Of the household chores I enjoy the most, laundry is at the top of the list. I barred my husband from doing laundry years ago, tired of shrunken shirts and darks washed with whites. It was probably a successful ploy all along, but I really don’t mind having the duty be all my own. I have a variety of products and like trying new things on the market, look for sales, and of course have a few favorites in my laundry product rotation. Still, if I can spend less time doing laundry, that’s always a bonus.
So, when approached by Arm & Hammer to see if I’d be interested in the Triple Chamber Challenge, I was curious. And when I learned more about the product I’d be trying, I enthusiastically said “Yes!” New Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean 3-IN-1 Power Paks! You see, Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean 3-IN-1 Power Paks are the only detergent boosted with the stain fighting power of OxiClean and the freshness of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. With three busy, sweaty, and outdoor-spring-loving kids this is an attractive addition to ‘the usual’ laundry detergent.
In the spring, my laundry turns from black, greys, and lots of denim to pastels and cotton pants. My detergent has to not only get out stains on light coloured fabric, there’s also a lot more ‘stuff’ getting into the clothes so having baking soda added in is smart thinking.
The Triple Chamber Challenge is not only to use 3 in 1 Power Paks tested on my laundry, but to do so for 3 months. 3 months during the spring when things get messy. And with two daughters that means a lot of pastels too. Yikes! But, knowing the trio of Arm & Hammer, OxiClean and Baking Soda was involved – I had faith!
At first blush, I learned quickly that Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean 3-IN-1 Power Paks have safety in mind as it took me a little bit to get the package open! You need to manipulate the red tab at the top by pushing it down, and zipping it across at the same time, to get the package open. This is important for families with young children who may mistake something squishy and colorful as something safe for them to touch. I really appreciate Arm & Hammer taking this concern into account when creating the packaging for their products.
Now that I’ve been using Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean 3 IN-1 Power Paks for well over a month now, I can confidently say that this product stands up to all the springtime stains and laundry joys we challenge it with. Grass stains, food drips and drops, sweat from hours on the trampoline, and musty towels left on the floor – this product delivers an efficient clean every time.
Need some laundry hack reminders? Arm & Hammer has you covered:
My laundry sorter has been my biggest help with being the person responsible for laundry for a family of 5. The kids know which is which (we sort by towels, whites, dark colours and light colours) and it makes it much easier to just grab a laundry bag and go. Of course, I haven’t found a magical fairy to fold the laundry, but they are on task with putting away their own.
Thanks, Arm & Hammer for this fresh perspective on laundry! These tips will come in handy this spring.
