When I passed the “putting food in the hair” stage, I totally thought I would be free of stains.  Boy, was I wrong!  I quickly learned there are different stains at different life stages.  I’m dealing with two different stains with a toddler and a school-aged boy.  My toddler gets art supplies everywhere while my six year old is a sports fanatic.  Thankfully, OxiClean™ Max Force Pre-Treaters are there to remove the stains at all stages of life.

How to Brighten and Whiten Without Bleach

This post was sponsored by the Maker of OxiClean™ through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about their White Revive™ Laundry Stain Remover, all opinions are my own.

White is the new black.  Seriously.  White is so hot right now.  White clothes, white sheets, white furniture…white everything!  I love it all.  Wearing white in summer is one of my favorite things.  It looks clean, crisp, and enhances my tan.  The only problem is I am a huge klutz.  Wearing white clothes means I’m probably going to create some major stains.  When I say probably I’m talking nine times out of ten.  This is where my OxiClean™ White Revive Stain Remover comes in.

I generally try not to change out of my pajamas until I drink my morning cup of joe.  Of course I didn’t one particular morning, but it actually worked out well for this blog post.  My husband looked at me like I was crazy when I asked him to take a picture of my coffee stain.

You can’t even tell that the stain was there now.  Not only did it remove that unsightly coffee spill, it brightened my whites without the harsh smell or worry of chlorine spills.  OxiClean™ White Revive Stain Remover even brightens whites 40% better than chlorine bleach and is safe on colors.

Removing the stain was insanely easy.  I started my washing machine on hot water and threw in a scoop of OxiClean™ White Revive Stain Remover with my detergent to keep my whites bright.  Then, I threw in my stained shirt along with my other whites that needed to be washed.  I have a top loader so it’s important to add the detergent and OxiClean before adding the laundry.

If you have an HE Washer you can add your detergent as you normally would and OxiClean™ directly into the drum before adding laundry.  For regular loads fill to line 2.  You can use more for larger loads or extra whitening power.

You ladies will appreciate this dilemma.  As obsessed with beauty and skincare as I am, sometimes I fall asleep with my makeup on.  I know, I know, it’s a beauty sin.  When Paxton is sick and the only thing that makes him feel better is snuggling with mama, then gosh darnit that’s what I’m going to do!  Sometimes I get too sleepy to wash my face and other times he really doesn’t want to stop cuddling.  I like to sleep on white sheets and you can see how awful they looked after a couple nights without removing my makeup.  No worries because I washed my sheets and pillowcase with OxiClean™ White Revive Stain Remover and they brightened right up! My makeup is obviously of a tanner shade so for it to look good as new is mind-blowing to me.

One of my favorite ways to use OxiClean™ White Revive Stain Remover is as a pre-soaker for tough stains and to revive dingy whites.  I do this one a LOT with extremely messy boys (and a klutzy mama).  Let me tell you how to do it.

  1. Mix 1 scoop of OxiClean™ per gallon of the warmest water recommended by the garment care label.  Make sure it is completely dissolved.  Submerge tough stains, heavily soiled clothing, or dingy whites in solution. 
  2. Soak for 6 hours.
  3. Wash as normal with detergent and OxiClean™ filled to line 2.
