Tips For Tackling Tough Laundry Stains For Working Moms! #OxiClean #Partner

    To say that I am a busy mom is an understatement.  As I like to explain when people ask, I'm literally going all the time between having a career as a full-time educator, publishing a successful blog, and raising children in New York City.  Most days, I am lucky to fit in some "Me" time just to take a shower so I often do get backed up when it comes to doing laundry.     It is especially frustrating when I have trouble getting stains out of clothes because I just don't have a lot of time in my schedule to spend scrubbing them out of our dirty laundry.  For a long time, I have been on the lookout for a laundry detergent that removes a wide-range of stubborn, dried-on stains the first time around to maximize on the limited time that I have to do laundry.     OxiClean™ Laundry detergent truly has been the answer to my Working Mom prayers!  It saves me lots of time because it tackles stains in just one wash and does not contain … [Read more...]

Teaching Kids How To Do Laundry With The Purex PowerShot! #PurexInsiders #Giveaway @Purex #Ad

    I've always been a firm believer in empowering my children to be independent.  This has been due to the fact that I want them to be self-sufficient in the future and because I am a full-time Working Mom so everyone has to contribute to the household chores.  Although I always do the bulk of the laundry, I have been teaching my older son how to load the washing machine and the dryer in order to wash his school uniforms on a weekly basis.     One of the greatest challenges of teaching him how to wash and dry clothes has been helping him to gauge how much detergent to pour out depending on the amount of clothing that he is washing.  I've noticed that he sometimes uses too much because I see suds in the machine even after the load is done washing.  Recently, I have figured out the solution to this problem since Purex PowerShot detergent does the measuring for you!     New Purex PowerShot detergent makes our lives more simple because it takes the guesswork out of our laundry routine … [Read more...]

Unlock An Unexpected Dose Of Joy! #MusicToYourNose @GainLatino @Gain #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of Gain. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating. All opinions are my own.     Many people don't know a lot about the Bronx aside from what they have seen on television or in the movies.  This borough of New York City is often depicted in a less than favorable light and we don't get the credit that we deserve for being full of decent and hardworking people.  That is why I was so excited when I found out that Gain was coming to the Bronx to transform local neighborhood laundromats into something special.  I immediately knew that this would help to spread an unexpected dose of joy throughout our community!     This past Friday, I had the pleasure of meeting Bronx-born musician Leslie Grace, who has partnered with Gain, to showcase how art, music and culture collide to celebrate the launch of six community-decorated Laundromats throughout the Bronx, Spanish Harlem and Washington … [Read more...]

Purex Baby Detergent Is Not Just For Babies! Review and Giveaway

    Those of you who have been following this blog for awhile know that my six year old son suffers from moderate to severe asthma and allergies.  In addition to this, he has always had extremely sensitive skin and we have had to be careful about the soaps and detergents that we expose him to regularly.  This is especially a concern with regards to the laundry detergent that we use to wash his clothes.     We were very excited to learn that Purex was coming out with a laundry detergent that is made especially for babies.  Although my son is not a baby, due to his allergies and health concerns, we need to use a detergent that will remove stubborn stains without hurting his delicate skin.  Purex Baby detergent keeps his clothes bright, white, and clean like we have come to expect from all the other Purex products that we use.  However, it is sensitive enough for our son's skin.     This detergent boasts a dermatologist-tested formula that is hypoallergenic and washes clothes with a … [Read more...]

Purex UltraPacks Liquid Laundry Detergent Review and Giveaway

          Lately, I have been teaching my sons the ins and outs of doing laundry.  It's not that I expect them to do their own laundry at ages 5 and 8 but I do hope to raise independent men who can take care of themselves.  I allow them to help me sort the clothes and even put laundry detergent and softener into the wash.      Over time, my 8 year old has gotten quite good at filling up the cap of detergent but I have not allowed my little one to help with that yet due to fear of him spilling it.  Thanks to Purex, I don't have to worry about that anymore because they have figured out a way to simplify laundry by doing away with the mess, the spills, and the heavy jugs.      In February, 2012, Purex will be launching new UltraPacks detergent.  You might wonder what makes this detergent different from other detergents that you have tried out in the past...  New Purex UltraPacks are convenient pre-dosed liquid detergent packs that make doing laundry easier than ever.  You … [Read more...]
