Stain Fighter & Color Booster-CLOSED

I recently received a coupon for a FREE bottle of Clorox 2 from Mom Central to test and review. There were 3 different variaties to choose from: Unscented, Lavender and Meadow Breeze (I may have gotten the last name wrong, sorry)-I chose the Unscented.

We have an HE front load washer, so I had to look at it to see if it was compatible… and yes, this is HE compatible. This is a NEW formula and is thicker than the ‘old’ formula. I don’t like it when the liquid goes all over! This NEW formula is much easier to pour. It’s 2X concentrated formula, so you don’t have to use as much. Another plus.

On the bottle it says, Stain Fighter & Color Booster. It is supposed to work better on tough stains and brighten colors. I’ve used it on both whites and colored clothes to see the difference…. It definitely does whiten whites and doesn’t fade colors! Plus, plus. I had a really dingy towel that was used on our doggie and it came out nice and clean! Our red and blue shirts haven’t faded either.

They also have a Money Back Guarantee! Go ahead and take a look at their new website, Dare To Be Colorful, for information on washing, stain removal and more!

Good news for you! I have 4 coupons to give away for a FREE 33 OZ. LIQUID or 49.2 OZ DRY CLOROX 2 STAIN FIGHTER & COLOR BOOSTER, so you can try it for yourself!!

Here is how to get your chance to snag one of the 4 coupons:

Say Boo to the Flu

It’s about that time of year again. Flu season. The Say Boo to the Flu program is dedicated to bringing information to everyone about prevention of the Flu with videos, cleaning and disinfecting tips, activities for the family and listings of local Flu Vaccination Events!

What is the flu?

Influenza or the flu is a contagious respiratory infection caused by the flu virus. It is very similar to the common cold but symptoms are worse and it’s caused by a different virus.

Symptoms include:

*Sudden onset of symptoms
*High Fever
*Dry cough
*Achy head & muscles
*Extreme fatigue

Prevention Tips:

*Wash hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.
*Cough into your elbow instead of your hand where it’s less likely to spread germs.
*Disinfect the Top 5 Hot Spots:
-Phone receivers
-Refrigerator/microwave handles
-Light switches

For the first time ever, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expanded the flu vaccine recommendations to include all healthy children and youth between 6 months and 18 years old. Get vaccinated in October and November BEFORE flu season peaks!

Say Boo to the Flu program (comprised of Families Fighting Flu, Visiting Nurse Associations of America and The Clorox Company) was created to help educate families on the importance of flu vaccination and other prevention tips.

Families Fighting Flu, Inc. (FFF) is a non-profit, volunteer-based corporation established in 2004, made up of families and healthcare practitioners who have experienced first-hand the death of a child due to the flu, or have had a child experience severe medical complications from the flu.

The Visiting Nurse Associations of America (VNAA) is the official national association for nonprofit, community-based Visiting Nurse Agencies (VNAs), who care for and treat approximately 4 million patients each year.
