A Laundry Review & Giveaway: Naturally Active Pure Oxygen Whitener

I am a mother of boys, three of them, and boys get dirty and get stains on their clothes.  Sometimes I even get stains on my clothes from my children.  It used to be that this wasn't an issue for me, I'd just spray some sort of stain remover on and then wash my clothes.  Well, now that we are taking the chemicals out of our home, those sorts of stain removers are no longer in my supply cabinet.

That is where today's review comes in!  See I have a really cute skirt than I love to wear, and it's a very light shade of khaki, really it's just barely darker than an eggshell type color.  The last time I wore it my toddler wrapped his hands around me and got a nice yellow mustard stain on the back of the skirt.  I didn't know about the mustard until after I took the skirt out of the dryer, and by then it's usually too late to remove a stain.  I tried several tricks and nothing worked. 

Then my Healthy Child Healthy World party kit arrived, and inside were some products for me to try, and to give away to my party guests.  The first item I decided to try was the Naturally Active Pure Oxygen Whitener by ecoSTOREusa.  I took out that lovely skirt with the bright yellow mustard stain, and applied a paste made from the Naturally Active Pure Oxygen Whitener and plain water.  I rubbed it into the stain let it set a minute, and then rinsed it away. 

This is where things get weird, at least to me, the yellow stain turned a sort of rust red color and I thought oh great I just made it worse (not that the skirt was wearable at all at this point).  So I tossed it up over the shower bar to dry and figured I'd try something else later.  When I went back to take it down after it had dried the stain, both yellow and rust red, was GONE!  That's right GONE!  A set in, two week old, yellow mustard stain was gone and I could once again wear my lovely skirt.

  1. Sounds like a great product!

  2. i like them all wow great site

  3. The pear shampoo & conditioner & the Cucumber shampoo & conditioner

  4. Seeing as how we're a non-toxic family, I would buy anything off their at least once :) the coconut vanilla hand wash sounds like it would smell good though.

  5. I think I would like their cleaning products and baby products.

  6. Of all the products I actually think I would like the Pure Oxygen Whitener best.

  7. I would love to try the vanilla bar soap. I love vanilla.

  8. I really need cleaning wipes-- I can never have enough!

  9. I love this! Really want to try everything, especially the detergent. I'm very sensitive to chemicals.

  10. I think this is great! Would love to try this.

  11. There are too many products to pick just one, but just because I want to be different, I'd say the Herbal Fresh Pet Shampoo.

  12. I agree about there being too many to pick just one! I'm loving the all purpose spray cleaner, and all the bath and hair products!

  13. I would love to try this out! Great review!! TY!

  14. I would love to try http://www.ecostoreusa.com/sleepytime-bath/ It looks like a great product to calm my fussy little girl. :)

  15. This is great because I've recently started using homemade products and I find that most of them work better than store bought anyway. I make my a version of Windex, shower spray, laundry soap and I now use just vinegar to soften my clothes. I must say, they have NEVER been so soft and no more spots from store bought fabric softener! (Even though I added it to my dispenser.) I'm loving the savings too! :)

  16. I need the product that you reviewed. You have no idea what a messy girl I am!!

  17. I think I'd like the all-purpose cleaner!

  18. I would like to try any of the body wash!

  19. I would like to try all of their shampoos.

  20. I like their body wash and baby bar soap!

  21. the Cucumber shampoo & conditioner

  22. My favorite product is the laundry detergent! :)
