Laundry, it’s one of those chores that you generally dread, but you know it needs to be done. I have to admit, I am guilty of being very slow with my laundry process. I’ll put the clothes in the washer, and I’ll forget to put them in the dryer until hours later, even after all those loud obnoxious beeps! Or I’ll leave the clothes in the dryer for a week. Or I’ll take the clothes out of the dryer and put them in a public area ready to fold, but I don’t fold them for weeks. Anyhow, I’m a busy mom and my mind is always running a mile a minute. Aren’t all of ours? Anything to make my life easier and our clothes fresher and cleaner, I am all for it.
I’ve recently discovered a product, Lysol Laundry Sanitizer, that rids clothes and sportswear of bacteria and lingering odors. This is important to me, because as a mom of a 3 and a 5 year old who are super active (especially at daycare), I want to keep their clothes clean and bacteria free to avoid illness and germs. I want to make sure my detergent can eliminate bacteria that can cause illnesses and create lingering bad smells. Because we all know that once one person gets sick in the house, it’s pretty much inevitable that we all get sick.
Lysol Laundry Sanitizer is an additive specifically designed to kill 99.9% of bacteria when used as directed in the rinse cycle. It does not contain any chlorine bleach and even works in cold water and is safe to use on most fabrics. It’s specifically designed to sanitize your family’s clothes when you need it and it’s easy to use! Some other great uses for Lysol Laundry Sanitizer are washing your child’s clothes or uniforms from after school sports activity, or to rid you or your spouse’s clothes after a sweaty workout. Other uses are on baby clothes, towels, bedding, undergarments and delicates. Detergent alone does not kill bacteria or handle the strong smells of clothing.
To use Lysol Laundry Sanitizer in standard machines, you add 2 capfuls each filled to line 1 of the dosing cup to the fabric softener compartment or directly to your rinse cycle wash. For HE machines, you add 2 capfuls each filled to line 2 of the dosing cup to the fabric softener compartment or directly to your rinse cycle wash. Making sure to follow the directions exactly will make for the most effective use.
You can find it in the laundry care aisle at Target. And from 10/29 – 11/11, you can get 5% off Lysol Laundry Sanitizer — Crisp Linen 41oz using this Cartwheel Coupon offer. From now until 11/5, it will be $5.49. That’s such a great deal that you have to take advantage of, I know I will be stocking up on some more!
Dirty clothes aside, the best part of doing laundry, is that my 5 year old loves to help out and involving him in chores is always a win-win in our household! Well especially because that generally means he gets tokens he can trade for toys or screen time. 😉
