Laundry Woes: Fighting Stains
Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 5, 2012 @ 9:19 am In Laundry | 4 Comments
As a Resolve® All-Stains  Brand Ambassador, I’m learning a lot about fighting stains and “resolving” one of my biggest laundry woes.
As you may remember, I don’t like to clean . I avoid it at all costs. Early in our marriage, hubs and I arranged a little division of labor. He would do dishes if I did laundry. Suh-weet! This was a great arrangement!
You see, I don’t really consider laundry “cleaning.” It’s pretty easy, typically doesn’t smell bad, and, thankfully, doesn’t get moldy like week-old leftovers in the refrigerator.
Plus, I rarely have to get my hands dirty.
Laundry is therapeutic for me. I’m a fairly lazy laundress. I rarely sort the clothes. I delegate whenever possible. But, I do try to do something every day because eight people can create a lot of dirty socks!
And, truth be told, I’ve been fairly lazy when it comes to pre-treating stains. While many garments have been passed from boy to boy to boy to boy for the last 14 years, rarely has there been a “hand-me-down” that didn’t sport a stain or two. I’m feeling a little convicted to change that.
Especially now that I’m buying cute girl clothes. (Just saying.)
So, when Resolve contacted me to check out their stainfighter, Resolve All Stains , I figured it was a great fit.
I remember reading one of Martha’s stain fighting cheat sheets  and thinking, “My life is too short.” I love a good mystery, but there’s no way I’m going to spend time trying to figure out what kind of stain that is and what to do about it.
Not with six kids! No way, no how.
But, Resolve All Stains, the Stain-fighter-formerly-known-as-Spray-N-Wash, combines oxygen and enzyme stain fighters in the same bottle, so you don’t have to pull a Remington Steele. I was surprised at how easy it was to pre-treat this very cute dress that my girl had blotched with ketchup and mustard.
You squeeze a little bit of both stain fighters on the stain at the same time and rub them together. Wash within 5 minutes and voila! Brand spanking new.
