Oxiclean Max Force: Does It Really Work Review, Coupons, and Giveaway CLOSED




Winner - 38 - Chadzgirlz

As a mom, I have dealt with tough to remove stains from the day my daughter was born.  OxiClean has always been my favorite but there have been times when that hasn't even worked.  The toughest stains, I think, are breastfed baby blowouts.  You know the ones I am talking about - the ones where you put your baby in the cutest outfit with a new diaper.  You walk away for 5 seconds, come back and hear the noise that no mother wants to hear - one push by that adorable baby and the diaper holds no chance and the outfit is ruined.  Worse yet is that this doesn't happen at home where you can immediately treat it (or it happens as you are already late for something) so you throw the outfit in a bag and wait to get home.  So it sits for at least a day - untreated and in your mind - horrendously stained for good.  One more outfit for rags!

This has happened to me on more than one occasion and boy, do I grieve and cringe every time this happens.  I always pray that Gabriel can keep it in the diaper.


I was sent Oxiclean's brand new Max Force Power Packs and Gel Stick to test to see if it would work on my toughest stains.  I had some tough stains for it work on so I was curious to see what would happen.  I tweeted that I was testing this and several other moms responded back with "let me know if it works because I need something too" so I took pictures to document my test. 



Test 1: Chocolate Stains Out of Gracie's Apron - these have been there for several weeks. 
(She tossed it in her toybox and I just found it!)

Before:

 
  

After:


This apron only had to be washed one time and every spot was out of it perfectly. It was great because normally after it sitting for a while I would have been fortunate to have gotten most of the stain out of it.  I let the Max Force Gel sit on it for about a minute and that was it.  

Test 2:  Gabriel's dress shirt.  He had a blowout two days before.  It happened at church and I had forgotten about it.  Most likely never coming off - ruined for life.

 

Applying the Max Force Gel - super easy as all you do is press down and it has bumps that allow you rub in the gel.  No having to do it by hand anymore! 

Before:


After:

 
You could still the stains and I really thought this was the best it would be able to do but I decided to try one more time.  I treated the stains again and this time I threw in a Max Force Power Pack into the washer to see if it would help.

After, Second Time:


I was thrilled!  No more stains!  I have used the stick over and over again and LOVE it!  It has gotten out stains that have been washed and then dried on.  I now have this stick in my diaper bag so that I can immediately treat those blowouts.  

Oxiclean's Max Force Gel Packs and Gel Stick have begun hitting the shelves all over the country and should be in all the stores by March 15th.  I will be buying the gel sticks for my house, my diaper bag, and one for my husband's work.  

The Power Packs will be $3.99 for 10 paks, $6.99 for 18 paks, and $9.99 for 30 packs and the Gel Stick will be $3.99.

You can save $1.50/1 OxiClean Max Force Power Paks or $.75/1 OxiClean Max Force Gel Stick to make them even cheaper!

the most horrible stain I had to deal with was a blowout both ways on the baby and on me when we were traveling/moving- clothes were locked up in back for me and his clothes were waded in a baggie and sat for days until the washer got hooked up when we finally got to our destination- no such luck- jeans of mine ruined and made sloppy pants and tossed his outfit because not enough cleaners in the world.

The daily stains though, the sweat, the food drips of missed mouth all add up.

The worst stain I ever had was when I forgot a tube of lipstick in my pocket and it was washed and dried with all of my jeans. What a mess! It took most of the day, but I finally got the stains out.

I deal with chocolate milk stains on a regular basis. But since the shirts are white, I'm usually able to get the stains out in 2 washes or less using bleach.

My worst stain was from spilling coffee on my brand new khaki skirt while driving to work one day. I had to stop fast while I was sipping my coffee and it dumped all over me, causing a quick trip to Walmart for a new work outfit. And I thought the skirt was ruined. For some reason I didn't throw it away, but didn't ever wear it again. Two years later, I found it & tried a cleaning product on it & ran it through the wash twice - and the khaki skirt looked brand new again! I was very happy. :-)

My worst stains were last season when my son played Little League and their uniforms included white pants. I could never completely remove the dirt and grass stains. With baseball signups this week, I would love to give this a try!

My son often gets tomato sauce, bbq sauce, or paint from art (so much for the smock). It is touch and go with the paint and the sauce depending on how long it sits sometimes is a forever stain.

My oldest son is a chef and has to wear white jackets. Needless to say he comes home with gravy, grease and marinara stains which are a nightmare to get out.
