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 Max Force™ Laundry Stain Remover, all opinions are my own.
When I first got married, I knew a lot of things. I knew I wanted to have home births and homeschool my kids. I knew breast was best and sugar was bad. I read The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, Spiritual Midwifery, and Homegrown Kids.
I knew a lot.
Unfortunately, I was lacking practical experience.
When Adalia was a newborn, I washed my very first load of cloth diapers. It was fun! It was amazing! It was shocking! The bright mustard yellow poop stained the diaper. I was in shock. Everything I read said the baby poo would come right out.
Brand-new cloth diaper: stained.
Hanging out in the sun wasn’t really an option since I lived where the sun don’t shine. Literally.
Okay, the sun shines in Alaska in February, but it is frozen outside…not the best for line-drying clothing. Yellow poo and a projectile-vomiting baby were my introduction to stain removers.
Up until this point stain remover was one of those frivolous extras…hardly a necessity! Now stain remover is as essential as toilet paper or my morning coffee.
We have been using OxiClean™ for years (after a blog reader suggested it).
I love the fact that these stain removers allow me to treat the stain and then leave the laundry for up to a week!
remover into the fibers of the shirt….plus it was kind of fun.
OxiClean™ Max Force Foam is best for grease, cooking oil and butter. It also did a great job of removing pen stains from Apollo’s shirt.
Over the years I’ve learned a lot.
Breastfeeding is good, but fed is best. Even if fed means formula through a tube. Homeschooling is awesome, but our local elementary school is pretty cool too. And most importantly, baby poop sometimes requires stain remover.
