Laundry is not for Wimps

The nice PR folks representing Clorox contacted me several weeks ago about reviewing their latest product, Clorox UltimateCare Premium Bleach. Considering laundry dunes taunt me and stains mock me I said, “Yes, please!” You know you revel in the mundane when you get excited to see a box of bleach on your doorstep.

Now I do not spent mucho bucks on bleach. Usually I just get whatever ole generic store brand variety is on the shelf. However, this bleach is special. It’s a creamy consistency that does not splash (I have ruined many a favorite T-shirt due to my hasty bleach slinging) and it actually has a pleasant smell and is gentle on fabric. Now when I’m pouring bleach down the toilet I want it to smell like I’m killing all sorts of vile germs. But do you really want your clothes to smell like an indoor pool?

I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical about this product, because it is bleach. Bleach is not sexy. Bleach is about as utilitarian as a toilet plunger or a kitchen sponge. But I have already gone through the entire bottle of Clorox UltimateCare Premium Bleach. So consider this a luxury bleach. There is nothing glamorous about washing dirty clothes so I’ll take any help I can get to make the job easier.

p.s. One helpful hint to the PR firms that pimp their client products on blogs…send a mom some coupons, will ya? And one helpful hint to Clorox…you might want to consider putting a child safety top on this product because the consistency is deceptively similar to hair conditioner and the scent is pleasant, unlike regular bleach.

    Okay so you’re the second I know to give this product a rave review. I’m going to have to give it a go! And know you’re in good company, the last load of laundry is still in the dryer – that dune never even made it out. ;o)

    I think I am afraid to wash anything that says it has bleach in it. Maybe I need a 101 on washing clothes with bleach.

    so? Do you love this new bleach and if so WHY? I always buy the cheapie generic myself because sodium hypochlorite is sodium hypochlorite after all.

    I like it. Love might be too strong a word. I mean can one really LOVE bleach?

    I will probably buy it again, but only if it’s on sale (and if I have a coupon…HINT HINT HINT CLOROX.) 😉
