Oxydol Laundry Detergent Is Awesome! - I Use It To Wash My 9 Kids Clothes
Shepherd has shared a short review of Oxydol laundry detergent.
I have 9 children and I have been using Oxydol to wash their clothes for 3 years now.
I love the smell and it does an awesome job at removing stains. I have been using the "Smells Good" scent and wouldn't buy anything else.
Thanks for your review of this laundry detergent.
Wow, with 9 kids I bet you have to do a lot of laundry. One of the good things about Oxydol is that it is lower in cost than many name brand detergents. Of course, it is not easy to find online cheap, but instead I have noted it is available only in certain stores.
I have found that is available at both Meijer and Dollar General, typically, along with many more regional supermarkets.
I would love to hear from even more people, sharing what you think about this detergent. You can share your laundry detergent review here for this, or any other brand, telling me what you like or don't about it, and why.
I am especially interested in hearing how other lower costs varieties of detergent work, since if they work just as well there is no need to buy something that costs more, right?
Oxydol With BIZ Is A Good Cleaner And Stain Remover For Sports Uniforms
I use Oxydol liquid with BIZ already contained in the detergent for washing my son's sports uniforms, currently football.
I can remember my grandmother using Oxydol powder and since I was already a fan of the BIZ product for removing stains I gravitated to the latest form of this detergent which contains it.
For washing his uniforms I follow the approach of soaking with the regular BIZ, then washing with the Oxydol that has the BIZ additive.
They come out great.
This detergent is a lot cheaper than using the other more popular brands. I normally find this at one of the Dollar stores, though it sells for about $3-4.
As I am not one for using detergents that contain perfume for the general wash I normally do not use Oxydol for the rest of my laundry, however if I am running a separate load for my son and there are heavy soil or stains, e.g. food stains on shirts, I will use it.
My sister's son works in a restaurant and she uses it to wash his uniforms.
It is excellent both as a whitener and stain remover. She said that it is especially nice to have a detergent that does so much for such a small price.
Thanks for this review Maria.
I have now heard from two readers saying that this detergent has BIZ added to it, but I have never actually seen confirmation of this on the Oxydol website (which apparently appears to be quite poor, with lots of broken links, etc).
I did see they had a partnership between the two brands though, so I guess this shouldn't surprise me.
If you've used this laundry soap, please tell me what you think of it, and also where you can find it in stores! You can share your review here and I'll add it to the site.
If you have kids then you definitely have lots of laundry stains. I have used Oxydol to remove grass, mud, food, and drink stains.
It also is great at taking out odors like perspiration from smelly gym clothes.
I prefer the powder form which I use to soak stained clothes prior to washing. There is no better approach than soaking heavily stained clothes over night because the real work is being done while I am resting.
My friend works at a day care center and gets various stains on her work clothes like formula, baby food, etc. She also soaks her clothes in Oxydol and has good results, but she said that for the same stains on baby clothes Oxydol would not be the way to go since babies have much more sensitive skin than adults.
To be honest I did not think that Oxydol was still available as it was something my grandmother used.
When I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel where white shirts were required every day I discovered it was still around. One of the workers at the restaurant told me if I wanted an inexpensive way to keep my shirts really white I should get some Oxydol powder and do a 30 minute soak before washing.
She also said it was excellent in getting out all kinds of stains on her white uniforms, as well as grass stains from her son's clothes.
While my job does not cause the amount of stains she has to deal with I have gotten out the occasional coffee and soft drink stains and it is definitely terrific at keeping my shirts a bright white, without the separate addition of any type of additional bleach to the wash.
BTW for stains it really helps if you mix up a paste of the Oxydol and apply it directly to the stain, leaving it on just long enough that it does not dry before dropping it in the washer, unless you prefer to do a soak longer than 30 minutes.
