Shout Products Review and Go Play Initiative

10/12/10

Laundry is my least favorite chore and always has been.  I am often having to deal with different stains since I have an active tween son.  Grass stains and ketchup stains are the worst!  I welcome anything that will help me save his clothes.

I recently had the opportunity to review SC Johnson's Shout Laundry products.  We have been using shout stain remover as a staple in our house, so I was excited to have the opportunity to try their new advanced formula and color catchers.





The Shout trigger stain remover is easy to use.  Just spray it directly; it clings to the stain and penetrates.  It's safe for colorfast items and works in all temperatures.  This is great for right away treatments.









The Advanced gel works in all kinds of water temperatures and has a thick formula to help remove the toughest stains.  The scrubby brush is great because you can really get into those set in stains.  And if you don't have time to wash it right away, you can throw it in the hamper and toss it in the wash even a couple of days later.







The new Shout Color Catcher absorbs and traps the loose dyes to prevent bleeding onto your clothes.  I was pretty skeptical when I first heard about it.  After all, what if you try it and ruin your clothes?  But my hubby tried it with darks and whites mixed in together.  You could definitely see the blue coloring on the sheet and our whites didn't have any blue streaks.  We have yet to try this with reds, but so far, it seems to be a time saver.

Shout's Go Play Initiative

The Go Play initiative, brought to you by SC Johnson's Shout and Growing Tree Toys, encourages parents to take their kids outdoors and play.  


Message from Shout: "Shout knows play is so much more than fun and games. Studies show that unstructured play helps kids build fundamental skills like problem solving, coping, and conflict resolution. In other words: play is how kids become happy, healthy adults. Fall has arrived with crisp, cool air and new reasons to go out and play. So, let your kids take that rewarding jump into a pile of leaves. Take at trip to the park and watch their imaginations run free. The one thing you won’t do is worry about their clothes; play should get messy and Shout can help."


For more great ideas, you can visit Shout on their Facebook page.











I love fall!   It's a great time to take nature walks, play in the park, or jump in some leaves.  Outdoor activities are very important for children of all ages.  You can get some fun ideas from The 52 Activities in Nature cards series by Lynn Gordon.  These cards can give you some focused learning activities on your nature walks.  You can purchase them through Amazon.  You can find other learning games and toys from Growing Tree Toys.

I'm so glad you said that Advanced Gel could go on and then sit for a couple of days before washing. Thank you for the post!
