Product Review: OxiClean Baby

Ladies, if you're anything like me, you may have found yourself in a laundry nightmare after your first little one arrived. Not only did I find myself doing load after load of laundry, but I wasn't drying some of it because I didn't want any stains to set in. Let me tell you, it became quite the juggling act.

A great friend of mine lent me some of her son's preemie baby clothes to wear while my son spent several weeks growing into the 0-3 months we already had on hand. There is no worse feeling than pulling borrowed clothes out of the washing machine and finding they're still dirty, even after subsequent washes. I was at my wit's end - not only could my son not wear these dirty clothes, but I'd have to return them stained! Well, there was no way I was going to do that. If I couldn't find a way to get them clean, I'd have to replace them.

I did a google search for how to remove baby poop stains from clothing (my son is exclusively breastfed, so spitup came right out). I happened to come across an online discussion where women were praising a product I hadn't yet heard of, OxiClean Baby.

Sure, sure, I'd used regular OxiClean before, but always found it a hassle to make up a solution for pretreating stains. The OxiClean Baby line includes the tub of powder, but you can also get this Baby Stain Remover in a premixed spray bottle! It sounded good and looked easy to use, so I decided to try it out.
I've used it consistently for about a month now, and I'm totally hooked! Not only did it get the stains out of the clothes my son soiled, but it brightened several used outfits my sister gave me, even removing some older, set-in formula spitup stains. I was touting its amazingness to a friend of mine, and her neighbor that overheard me said it works great on her toddler's clothes, too! It's removed grass, jelly, blood, and lots of chocolate stains over the last six months. This is definitely a product every Hip Homemaker needs in her (or his) laundry room!

The best part about OxiClean Baby is that it's
100% fragrance, chlorine, detergent, and dye free, without sacrificing its stain-fighting effectiveness. You can get your baby's clothes squeaky clean without worrying about what's touching their skin! If you'd like to try out OxiClean Baby powder and spray, this is the best combo price for both. And be sure to look here for current coupon codes before you check out and save even more! Happy laundering!

I wonder if we have that in Canada. I've never seen it before.
