaner than I have seen them in forever, I was thrilled! Now we can settle into our summer activities like swimming, playing on the play set, going to restaurants with sandboxes, taking on every slide we see and rolling in the grass with the dogs. I know that I can get them bright white without having to worry about ruining other clothing again!
How many summer activities do your kids bring home on their summer whites? How would these NEW Clorox® Bleach Crystals™ and Clorox® Bleach Packs™ help you take the fear out of laundry? I would love to hear!
