all® Oxi-Active™ Review & Giveaway 2 winners!


A mother's work is never done. I can't tell you how many times I have heard that, and I have to say that it is definitely true! Cooking, cleaning, laundry... it never ends! And speaking of laundry, with the six of us in the house (soon to be seven when grandson #2 is born in August!) the laundry is one of the things that just seems to pile up around here.

During the past year, hubby was nice enough to buy me some snazzy looking new front loaders from Home Depot, and while I am in love with them I am NOT in love with doing mountains of laundry! My son and his girlfriend do help out and do their own laundry, which I appreciate since it takes a load off me. (forgive the pun, lol.)

Thanks to MomSelect, I was given the opportunity to try out all® Oxi-Active™ detergent to see if it could help me tackle my most challenging laundry problems. Lucky for me, I had no shortage of laundry to do and was free to begin immediately ;) Hubby sometimes gets dirty at work, but gets even dirtier when he is outdoors tinkering on his old Toyota project! The grease and grime on his clothes make me just want to shake my head in disgust and thrown that stuff right in the trash. While he uses old clothing, I can't see just tossing out something that is perfectly good if all it needs is a good wash-since he's just going to turn around and get it dirty all over again anyways. My poor little grandson is having surgery in June as well, he's been on antibiotics constantly to try to clear up his ear infections before he gets his tubes put in. However, those antibiotics tend to make him have diarrhea that comes out of his diaper, goes up his back, you know, just that yucky stuff you get when a kid is sick. My son and his girlfriend have thrown out tons of onesies due to this, and I've told them to try to wash it out, but being kids themselves, they just don't want to take that extra step.

Today my all® Oxi-Active™ arrived and I was eager to try it out. After letting it set for a couple of hours (all that bouncing in the Fedex truck left me with lots of bubbles when I tried to open the cap the first time) I gently removed the cap and inhaled. I love laundry detergent with scent, and always have. One of my favorite things about doing laundry is the smell of a freshly washed and dried towel or shirt, it just smells...clean. The all® Oxi-Active™ I received smelled just great, so I decided to put it to the test. I loaded my washer full of hubby's grimy work clothes, a few baby items, and some stained shirts I had. (I've got a built in shelf which seems to catch condiments nicely, and yesterday I ate hot dogs, so ended up with a mess!)

That photo above my folks is my washer in action-armed with new all® Oxi-Active™ detergent, a unique 2 in 1 formula which combines all® Oxi-Active™ stainlifters right in with the detergent. I'm lazy, and adding things as I go along doesn't always get done. With this all® Oxi-Active™ product, all I have to do is wash it and forget about it. Now that's convenient, AND helpful for a forgetful old broad like myself.

all® Oxi-Active™ is supposed to be the toughest all® product out there, and as you can see, it's safe for whites and colors. (I just threw a little bit of everything in my machine!) And of course can be used in regular or HE, high efficiency machines like mine. With summer almost here, ice cream, juices, blood, grass stains, and BBQ condiments like ketchup and mustard are all things I've seen on my family's clothing. It makes me happy to know that I can rely on all® Oxi-Active™ to help me get those tough stains out.

And, if you are watching pennies like I am, be sure to sign up for additional coupon savings from all® here Right now, you can even get a $1.00 off coupon for all® Oxi-Active™! all® Oxi-Active™ is so confident that you will love their detergent, they are willing to prove to you that they clean better than the leading Oxi detergent on 4 tough stains (grass, chocolate ice cream, wine & blood) that they have a Guarantee you can print off and they will refund your purchase price up to $5.99.

Set in blood is at the top, followed very closely by blackberry juice splatters generated when making home made blackberry jam in a WHITE tee shirt (I was NOT thinking!)

Google friend follower #1--your widget doesn't seem to be working, at least not for me. I had entered earlier, checked on it for another contest earlier today and signed up again, then checked again for this one, and still didn't show as a follower. So I signed up again. I received confirmation pages each time. Yours is not the only blog on which I have found this problem, but it is a little irritating when so many bloggers give extra entries for following--not to mention that you don't show on my dashboard.
