Tackling stains with new Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent

Springs brings lots of lovely things – warm weather, flowers, and time outside. With an active family, that inevitably leads to some less lovely things:  stains.

My kids find so many ways to stain their clothes.  There are grass stains from soccer and chocolate stains from dripping ice cream cones.  And of course there are the variety of mystery stains that nobody can explain.

OK, if I’m being honest, I must admit I create my own fair share of stains while cooking, baking and gardening.


This is a sponsored post.  As a member of the Purex Social Insiders program, the Purex brand provided me with a free sample of Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent to facilitate my honest review.

I’ve used Purex laundry detergent for years because it has always done a good job cleaning our clothes, and it is very reasonably priced.  {Price is important when you’re doing mountains of laundry!}

Over the years I’ve also used a lot of Clorox for whites and Clorox 2 for colors.  Now Purex is introducing a new Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent.  It’s two great things that are perfect together! The new Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent is safe for colors and formulated to work on 100 stains.

Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent vs. chocolate stains

My bottle of Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent came in handy recently when I discovered my daughter’s shirt wadded up in the dirty laundry with chocolate stains down the front.

The picture shows her stained, wrinkly shirt after being shoved into the bottom of her laundry basket for a few days, letting the chocolate spots set into the fabric.

Tip from Purex:  Pretreat tough stains by rubbing some Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent into the fabric and letting it sit for 5 minutes before washing.

While loading the rest of the clothes into the washing machine, I pretreated the chocolate drips by applying the detergent on the stained areas for a few minutes.

I then washed the load in the Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent.  Her shirt came out perfectly clean!  Doesn’t it look as good as new?Stain - removed with PurexThe laundry all smelled good, too.  I received the Original Fresh scent, which has a nice fragrance.  It smells, well, fresh and clean.

The detergent also comes in Sunny Linen scent.  That one sounds nice, so I’m looking forward to using that scent as well.
