Refreshing Summer Clothes for Back To School with OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover


I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OxiClean. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Kids are kids, and kids play hard. As back to school time approaches, I’ve been spending my preplanning time sifting through the kid’s closets to see what shirts could be saved from the Summer time abuse.

White isn’t a color that I often buy, for obvious reasons. But sometimes, white still makes it’s way into our closets. As I dug through my kid’s closets, several shirts were found with old, set in stains and discoloration.

If I could save these shirts and refresh them for back to school, it would be a win win for my kids and my pocket book. We brought in the OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover to work it’s magic, could it really remove tough stains and freshen up whites?

Subject 1 – The Mickey Mouse shirt

  • Set in stains – Ice Cream, ketchup, grass and the unknown

Subject 2 – Kitty Shirt

  • Set in stains – Chocolate Milk and spaghetti

Subject 3 – Kite Shirt

  • Set in stain – Chocolate Milk


I don’t normally let stains set in like this, these shirts were kind of “let go” over the Summer. But if OxiClean could possible renew them, I was all for it!

I followed the instructions for tough stains, which included a soaking process of 1-6 hours depending on the strength of the stain. After the first round of a 6 hour soaking, I noticed a notable difference in the appearance of our whites – however, the stains were not fully removed.

I ran our whites through with a second – 6 hour soaking and then washed the load as normal. After the second time, I did notice even more of a difference.

Most of the set in stains were removed from the kitty shirt, with just a few minor spots still left on the sleeve.

I noticed a big difference in the overall brightening of this shirt. There are still a few stains left on the sleeve, which has been the napkin of my son after many meals. I really didn’t expect all of the stains to come out and was pleasantly surprised with the results.

This shirt had the best results and all chocolate milk was removed from the shirt. It needs to be noted that the stains were not as set in, compared to other two shirts.

I’m really impressed with the overall results of the OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover and plan to continue using it. This is a great way to keep white fresh all school year long and now I’m encouraged to remove the stains before letting them set in.
