Laundry Help

Between the spit-up, the diaper blow outs and the baby food, it is difficult to keep baby’s clothing stain-free. 

Some of my friends tell me not to bother with stains since babies outgrow their clothing so quickly. But (aside from being type A) I’m a naturally thrifty person, so I don’t view baby clothing as disposable. I want to keep my son’s clothing looking as new as possible since I plan to either use it for our next baby, give it to a friend, or donate it to charity. So I’m always on the lookout for products that remove tough stains without fading colors.

I recently received a free sample of Clorox 2 Stain Fighter and Color Booster as part of a MomCentral blog tour. (Since I prefer to use dye and perfume-free laundry detergent, I used the Clorox 2 Free Stain Fighter and Color Booster rather than the regular Clorox 2 formula.) I used the Clorox 2 to pre-treat four different  stains (baby formula, carrots, prunes, and diaper blowout). I just poured some on the stains, waited a few minutes and tossed the clothing in the wash. All the stains came out, and the color didn’t fade. I also added some Clorox 2 into the laundry along with my regular detergent, and the blankets and bibs looked noticeably brighter.  

If you want to try the product yourself, Clorox is offering a money-back guarantee: “lose the stains, keep the color or your money back.” You can find details on the guarantee at

I also have four coupons for a free bottle of Clorox 2 to give to readers. If you want to enter, just leave a comment on this post by 11:59pmEST on December 10, 2008 letting us know you’re interested.
