The Laundry Monstah

I don't know about you, but my laundry fairly breeds on it's own in my washing machine. I'm challenged with a 3.5 year old boy who can create messes as only a 3.5 year old boy can.

Um, How did you get pizza sauce behind your shirt collar again?

I also am blessed with a guy who works hard all day, a good chunk of the time outside. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow and all that. Although lately it has been on the rain, rain, rain side. Hello, pungent laundry!

The folks at MomSelect presented me with an opportunity to try all small & mighty Free Clear. The powerful 3x concentrated laundry detergent means they have been able to redesign a smaller bottle, offering the benefits of a bulk buy in a bottle that is easier to pour, store and carry. A formula 3x concentrated also means that I get to use less per wash, and a 96 oz. bottle should last me over three months.

I'm not a fragrance kind of gal, and so I'm enjoying that I can get the odors and stains out of my family laundry while using the Free Clear formula that contains no dyes, perfumes or enzymes. My clothes smell like, well clean clothes when I stuff them into the drawers and prepare for the next round of washing.

Try it Yourself - a Giveaway!
I have two coupons good for one free all small & mighty 3x concentrate (maximum value $6.50).

I haven't had any laundry adventures in a while...those tend to clear out when little boys grow up :) But I do remember that Matt used to wipe his mouth after every meal on the INSIDE of his T-shirts so I had to check around the neck of every shirt he wore to see what he left behind!

I have a two year old, so I have a laundry adventure almost every day!!! I deal with stains that are almost impossible to get out, toys in pockets, marker, crayon, dirt and most recently potty training mishaps:) I could really use this!

I've been a nurse for 27 years, I remember helping another nurse friend of mine get out blood stains on her brand new pristine white lab coat. Thanks for the giveaway, visiting from Mom dot.

Both of my kids are working in grounds maintenance at a golf course this summer. When it has been raining, they come home caked in mud. That leads to an interesting laundry adventure!

My boyfriend and I spent our first date at a concert.We got to a few concerts a year and get tee-shits to remember the night. Well I got a black tee-shirt and he got a white one and after washing them together his is now kinda tie-dyed gray.

My husband works on a golf course during the summers. Often his work includes having to work in the streams that run through the golf course......along with the pond that they use for the watering.

This pond is guarded by one very mean, very poopy goose.

My husband comes home smelling like swamp water with a hefty frosting of goose poop for good measure.

I also have six kids, so the laundry adventures never end here.

Ostomy bag explosions from my youngest, Parker. The terrifying 'stuff' that come from his trach. Medicine stains. And cloth diapers.

We do A LOT of laundry!

I feel like I save my laundry adventure until the very very end, when no one has sock or underware and we have already bought a few bags at walmart to cover the days I didn't feel like it. I have a 5yr old daughter who is always covered in some sort of something that never comes out no matter how I pretreat or follow the stain bible I have, so I dred doing it. I scooped up it all and dumped it into the guest-bathroom bath tub. Which only made it seem worse. I think 2 more loads and the tub will be free and clear again!

I am the primary laundry person in my home because my hubbie doesn't know how to seperate darks from whites. He just throw them all in there together.

Right after my husband and I bought our first house, we found we had to replace the entire under slab plumbing! To save a little money, my husband dug access to the pipes underneath the house. His clothes were incredibly dirty - so much so that I first hosed him down outside fully clothed then made him strip by the door before he could come inside! I washed those clothes multiple times to get the dirt/mess out!

LOL. I love this. I really don't want to enter, I just wanted to tell you that I studied my son and his pizza. He is 22 months old, and takes the pizza and tried to put it down the back of his shirt, thus getting the sauce on his neck, ears, shirt.. you name.. Luckily my husband does the laundry.. I just put it away :)

I think my biggest laundry adventure is every 2-3 days matching up our families socks! I really do think the dryer eats the socks up,lol!

Hmm I always seem to have a pile of laundry that needs some work in some way. It is especially crazy to a have a 1 year old that likes to throw clothes out of the basket -whether they are folded or not!
I really like the Small Mighty detergent too! Got it at CVS a month or so ago.

With two toddler boys and a husband who works outside, our house if full of laundry adventures! My latest was after one of my sons fell asleep on the couch and left drool marks on one of the pillows. For what I thought would be a fast fix, I threw it in the washing machine, not noticing my husband had already loaded our whites. Needless to say, this red pillow turned the whole load pink (which did not go over well in a house full of boys!)

My biggest laundry adventure was last summer when we were at the Dixie Youth World Series in Georgia and I had to get up at 6am every morning to wash the uniform from the night before!

Have you ever washed and dryed crayons? All it took was once to learn that checking pockets was invaluable. Our family of five loves all small & mighty--even more than crayons!

My best laundry adventure is washing my teens sports uniforms during their sports season. They don't want to take a chance in messing up the uniforms.

I also have a hubby who works outside all day. In addition to that I have a messy 3 year old, and an almost 1 year old who has boycotted bibs!!! Laundry here is a disaster!
