The spring season is upon us, and I’m from Ohio so everyone here is ready to get outside and enjoy some nicer weather. So that can only mean one thing… STAINS! Little league sports start up which bring home grass and mud stains, everyone’s favorite. People are eating outside, watching ball games, or just on the patio where the breeze is, which cause for food stains here and there.
Everyone loves the spring weather but definitely not the stains that come along with it. So I thought that I would share with you some different ways to keep those spring stains from ruining your clothes.
So your son gets home from his baseball game and he is covered from head to toe in dirt because he had to slide into home plate in order to score the winning run. Now as worried as you are that his uniform may not come clean, you can’t get mad, after all he was the MVP of the game. Then you realize that you too have a stain, a mustard stain on your shirt from when you were eating your soft pretzel with mustard and sprang from your seat to cheer your son as he scored the winning run. Now you’re just wondering how to get all these stains out.
Well here is what I would recommend… BIZ! I would fill either your laundry room sink or use the per-wash cycle on your washing machine with warm water and a scoop of Biz, maybe even two scoops after all he was covered head to toe. I would throw his uniform in and let it soak for 30 minutes maybe even an hour. Now for the mustard stain I would re-wet the stained area with warm water and apply Biz directly to the stained area. Don’t have to let this sit long maybe 5-10 minutes and then you can throw your shirt in the wash with your detergent and some more Biz. When you think most of the dirt has come out and the water looks dirty I would throw the uniform in the wash with your detergent and some more Biz as well.
It’s really as easy as that! So I know I’m excited for spring to be here and I’m sure you are too. Don’t let the spring stains get you down. Just use BIZ!
I just received the cutest pink invitation for a baby shower for one of my girlfriends. Yes, this is her first baby. The couple is so very excited, awaiting, counting down every minute. Enjoying all the attention from their family, friends and even people they don’t know. With their first baby coming along, little do they know, their entire world is about to be taken for a spin.
I noticed on the invitation the suggested gift registries for two stores. It is fun to see all they have registered for; I chuckle when I see some of the things. Two scrapbook and accessories; yeah, good luck finding time for that. I breeze through the registry but I already know what my gift is going to be.
After seeing many of my friends with their first baby, I give very practical gifts for the new, soon- to-be overwhelmed Mom. I start with a laundry basket, find one that is either pink or blue, in this case I go with pink. Grab some ribbon and lace from the craft store and weave it through the top of the basket to give it some flare. I then fill the basket with items I know she is going to use. Diapers, wipes, bath soap, burp cloths, hooded towels and of course Biz Stain Fighter. Most new Moms are afraid to use anything but a baby detergent, but you can always trust a product your mom used and a product that has been on the market for over 40 years. Plus, Baby’s clothes are far too cute and expensive to have to throw them away because of a stain. And again, good luck finding time to treat every stain before it goes into the wash. So I tell my friends to add Biz Stain Fighter, an in-wash booster for colors & whites along with detergent and forget about stains. I know they are going to have more important things to worry about.
Everyone’s has laundry, so this is a topic we can all relate to. We’re all trying to save money and a great place to start is in the laundry room. Here are 10 tips to keep us looking our best, while keeping the cost down.
- Wear it again. Begin asking yourself can this we worn again? Let’s say you wore a sweater for a few hours –no need to wash it, hang it back in your closet to be worn again.
- Hidden Stains. You don’t have time to seek through your family’s dirty laundry for stains, especially if you didn’t know they are there in the first place. Just add Biz to every load, along with your regular detergent to take care of those sneaky stains.
- Care Instructions. Believe it or not, there is helpful information on those annoying garment tags. If the tag says, ‘Dry Clean Only’, don’t risk putting it through the wash, you could be out a shirt.
- Treat stains ASAP. It is not always possible to rush to the laundry room, every time we glob ourselves while we’re out and about. Dab the stained area with a baby wipe, this will prevent the stain from setting into the fabric. Re-wet the stain and pre-treat with Biz.
- Cool Water. Wash in the coolest water possible, this will help prevent shrinking and fading.
- Bleach. Bleach can be very harsh on delicate fabrics. Grab Biz instead, it is safe for colors and whites and doesn’t contain actual bleach.
- Drying. Many garments such as sweaters, bras and jeans can be laid out to dry. Toss them in to remove the wrinkles, then, lay them out to dry.
- Dull and Dingy. Don’t toss those socks just yet. Revive your whites by soaking them in Biz. Go ahead, leave them overnight for whites, whiter than white.
- Dryer sheets. A half dryer sheet works as well as a whole one. Cut them in half to get more uses. Used ones can be used to dust furniture or remove pet hair from your clothing.
- Load Size. Don’t automatically use the same load setting for every load. Washing less than a full load is not cost-efficient. However do not overstuff, that can effect the cleaning power.
