This post is written in partnership with Oxi Clean as part of a paid ambassadorship.
Every parent will tell you that the hardest part of doing laundry is figuring out how to remove stains from kids’ clothes.
We all know kids experience severe difficulty in keeping mud, chocolate, ketchup, and other liquids away from their clothes. After all, taking good care of and preserving your clothes is a habit which takes years to establish.
If you always go through their wardrobe only to find he or she has stained her best piece of clothing, there might be a way to save it, by preventing the stain, to begin with.
Prevention is best
When it’s time to draw, paint, or work on a craft project, use a plastic smock. Full-coverage smocks protect clothing from messes, so kids can just focus on the fun. When your child is done creating for the day, the smock can easily and quickly be wiped clean.
If your child is helping you with cooking, use an apron. These machine washable garments are easy for kids to wear over their clothes to protect them from the messes made while cooking.
(Pre-) Fighting Stains
My least favorite part of doing laundry is fighting stains. Whether it’s perspiration in the husband’s work uniforms, juice on the daughter’s shirt, or grass stains in the son’s sports uniform, I dread it all. I often find myself discovering a stain as I am loading the washer and then have to go to my computer to search for a way to remove blood, grass, or oily stains.
I love to use the OxiClean On-The-Go Stain Pen like an eraser to eliminate stains.
