As the mother of a large family, I do a LOT of laundry and that’s on a good day! Now with kitten season in full swing and another litter of foster kittens to care for, I wash even more laundry each day! Sometimes, I admit, as much as I love what I do, it gets a little overwhelming.

I’m always on the lookout to streamline my laundry chores and one of the best ways I’ve found is Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi.

Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi are individual laundry pods of concentrated liquid laundry detergent. Purex has done all the measuring for me and packed a wallop of cleaning power from of Oxi and Zout Stain Remover into cute little pods. I just toss one into my machine, turn it on and walk away. Viola! Clean sweet smelling laundry at the end of the cycle. Purex UltraPacks are made for all washing machines including HE machines.

Even all that laundry from the kitties comes out ultra clean. Their formula contains pureed pumpkin and it stains like nobody’s business…the Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi even cuts through that mess with ease. If it cleans all of that, my standard household laundry is easy peasy!

Purex is also holding a sweepstakes right now! All you have to do is find the red football jersey hidden somewhere on the Purex Website! Its called the Find The Red Jersey and WIN Sweepstakes and you can CLICK HERE TO ENTER!

That’s not all! TWO lucky life in the lost world readers will win a VIP coupon to try new Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi for themselves!

    My hardest laundry dilemma is that we ALWAYS get spots that look like oil stains on our solid colored shirts and blouses.

UGH!
