Spray and Wash

Thank you, Crystal, for helping me find my new best friend.

Get this: my friend scrubs my clothes for me. All I do is rinse and spray and then wash. It's just that simple and my clothes come out looking good as new. No scrubbing involved...but I kind of feel inclined to rinse of the majority of the mess before tossing the offending item in with the rest of my laundry. Yuck!

Not that I'm not a huge fan of scrubbing poopy clothes, but I'm kinda not a huge fan.

Rachel, in two days, went through 7 onesies before I finally let her go naked (well, diapered). And that doesn't include all the blowouts that have involved my clothes, or her blankets. When she gets her poop face on, I have started to unsnap her clothes, pull them up to her arm pits and make her stand up until she is finished. Then I immediately change her diaper or risk getting smeared myself.

I don't mind scrubbing poopy clothes, really, but I can't do it all day long. I have a whole list of things to do.

My time is worth more than that to me. I can work for an hour and earn ten bucks, or I can scrub clothes for an hour and, yes, I'll have clean clothes, but I also will have chaffed hands and will have used up a lot more dish soap than is reasonable.

Or, I can spend less than 15 cents an ounce to have Spray and Wash scrub for me. I didn't use to think that an ounce was very much but truthfully an ounce is quite a bit. I don't think I even used an ounce today and I cleaned one of my shirts, 5 of Rachel's onesies, a spit up cloth, and a blanket--all in under 5 minutes.

I really don't know what is in this stuff, but it works amazingly well. One stain, two stains. Red stains, blue stains. Old stains, new stains. I feel like I could write a book, I am that passionate about it. Oh, and it also works equally well on whites and colors.

Blowouts are suddenly seeming a whole lot less depressing. (Not lazy, Crystal, ingenious!)

  1. I enjoy Shout as well. Sometimes now Karen's are so bad that you want to shout when you have to clean them up, and the Shout really does fairly well...both the gel and the spray kinds... what would we do without this miracle products?
