Purex plus Oxi #Review and #Giveaway

Laundry. The number one dreaded word in our household! Neither my husband nor I look forward to laundry day on Sunday. The piles are never ending and the stains are always there.
Finding the right detergent is quite the job! We need a laundry detergent that is strong enough to work on my husbands work clothes that are stained daily from working with steel to our eldest who seems to love to clean the dust off the school gymnasium floor! Our youngest is a whole new world of stains usually food and dirt stains. On top of that the laundry detergent needs to be gentle enough for our sensitive skin! Just a small order right?
I was delighted to be given the chance to try out Purex plus Oxi laundry detergent! Purex plus Oxi is formulated to work against over one hundred and one of the toughest stains your family can throw at it! Not only has it been tested against a wide variety of stains but it is also hypoallergenic – perfect for those little ones with sensitive skin (and big kids!).
Finally it was time to put Purex plus Oxi to the test! We had a tough laundry week with lots of final soccer practices and tryouts, the Terry Fox run, work clothes from my husband and not to mention all the dirt stained pants from everyday fun out in the sun that had piled up so we were ready to go!
Purex plus Oxi has a light, fresh scent that both my son and I loved! We tested the bottle against my husband’s work clothes and it worked well at removing any residue left over from chemicals from work along with leaving a pleasant, fresh smell. It worked wonders on our kids clothes that were covered in dust, dirt from outside and food stains. Purex plus Oxi even removed the coffee stains from my scrub pants (for some reason I am constantly spilling coffee at work – I am so clumsy!).


A pretty awesome tip I found out? Purex plus Oxi laundry detergent is so powerful you can even use it to pre-treat your toughest stains! There goes having to purchase multiple bottles for laundry around the house!! All you have to do is pour a little bit of the Purex plus Oxi onto the stain and rub the stained fabric together using your fingers. Wait five minutes and add the clothing into the washer as usual. Pretty awesome, right?!

Organic Dairy #FightPesticides

When I had children I began to question a lot of our habits and purchases. One of the first areas we looked at were the type of food products we were purchasing and where they were coming from. Our children and their health mean so much to us! We began the long road to educating ourselves about organic vs non organic food products.

So what does organic mean?? Organic refers to the process in which food and fiber are grown and processed. Organic farmers do not use pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics and synthetic hormones. Do not confuse natural with organic! Stonyfield has an awesome table on their website that outlines the great differences between these two tables and you can find it here.
Dairy plays a huge role in our family. Our children love their yogurt, cheeses and milk. You can imagine my shock when I found out that non organic dairy is produced from cows that are injected with synthetic hormones. These hormones work to increase the weight of the cattle along with milk production. These hormones can actually lead to increased infections in cows.

I feel it is important for us to know where our food is coming from. We 100% support buying locally grown produce, dairy and meat from our local farmers. It is important that our children learn to appreciate all the care and love that has gone into our growing our food by our local farmers.

Check out this fantastic video from Stonyfield: Obsessively Organic, Purely Delicious. What are your thoughts on purchasing organic dairy?
