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.
