arm and hammer detergentArm and Hammer Power Gel with OxiClean is a powerhouse of stain-fighting gel that has conquered some of the worst laundry stains I’ve ever faced, this summer.  As I pre-treated them, ARM & HAMMER Power Gel Plus OxiClean HE Laundry Detergent clung to the fibers of my son’s detasseling clothes, instead of running off like a liquid will do.  It hung on to the stain, breaking it down, even before I had tossed the clothes into the washer.  It has been a great choice for our regular laundry, too.  It delivered clean, fresh towels and clothing in every load.  I love that it works in high efficiency machines and rinses clean without leaving any residue in my machine or on our clothes.  The stain-fighting power of OxiClean with the freshness booster of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda is a winning combination!

Laundry, It’s an Ugly Business, But Someone’s Got to Do It: Arm & Hammer Power Gel with OxiClean Review @bhg

I’m not gonna lie.  I am probably one of the most spoiled blessed women I know.  I have lived in homes where the laundry room was too tiny to do more than turn around in there with a basket, to ones where there was no laundry room, at all.  (Picture, a five-gallon diaper pail filled […]

I’m not gonna lie.  I am probably one of the most spoiled blessed women I know.  I have lived in homes where the laundry room was too tiny to do more than turn around in there with a basket, to ones where there was no laundry room, at all.  (Picture, a five-gallon diaper pail filled with bleach water and dirty cloth diapers, on the way to the laundromat.  It was the best, most rational reason I know, for switching to disposables!  :)  )  So, I have certainly been at the other end of the spectrum and no one is more painfully aware of just how amazing my current laundry room is.  It’s HUGE!

laundry room 2

It's a lovely and extravagently large laundry room. I couldn't get the camera angles wide enough to do justice to how spacious it is, so....

laundry room sink

I took three pictures to try and round out your view of how great it really is. This is, of course, the bath area and the built-in cubby for the washer and dryer with 4 cupboards above.

There’s not only room for my washer and dryer, but a five-foot folding table and a shelf with hang bar, for hanging clothes above it.  There’s a beautiful, large and extraordinarily deep wash basin sink, as well as a shower and toilet.  It gets natural light and fresh air from the window and when it’s too hot for the window to be opened, this beautiful laundry room is air conditioned!  I also have tons of beautiful cabinetry and storage space in there.

more laundry room

I love that deep sink and when hubby installed the shelf and hang bar, the room was complete. My wheeled hampers tuck in perfectly under the folding table. Yup, I'm definitely a very lucky woman.

Ya know what?  I still HATE laundry.  –  lol  –  Don’t get me wrong, I understand how blessed I am to have people in my life who happen to get lots and lots of clothes dirty and how blessed we are to have the clothes we need.  I get it, and appreciate that, but on a scale of 1 to 10, laundry is still probably at about a negative 11 on my list of favorite household chores.  They can’t all be #1, right?  I think part of the reason I dislike it so much is I am someone who likes to do a job or project all the way through without stopping.  If I start it, I want to get it done and see the results.  Laundry has stages — the sorting, the washing, the drying, the folding and hanging, and then finally the putting away.  And frankly, by the time the final stage is reached, my many “blessings” can produce a whole new pile of laundry I need to get started on. As you can imagine, then, I’m no shrinking violet when it comes to asserting which products and procedures work for me, in this job.  I’m picky and I tell it like it is.  I’m not going to use anything that takes longer, costs more or is inefficient, causing me to have to re-do any part of the process.  So, I’m excited that my Switch and Save Challenge for the next four weeks is Arm and Hammer Power Gel with OxiClean.

power gel with oxiclean

Arm and Hammer Power Gel with OxiClean is more than just a detergent, it can also be used as a pre-treater.  A product that can do more than one job is always a plus and a money saver!  It has the added power of Arm and Hammer Baking Soda for freshening laundry and the most amazing gel texture.  I’ve never seen any other laundry detergent made in such a thick, gel formula.  It’s a glossy, brilliant blue liquid/gel that is designed to work even in my high efficiency machine.  The gel clings to and saturates fabrics, working hard to remove tough stains with its OxiClean boost and then rinses away cleanly.

The timing for this Switch and Save Challenge couldn’t be better, as I have a brand new laundry challenge in my home, this summer.

detasseling

Stay tuned as I put Arm and Hammer Power Gel with OxiClean through its paces, decrusting and removing stains from the horrifying laundry our resident detasseler brings home, every afternoon, now.  :)  It’s going to be a valiant battle and from what I can tell, so far, Arm and Hammer Power Gel should be an excellent weapon tool!
