I don’t have little kids anymore. Mine are 12, 15, and 18.

My kids - Mom Saves the Day - Stain fighter extraordinaire!

Oh but we still have messes.

Mom Saves the Day – Stain Fighter Extraordinaire!

In the house.

In the car.

On the clothes.

And the shoes…

Where there’s a will, there’s a way. And messes + family = a whole lot of will!
Oh… and with school in full swing, we’re busy. From football to cheer to theatre to volunteer work to work work, and laundry, and…

My kids - Mom Saves the Day - Stain fighter extraordinaire!

I don’t have to get carrot stains out of bibs anymore, but like to make sports’ uniforms bright and vibrant. Or tackle that dried on stage make-up out of costumes. The stain-fighting tasks happen between work deadlines, games, volunteer commitments, and all the driving around for cheer practice, theatre rehearsals, tutoring, forgotten lunches & permission slips, and voice lessons. 

And I like to get some sleep in there too.

Oh the things to keep clean! There are football jerseys, and allllll the workout wear (stinky!), and dance clothes, and the cheer uniform, and the choir dress, and the favorite pants, and that one thing for spirit day, and that one nice shirt that was buried in the back of the closet with a mystery stain that is suddenly THE shirt… And of course there’s dog slobber, and coffee stains, and the stain from the trash bag that had a hole in it.


Thanks to Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster… a mom kind-of can get a time out. Mom saves the day, indeed! With Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster one can pre-treat to remove tough stains by gently rubbing it in and waiting 5-10 minutes to allow the product to set (but do not allow to dry on fabric), and then just wash as usual with your favorite detergent. For really tough stains (like muddy jeans from those unavoidable mud puddles on the playground at school) presoaking for 30 minutes is the teammate a busy mom needs.

You can simply add it to your wash too (your washing machine might be different than mine, so follow directions based on the type of washer you have!), to get some of that color boosting action too.

And for more sensitive folks, Clorox 2® Free and Clear is made without dyes or perfumes, ensuring gentleness for sensitive skin.

Gotta love options.

I have to add, when I get stains out, it always impresses the heck out of my kids. Which means I get a bunch of thank-yous and compliments…”You are SO awesome, Mom!”. I know I’m awesome, but it’s nice to know that THEY know I’m awesome.

Plus, I like feeling like I just saved the day. Not only do I have to keep my football player’s purple uniform bright, and winning-team clean (that eye black can be a beast!), but my husband’s coach gear needs to stay bright too! Working the sidelines with all those football players is not clean work! My guys may have their teammates on the field, but with Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster… I guess I have my teammate in the laundry room!

Football - Coach and player. Father and son.
