When I passed the “putting food in the hair” stage, I totally thought I would be free of stains. Boy, was I wrong! I quickly learned there are different stains at different life stages. I’m dealing with two different stains with a toddler and a school-aged boy. My toddler gets art supplies everywhere while my six year old is a sports fanatic. Thankfully, OxiClean™ Max Force Pre-Treaters are there to remove the stains at all stages of life.
Right now, Damian is playing football and basketball. Football playing time means lots of dirt and grass stains. He plays hard and it shows – both in his smile and jersey. Thanks to OxiClean™ Max Force, I’m able to tackle the tough stains. For grass stains, the Max Force Gel Stick is my favorite.
After running several drills, Damian had some grass and dirt stains form. Before discovering OxiClean™, I would panic when I saw stains on jerseys or uniform pants. I could never truly remove the stains and removing them would give me the greatest headaches.
The Max Force Gel Stick can be used on all washable whites and colored fabrics – including jerseys. If you have sensitive fabrics that are prone to color change, don’t let the product stand for more than 5 minutes. For most fabrics, you can treat now and wash later – up to 7 days before washing. I let the product stand for an hour before throwing it in the wash and it came out beautifully.
The only fabrics that it should not be used on are silk, wool, leather and fabrics labeled dry cleaning only.
To use OxiClean™ Max Force Gel Stick:
- Place Gel Stick directly onto the stain, press down to dispense gel and gently rub into fabric. You may or may not need multiple dabs.
- Let stand for 5 minutes or up to a week, depending on the severity of the stain.
- Wash with detergent in the warmest water the garment will accept.
The stains are gone! I’m telling you I have never been a laundry guru and OxiClean™ has changed my life. Not one hint of a grass stain on this puppy!
The Max Force Gel Stick works spectacularly with grass, chocolate, perspiration, bbq sauce, and mustard. If you have a little athlete, this will be your best friend.
Paxton doesn’t get as many grass stains as Damian. Instead, we get a lot of paint/marker/crayon stains. Anything to color with. And he always manages to get into my art supplies and not the washable, kid-friendly stash. Oy! This stain was purple marker and not one of the kid ones. I literally just bought this shirt and was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to get the stain out.
I used OxiClean™ Max Force Spray and it was so easy. The guidelines are pretty similar as the gel stick. The only difference is you spray the product rather than dab and rub. Since this stain was with not-so-kid-friendly art supplies, I decided to let it sit for two days. While it is effective on ink, it may not remove all of it. In this case it was very effective.
Miracles, people! Do you see any hint of purple on this shirt?! None! You can see the faint print of the shirt and that’s it. That’s a big “mom win.” I also think it means I’m growing up. I think.
If you have tough greasy stains from oil, grease, or butter, I suggest the Max Force Foam. Damian got a little carried away with pancakes and the melted garlic butter for the artichoke we had for lunch. Okay, a lot carried away. He was trying to scoop up as much garlic as possible, which means butter went everywhere. Butter and oil stains are one of the toughest stains to get out but not with the Max Force Foam.
To get the stain out, I pumped the foam onto stains, rubbed in a circular motion, and left it alone for 15 minutes. Like the other Max Force products, you can let it sit for as little as five minutes or up to a week.
You can’t even see the sticky, garlicky, buttery mess anymore. OxiClean™ Max Force Foam did all the work and I got to enjoy my family.
