Spray N Wash Review: Remembering The Awesomeness That Was The Old School Version
I grew up using Spray N Wash pretreater on my clothes -- it was the go to stain remover in our house, and I think in many other people's houses as well.
In fact, I was so devoted to this product that when lots of my friends were having babies (I had my first child a bit younger than many of my friends, so I was the "wise Mom friend") I would make them each a little Mother's survival kit as a baby shower present, and it always included a bottle of this laundry product.
Heaven knows it helped me with all the spots and stains when my first child was little.
There was a time, especially when I was washing bibs constantly, and baby food was in heavy circulation in our home, that I just had it handy on the washer, ready to grab at a moment's notice to spray on just about everything as soon as it got into the laundry room.
However, it seems all good things must come to an end.
For some reason, even though it wasn't broke, at least in my opinion, they decided they needed to "fix" and "improve" my old school Spray N Wash (which many people think is actually called "Spray and Wash" but it's not!).
That's when Resolve took over the brand and added its "special stain fighters" to it.
That is around the time I quit buying it, because I didn't really like the new version. I personally didn't think it worked as well as the older type.
I will confess that I actually bought a huge refill bottle of the old school version, and have been using it successfully for years, and just ignoring the fact that the product now has Resolve in it.
That big bottle would have run out long ago but I've been so busy trying out other stain removers to report my results for this site I still have just a little left, although it is almost all gone now. :(
Did anyone else love this brand of laundry pretreater in the past? If so, I'd love to hear how you used it, and your experiences with it. Further, have you switched to the newer version? Do you like it or not?
In addition, perhaps I've been too hard on the new version. After all, I haven't tried it in years, and I will admit I don't like change, although switching products all the time now to test for this site has made me much more open to new products than I used to be in the past.
