Making Peace with White Shirts and Free Giveaway

"Free Giveaway" is kind of redundant, huh?

Anyway, whoever thought it was a good idea to put little boys into white uniform shirts probably saw the little boys so cute and fresh about 2 minutes after they dressed, because that's as long as those shirts stay clean. Now that our school requires us to buy our uniforms from Land's End, it can get pretty expensive when my 6-year-old ruins his shirts. Add pizza and spaghetti to hot lunch day, and I cannot believe how dirty those things get.

But until the school sees the error of its ways and allows the kids to wear the dark blue polo shirts, I will be fighting the good fight. Usually I set them aside and once a week I bleach the hell out of them. It's a little inconvenient and wasteful because I have to have a special load for only 5 shirts and whatever white socks I can find.

So when I was given the chance to try out Clorox 2 laundry booster, I was skeptical. Nothing but very super concentrated bleach worked on these shirts. Guess what? It worked. Looked like I'd bleached them.

They also have a new site where you can upload your messiest pictures and see others' laundry nightmares.

Want to try? Leave a comment. I've got a couple of coupons for a FREE bottle. Yep, FREE.

really? It worked? I'm all skeptical. You need to post some befores and afters shots.

Is it the regular Clorox 2 stuff or something special?

I should totally have posted some befores and afters, but I didn't think about it until after I washed the stupid shirts. Duh.
