As a Mom I prefer to have my childrens clothes looking clean and stain free, unfortunately I have messy eaters , My children seem to think that their clothes are napkins or I get peanut butter and jelly hugs and end up with it on my pants or shirts. We also eat a lot of sauce based foods and with that red sauce ends up on the lightest colored clothes that we own,It is some conspiracy with in the food world that staining foods end up on light clothes. Well If you are anything like me as soon as your family removes those articles of clothing one or two things happen, I pre- treat it with Oxi Clean Laundry Stain Remover and let it soak and then my attention gets directed elsewhere or it immediately wash it , Usually it just sits and soaks. Now when it comes time to wash it I put in a scoop of Oxi Clean Powder with my usual laundry detergent, There are so many steps to get my childrens clothes clean and Hubby is no exception to stains and spilling who knows what on his clothes. Well I have been recently introduced to Oxi Clean Laundry Detergent which saves me from adding this and that, I still pre-treat just to make sure but I use two products instead of 3 or 4 and that makes it much easier and time saving. I’m not one who likes to spend my weekends checking clothes for surprise stains due to the fact that I have kids that forget to tell me that they have spilled something on their clothes for the umpteenth time, Now that I have begin using Oxi-clean laundry detergent in place of what I have been using, I have confidence in knowing that my families clothes with come out clean and nice looking until the next time . Saving time and money is always a good thing.
Now with the Holidays approaching you want to bring out your most beautiful table cloth and even though you know that stains are probable to happen, You know that cleaning with the Oxi-Clean Laundry detergent will get those sought after stains out and who needs any more added stress during the Holidays , But then you look over and see the mass amount of dishes and you want to spend time with your family , watch the parade and games to follow , ah you have a dishwasher yay time saver , So go ahead use it and while you are at it useOxi Clean Extreme Dishwasher Detergent with power crystals with confidence knowing that your dishes will come out clean.and with no residue and you get sparkling clean plates, glasses and flatware.

Can you believe that in 49 More days Christmas will be upon us, I’m slowly getting gifts for the family, With the kidlets being older it gets more and more of a guessing game with them. One week they want this and the next it is something different . I know that Thanksgiving is close too and that means that stores on and offline will be getting their massive deals coming out soon, Personally I’m not the type that will wait in line for bargains , I prefer to shop on line or go to the stores when all the hustle and bustle of the crowds are down to a minimum. I’ve noticed that Christmas decor and music are being shoved in our faces, I understand that it is that “time ” of year but it seems like each year it starts earlier. I’m not a grinch I just want to enjoy Halloween and Thanksgiving with out being persuaded to rush the next holiday. I hope you all have a Blessed Day ~Laura
Wonderful weather continues and that means no need for the air conditioner ,Yes even during the “winter” months here in FL we may need to use it, But so far for the past 4 days we have not had it on, My budget and wallet will be pleased. I truly enjoy opening the windows and letting fresh air come in the house. Not much going on today with the exception of cleaning and doing some grocery shopping to prepare for Thanksgiving, Though this year will most likely be just the 5 of us, Hubby , I and the three kidlets, That is fine means less cooking and we can pass out from our food overload in the comfort of our house, Wishing you all a Blessed Day . Laura
