Valyn shared her Oxiclean Max Force gel stick review.
Before going out to dinner with my husband he decided to change out of his work shirt into a more comfortable shirt for going out casually.
In order to keep his work shirt clean, he placed it in his truck, laying it out flat. After we finished dinner, we opened the trunk to put some leftovers in there and realized that the shirt was closed in the latch and some sort of car grease was now on it.
We thought for sure this shirt was ruined and went to CVS to get a spot treater just in case it might be able to be saved. We read the back of every spot cleaner and only one said it was able to do anything to a grease stain, the Oxiclean Max Force gel stick.
We were skeptical, but took it back and treated the shirt, but of course the stain had already been present for a number of hours at this point. Then, I washed the shirt and the stain came out! We were both very impressed.
As a clumsy individual myself I'm a firm believer in the strength of this product and I've been using it ever since that day 8 months ago when I "discovered" it.
Thanks for sharing your review of this product Valyn.
I am a big fan of Oxiclean as a stain remover, but typically the normal powder version doesn't work well on grease stains. That is why they've also created this Max Force product, which is available in a spray, gel stick, and "power packs" that you can throw in the washing machine with your clothes. It is advertised as containing additional solvents and surfactants which can break down these greasy stains.
I've never used this product though, so I would love to hear from others to share how it has worked for them. I have unfortunately read some reviews elsewhere saying that it removes stains, but also removes color dye from the fabric itself. I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this, or perhaps they have fixed this issue with the product.
Oxiclean Max Force Power Paks Caused Allergic Reaction
Yuki shared her review of the Oxiclean Max Force stain remover, in the power paks form.
I used it on a load of my sisters clothes and she was okay.
However, after using it on a smaller load of my clothing with the same amount of soap a hard red rash broke out on my side. I thought it was at first wearing the shorts more then once before washing. But I've done that a million times because they weren't really dirty, so why wash them?
A rash began developing and it was very painful. It was a hard red rash and I had to throw out and buy new underwear. Could it be an allergic reaction?
Sorry to hear about your experience with this product Yuki. What you're describing does sound like an allergic reaction to me (you can read about typical laundry detergent allergy symptoms here), but I'm not a doctor so a medical opinion is always advised.
Most people think of these allergic reactions as being only caused by their detergent, but really it can be any laundry additive, including stain removal products such as Oxiclean Max Force stain remover, for instance.
I'd love to know how others have reacted to this product, in any of its forms, including the power paks, gel and spray. You can share your experiences about allergies, but also with how it worked on your stains. Click here to share your review.
