As part of being a Purex Insider, I was given a free Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar. I have never used such a thing before, and was eager to see if it would hold up to the many stains of my house. I have never used ANY laundry soap before as a stain remover, but I knew that the Caterpillars would give me a great testing ground. I was thinking it would be one of the older boys that would produce the item of clothing for me to test it on…
Then I did one of those “stupid mum things”… Went has an adorable Thanksgiving Outfit. A-DOR-A-BLE! It has a cute turkey on it and says “Thankful for Mommy” and he is just precious wearing it. I was saving it for our Thanksgiving Day – but Otto had a flag football game on the Wednesday night before TurkEve and I thought “ah, wouldn’t he look cute wearing it to the game?”
Stupid mistake. That just meant that my son wore his special Thanksgiving outfit and walked all over a nasty, dirty, concrete floor. I was so mad at myself when I saw the stains. He had a few around his collar and wrists, but the bottom of his feet made me want to cry.
That’s gum! GUM! I felt so stupid. As I used the laundry soap, I kept telling Otto that at least if it worked as a stain remover on some of the stains, or just the collar and arm cuffs, I would feel better. But I could not believe I had ruined his Thanksgiving Outfit.
I wet the bar and rubbed it all over the stains. It was incredible simple to use (I left the bar in my Master Bath, since that is where we undress the baby). Then, Otto tossed it in the regular wash cycle. I had asked him to let me possibly reapply the laundry soap and wash it again, before drying it, but we were so busy, he forgot and put the entire load straight in the dryer (and I’m not going to complain about a husband who generously helps with the laundry)!
On Thanksgiving Morning, Otto dressed Went and brought him downstairs, telling me to get my camera.
Look at these feet!
That is ONE application of the Purex Laundry Soap. I had *no idea* it could save these feet AND get the gum off! It looks brand-new! And I have a bar to share with one lucky reader. Just leave a comment (on the blog – not on Facebook), and I will randomly choose one winner. (Please make sure you leave a valid email address, or I at least know how to get in touch with you!)
I can’t wait to share!
