In this house, we do laundry. A LOT of laundry. And rarely a day goes by that I don’t have to pre-treat stains. It’s kind of inevitable with three mischievous, curious and (usually) independent boys. The last two weeks have been spent landscaping our backyard and that has produced it’s own kind of dirty laundry. As the weather gets warmer and my boys spend more of their time outside, the laundry will only increase on the dirtiness scale. My kids play hard; they are hard on their clothes. I need something that will get the dirty and grime out, but protects color and isn’t too harsh on the fabric. New all Radiant laundry detergent has me covered and I use it in more than just the soap dispenser in my washing machine!
3 WAYS YOU CAN USE all RADIANT LAUNDRY DETERGENT
1. As your regular laundry detergent. As I mentioned, we have been landscaping our backyard for the last two weeks. This past Friday, we laid the sod. all laundry detergent has a new formula available that will get the grime out without being too harsh on your clothes! all Radiant laundry detergent’s patented Fiber Shield technology attacks stains and residue while restoring whites and protecting colors – exactly what this momma needs! Our clothes take a beating; we work hard and play harder. all Radiant can handle the dirt and stains without manhandling our clothes. It helps restore whites and colors stay steadfast. Laying the sod was a muddy task and the perfect way to test out the stain removal power of all Radiant. Our clothes had a good layer of mud caked on them.
I ran the clothes through a single load in hot water with a pre-soak cycle. The only stain treating I did was on my husband’s hat with the detergent itself because, well, did you see it? Eww. I just poured it right on there and let it sit for maybe five minutes. It sat in the pre-soak cycle as well, but I didn’t do a single bit of scrubbing on any of the clothes.
I was quite happy with the detergent and it’s performance.! I am anxious to see how the detergent will help protect colors and keep our whites looking their best with extended use. I loved that the detergent wasn’t overly strongly scented as well. This is perfect for a house full of boys. Smelly, stinky, sweaty, play hard boys that are rough on their clothes and constant stain magnets.
2. As a stain treatment at home. One of the things I actually really liked about all Radiant detergent was the stain-treating power it had on my husband’s hat. As I mentioned, I the only stain-treating I did to this load of muddy work clothes was with the detergent on the hat. My husband had worn it nearly every day for the past two weeks out in the sun and dirt and rain and wind. It hadn’t been washed in all that time so there was two-weeks worth of man sweat grime in that hat. YUCK.
Even though I didn’t pre-treat as early as I could (or should) have, all Radiant did a great job at removing all that gross smelly man-gunk, even from the seams of the hat. There was only one small spot that it didn’t come all the way out and I plan to wash it again and let it soak just a little longer this time.
3. On-the-go Stain Treatment. It seems like my kids can’t leave the house without getting something on their clothes most of the time. Usually I don’t sweat it too much; they are boys and it’s just clothing. But some times it’s a stain that I know will be a nightmare to get out later. Blood is one that comes right to mind; that is definitely easier to remove when it is fresh. So, I filled a small travel-size toiletry bottle with some all Radiant detergent and I can use it on stains that need attention as soon as possible, no matter where I am. I left it full strength in my little bottle, I can dilute it at the time if I don’t need the full strength stain remover power.
It fits right in my diaper bag and is just enough for those little “oops!” moments in life. I keep it in a zip-top bag which doubles as a place to store any wet clothing that I’ve pre-treated or washed out until I can get it home to my washing machine and a scrub brush.
