Can you believe that Memorial Day is just around the corner?  Only 20 days away in fact! In our family, we love to BBQ (well, Frank barbecues and we eat it – ha ha!) and we also love to have family and friends over to join us. You know we’ll be having a Memorial Day Barbecue at our home! At our barbecues, we enjoy appetizers, drinks, games, conversation, karaoke and food!

With the enjoyment of food and friends comes a wide array of tough stains. Think about the wide variety of foods you enjoy at a Memorial Day BBQ – barbecue sauce, salad, butter, and more! Let’s not forget about the inevitable grass stains you find on your children’s pants from them rolling around in the grass. This is where Clorox 2® cleaning solutions come into play.

I love to use Clorox 2 products! I use the Clorox 2 Stain Remover Precision Pen (applying it directly to stains), the Clorox 2 Stain Fighter and Color Booster Packs (to help remove stains and brighten my darks) and Clorox 2 Darks & Denims! I love this detergent – especially with having 6 kids who constantly need their jeans (and darks) cleaned! Clorox 2 Darks & Denims will help clean your darks and denims looking clean and fresh. . It’s amazing how they actually get the tomato sauce stains out of our clothes! 

I love to use Clorox 2 products! I use the Clorox 2 Stain Remover Precision Pen, the Clorox 2 Stain Fighter and Color Booster Packs, and Clorox 2 Darks & Denims! I love that we can have a great time at our Memorial Day BBQ and not have to worry about the aftermath of stains thanks to Clorox 2.

The Clorox 2 Stain Remover Precision Pen has two different sides on it, which makes it great for treating different types and sizes of stains. One side of the Stain Remover Precision Pen has a fine point for treating smaller stains and the other side has a broad tip for treating larger stains. I love that it is great for treating colors and is safe to use on whites! Even though it’s formulated specifically for colors, it’s still safe to use on whites. The Clorox 2 Stain Remover Precision Pen is designed to make laundry stain removal easy and convenient, with less mess. It pretreats tough stains like dirt and grass, barbecue sauce, red wine and more.

A detergent that we use quite often in our home is the Clorox 2 Darks & Denim Detergent. I love this detergent because it does a great job cleaning our darks and denims and getting the stains out. This is really important with us having six kids and all the laundry that gets done in our home. Clorox 2 Darks & Denims will help clean your darks and denims looking clean and fresh.

I like to add Clorox 2 Stain Remover and Color Booster Packs to brighten our laundry. I love these Booster Packs because they keep our colors brights, whiten our whites and remove stains from clothes. All you have to do is toss it into your washer (works on front-loaders too) along with your detergent and you’re done. Easy peasy with no mess and no hassle!

    Our grill finally gave out, and our backyard is a mess where we are adding a sun room onto our house, so I’m not sure if we will be doing much cooking out this summer, but it will be nice for next summer! I need the Clorox Stain fighter pen to carry with me! I’m as messy as my son is. 🙂
