I am that gullible (and most favoured consumer) that watches late-night advertisements and pretty much falls hook, line, and sinker for anything that looks remotely intriguing (think cult-like looking Snuggie – yeah I bought two in two different colours…).
Even though I know I may just never use it long-term and wasting my money.

I am also that exhausted mother and constant hostess that is usually buried under piles of laundry, sweating over horrible wine or ketchup stains over my new table linens or kids clothing.
I just bought this at an incredible discounted price at Crate & Barrel!
I may as well cover my toddlers clothing with a plastic drape. *sigh*

So when my sudden purchase of an awesome-looking versatile cleaner called OxiClean™ (thanks to their cool commercial!) actually worked, I knew I was a fan for life.
It took me one error in the beginning of not pre-soaking a tough stain long enough to see the amazing effects of OxiClean™. You must make sure to pre-treat it long enough for it to fight the stain otherwise it won’t remove it all.
Wow OxiClean™, indeed. Now, I always have it in my laundry room.

As mentioned above, I host a lot.
I love entertaining but I do not enjoy the cleaning part. Especially if it involves potentially ruining cherished table linens, carpets, and my couches.
My circle of family and friends have quite a few children under the age of 6… you can imagine the damage.

So what’s OxiClean™ all about? And does it really, truly work or is this just a sugar-coated review post? Of course it does.
Don’t you know by now that I will never share a positive review for something I can’t endorse or support?
I got you, friends, I got you. 😉


OxiClean™ is a stain fighter in powder form that is activated when added to water (warm or hot water work best). Oxygen is released and targets the stains, rather than the fabric, removing many tough stains on water-washable clothing, carpet, and hard surfaces both inside and outside the home.

All OxiClean™ products contain specialized stain removers (like oxygen, surfactants and polymers) that remove stains and prevent them from redepositing onto your laundry so they can be rinsed away. All OxiClean™ products contain non-ionic detergents.
OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover works wonders for organic stains like wine, juice, coffee, food, pet messes and more.

• An incredible oxygen-based stain fighter that’s chlorine free and colour safe.
• Available in a durable, compact rectangular tub with a more sturdy scoop, making it easier to carry, use and store
• Boosts detergent for better overall cleaning and whitening
• Gets out stains that detergent alone can leave behind so they don’t become dryer set
• Helps prevent colours from fading due to chlorine in municipal water.
• For extra stubborn stains, pre-treating with or soaking in a concentrated solution of OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover can provide amazing

Okay, so I love ketchup on my fries, eggs, burgers and sometimes mac & cheese, but I loathe it on my linens!
Thankfully, I can just soak it in the right amount of warm-hot OxiClean™ infused water for a few hours (in this case, it took about 6 hours) and then throw into the washing machine.
I kid you not, ketchup stain didn’t know what was coming to it.



Just a tip though folks, don’t let tough stains sit out for too long. Some of them are ferocious and the longer you let them sit, the harder it is to get out.
Soak them in OxiClean™ sooner than later and say good-bye to those pesky stains!

  1. I love oxiclean. It takes the stain right out the first time.. Also, they have great mail in rebates for it too.

  2. I swear by it also. I put a scoop in every load as well. Keeps the colors vibrant and helps the extra tough/ more soiled clothes come out looking awesome.

  3. I would really like to see if this will work on my whites which are greying. I don’t recall this happening so much in the past. I would be curious to know if it is a change in using liquid detergent over powder, the water…..

    • Give it a shot – you may be surprised. Try with one item first before throwing in all the rest.
      It perhaps may be the detergent. Or even just the residue in clothing.
      Perhaps pre-soaking/pre-treating will be something to try or even just throwing in some OxiClean in the wash with your detergent.

  4. That is probably my biggest mistake, not letting the stained clothing soak long enough, I guess I am going to have to give Oxiclean another shot!!
