Not-So-Dirty Secrets for Making Laundry Easier

Doesn’t it feel so mundane and pointless doing some household chores sometimes, such as laundry? I mean, we pay for cleaners, only to have our hard work erased time and time again. It’s like a clock hand which is stuck and is moving forward one pace then back again, rinse and repeat {pun intended}.

I was recently invited to take part in#AHFreshPerspective – it’s the Arm & Hammer Triple Chamber Challenge testing out the new Arm & Hammer™ Plus OxiClean™ 3-IN-1 Power Paks, to prove that laundry can be simple and effective. Since I’ve used OxiClean for too many years to count, and very much trust its effectiveness – I was game. After all, these particular power paks are the only detergent boosted with the stain fighting power of OxiClean™ and the freshness of Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda. So right off the bat I knew they’d pack a powerful punch.

Arm & Hammer™ Plus OxiClean™ 3-IN-1 Power Paks

I’ve been using Arm & Hammer™ Plus OxiClean™ 3-IN-1 Power Paks solely in my home for months now, and quite honestly, I haven’t given it much thought. During each and ever countless wash, these power paks did what they are intended to do, without other effort from me. In fact, I think I only had to stain soak one item during this time, a food stain which I wanted to ensure would come out. Yet thinking more in depth about it, I usually do a lot more stain treating, especially with three kids. This really proves the stain fighting power of the product.

Here’s a laundry hacks visual tip sheet with not-so-dirty secrets for making laundry easier – which offers additional ways to save time when doing laundry.

  1. Not going to lie, I hate doing laundry. One of the worst chores there is. That’s why I’m glad my hubby does the laundry. I do the sheets and blankets though and only use pods because I hate measuring out soap. So this would be great to win

  2. Loving the laundry hacks! I would love some free laundry products to help make doing laundry easier!

  3. We do a number of loads of laundry a week and I love the laundry paks are they are less messy to deal with. I’d love to win as this prize would make laundry much more simpler than having to measure out laundry soap.

  4. I’d love to win because I do a LOT of laundry and this would really help! During the school year I do laundry almost every day – there are uniforms for basketball, choir etc. that need to be clean for practices, games performances etc. Plus there are all the school outfits, and since my kids are little they tend to get messy so I need to get the stains out instead of letting them sit. And then there is my husband’s cycling gear, my volleyball stuff, etc. Keeps me busy!! I tend to hang most of our stuff to dry, so the process takes longer in winter – I am so happy it’s hot and sunny summer weather right now, I can get through the process much faster since everything dries so quickly on my racks.

  5. I work with food everyday, there is constantly near permanent grease and oil stains on my uniform, plus since my fiance plays soccer, he gets lots of grass stains. This would help us tackle all that laundry

  6. I have a lot of stinky gym clothing I have to deal with! Id love to win as I was thinking to switch to laundry pods instead of liquids

  7. I’ve got a hubby that comes home with dirty work clothes everyday and a son that has dirty stinky hockey uniform in the winter & a grubby soiled baseball uniform in the summer. I need all the laundry cleaning power I can get.

  11.

I wear steel toed rubber boots, bright yellow slickers and not only do I get hot,sweaty, and icky, I also have a tendancy to get wet as well

  12. I do lots of dirty laundry. I have to wear a custom compression garment that covers most of my hand and arm. The hand part is hard to keep clean, so I would love to try out the the new Arm & Hammer™ Plus OxiClean™ 3-IN-1 Power Paks to take the Triple Chamber Challenge for myself.
