Laundry, Laundry, Go Away…..Never Mind, You’re Here to Stay.  While we may not be able to make laundry go away, we can definitely use a detergent that leaves our laundry clean and smelling fresh the FIRST time!  I am loving the opportunity I’ve had to be one of 20 bloggers working with ARM & HAMMER and taking part in the Switch & Save Challenge. My boys and I have sensitive skin, so it is really important that we use a detergent that not only cleans our clothes, but is gentle on our skin as well.  After using ARM & HAMMER Plus OxiClean Power Gel Laundry Detergent for the past few weeks, I have found that I REALLY like it!  The detergent is gentle on our clothes, as well as our skin, and does the job the first time we use it.  ARM & HAMMER Plus OxiClean Power Gel Laundry Detergent works as a great stain remover as well!

With three boys, I find myself spending a lot of time in the laundry room and have discovered a few helpful hints along the way.  The first tip is that you should start your washing machine and then add detergent, waiting to add your laundry until bubbles start to form.  Second, for tough stains, pour a small amount of laundry detergent directly on the stain and rub in.  Let the clothes sit for 20 minutes and then rinse under warm water.  Add directly to the washing machine, as described in tip one, and let the cleaning begin!

ABOUT ARM & HAMMER PLUS OXICLEAN POWER GEL LAUNDRY DETERGENT

With ARM & HAMMER Plus OxiClean Power Gel Laundry Detergent, you’ll get the clean you need at a fraction of the cost!  This detergent’s unique gel formula is loaded with a powerful blend of ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda and twice the supercharged OxiClean Stain Fighters in every drop.  ARM & HAMMER Plus OxiClean Power Gel Laundry Detergent is now available in a new formula that works in both HE and standard washing machines.

MY THOUGHTS

I have  been using ARM & HAMMER Plus OxiClean Power Gel Laundry Detergent for the past few weeks and have loved the results.  My clothes are cleaner, they smell good, and the detergent doesn’t irritate our sensitive skin.  We will definitely be using ARM & HAMMER Plus OxiClean Power Gel Detergent in our home on a regular basis!  A big thanks to ARM & HAMMER for making this review possible!

    My laundry tip is that where I work I cook chicken and my shirts get pretty greasy, my son sometimes throws some of my clothes in with his to make a full load, not spraying my chicken grease shirts. so I keep a bottle of shout at work and I spray it on my shirt before I get it home.

    For greasy clothes, soak garment in white vinegar for at least a few hours- or overnight. Wash as usual, do NOT put in dryer if the stains are still there: Instead, spray stains with shout or other spot remover and wash a second time. I worked at McDonalds a few years ago on the Grill.

  184. I precisely wished to say thanks again. I am not sure the things I might have created without the entire methods documented by you relating to that theme. It actually was the terrifying scenario for me personally, however , noticing this specialized style you dealt with that forced me to weep over gladness. Now i am happy for your help and in addition wish you know what an amazing job that you are undertaking instructing many people with the aid of your webpage. Most likely you’ve never come across any of us.

    To remove a grease or oil stain on fabric, I rub a paste of Dawn dishwashing liquid and Arm & Hammer Baking Soda into it and let it sit for a day or so before washing as usual. It nearly always comes out and without any damage to the fabric.

    my laundry tip is when you get light colored stains on black clothes like flour, frosting, toothpaste, deodorant and you cant wash it right away, using hot black coffee to wipe the stain away will make it disappear.

  205. Katharina says:

    My laundry tip is to line-dry things that may shrink. Too many shirts start to creep up the back from being in the dryer and shrinking. Wonder why they only shrink in the back? 🙂

  206. dddiva says:

    My tip is to hang it as it comes out of the drier- if you can’t then fluff it up for 5 min with a damp towel to avoid ironing.

    my friend once told me that if you leave your wash in washer too long & it starts to smell musty, add a touch of pinesol to your laundry detergent when you rewash. It really helps with the smell & no.. you dont smell like a floor 🙂 I dont have this problem with the arm & hammer tho, I love that detergent! I will never trade

    This is probably a old tip or whatever but I went to the junk yard the other day for a part and I had to sit on the back of a truck tail gate to get to the vehicle that had other things that I needed for my vehicle and I ended up getting grease all over my butt I wash them and it did not come out so I did not dry them and I put dish soap all over the butt and let it soak a couple days then washed again and the grease was all gone.

    I don’t dry my clothes in the dryer.. i think it helps extend their life

  280. Lori says:

    I don’t sort clothes by color, saves time and all turns out fine,with the exception of red 🙂

  281. Erica C. says:

    My biggest tip is to not let laundry pile up. Do a load every few days to make it not seem like a huge chore!

  282. Jen Costa says:

    I always use the cold/cold cycle.

  283. Tina says:

    Laundry Tip: To keep pillows fluffed, just throw in a few tennis balls into the dryer, and they will come out perfect, nice and fluffy!

    My tip is to get the children involved in laundry as soon as possible.

  304. My mom always had a magnet that we put on top of the washing machine when we were washing items that couldn’t go in the dryer. It’s especially helpful when there are multiple people in the house who wash.

  305. Amy says:

    I have four children who are always coming home with stains. I like to soak their clothing in oxiclean.

  306. McKim says:

    I keep a bottle of pre-wash in the bathroom and everyone is expected to spray some on any stains they have before putting clothes in hamper.
